Aziz Ansari may just rise to a whole new level of stardom due to his new Netflix show, Masters of None.
Ansari returns to television in his first major role since playing the swag, lovable supporting character Tom Haverford in NBC's Parks and Recreation. But in Masters of None, Ansar is the leading man as he plays Dev, a New York actor looking for direction in his life.
The first trailer for Masters of None was released by Netflix today, and by the looks of it, this will be a huge vehicle for Ansari.
Dev is shown having an awkward sexual encounter with a woman (played by SNL alum Noel Wells), being instructed to do "an accent" (a.k.a. Indian) in an acting audition, discussing love with his father and more.
Much of the trailer centers on Dev's feelings about love, a topic Ansari covered extensively in his recent nonfiction book, Modern Romance.
Based on the Netflix press release for the series, Masters of None will delve deeply into Ansari's own "comedic viewpoints" both in his personal and professional experiences.
"Ambitious, funny, cinematic, and both sweeping in scope and intensely personal, Dev's story takes him through subjects as diverse as the plight of the elderly, the immigrant experience, and how to find the most delicious pasta for dinner," the press release reads.
Masters of None will begin streaming on Netflix on Friday, Nov. 6, with the first season presumably made available at once as per Netflix's business model.
