Donald Glover has some high praise for Quinta Brunson’s hit ABC series,Abbott Elementary.
During the season five launch of LeBron James’ HBO series The Shop: Uninterrupted, Glover raved over Brunson’s new hit show, expressing how big of a fan he is of the series.
“When I watched that show, I was like so jealous,” Glover told Brunson. She then interrupted saying, “Donald no, I’m jealous of you every day.”
“But that’s what I’m saying, in a good way, that’s how I knew it was good” Glover continued. “Sometimes I watch something that’s like good, but I’m like yeah I wouldn’t have done that. Watching, I was so jealous cause I was like ‘this is a good show.’ And it’s hard to do that on network television. That’s hard to do, doing it on a big stage like that and not pulling punches and understanding yourself enough to get it through, that’s really hard.”

After Glover complimented her show, Brunson took some time to rave over his hit FX series Atlanta as well as other Black-led television shows paving the way.
“It is hard, but then what helps make it possible is what you’ve done with Atlanta, what Issa’s done with Insecure, what even the smaller shows like Flatbush Misdemeanors, those things all equate to finally all the puzzle pieces coming together,” Brunson said.
