Watch: Aziz Ansari Navigates Romance in Netflix’s ‘Master of None’ Trailer

The trailer for Aziz Ansari’s Netflix show “Master of None” has landed.

Ansari has found success with the streaming service in the past, releasing his comedy specials “Buried Alive” and “Live At Madison Square Garden” with Netflix. His new scripted series aims to continue that streak.

Ansari stars as Dev, a 30-year-old living in New York whose personal and professional life are growing increasingly tumultuous.

“Whoever you’re dating now at this stage could be who you end up with. It’s a big decision. It’s hard.” Ansari’s character says in the clip.

The trailer also shows Dev struggling as an actor. He’s seen arguing with a friend about a white guy playing an Indian character in “The Social Network” before being told the actor was 1/16th Indian.

“If we go back far enough, we’re all 1/16th something,” he says. “I’m probably 1/16th black. You think they’re going to let me play Blade?”

H. Jon Benjamin, Lena Waithe, Eric Wareheim, Noel Wells and Kelvin Yu also star in the series. Ansari co-created the show with Alan Yang and exec produces with Yang, Michael Schur, Dave Becky and David Miner.

Ansari explored similar themes in a book he wrote with sociologist Eric Klinenberg, “Modern Love,” which came out in June.

Master of None” hits Netflix on Friday, Nov. 6.
