The show stars Ansari as Dev, a young New Yorker just trying to live his life, man. A lot of the humor seems to stem from the same awkward, sociological coming-of-age experiences that inspired his recent stand-up special and book. According to Deadline:
Master Of None follows the personal and professional lives of…a 30-year-old actor in New York who has trouble deciding what he wants to eat, much less the pathway for the rest of his life. 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 10-episode first season premieres Nov. 6 on Netflix.
