YouTube Premium has premiered the official trailer for Jordan Peele’s new anthology sci-fi comedy series “Weird City”. In addition, a February 13th premiere date has been set.
The story is set in a near-future city called Weird with no middle class – only those above or below the line – and is presided over by the mysterious Dr. Negari, who weaves all of our stories together.
Each episode is a topic that pertains to present day life in America and the world: social media addiction, online dating, fitness obsession and more. Cast includes Dylan O’Brien, Awkwafina, Michael Cera, Rosario Dawson, Steven Yeun, Ed O’Neil, Hannah Simone, Gillian Jacobs, Laverne Cox, Malcolm Barrett, Mark Hamill, Yvette Nicole Brown, Levar Burton and Sara Gilbert.
Peele and former “Key & Peele” writer Charlie Sanders penned the series with Adam Bernstein helming the first two episodes.
