Jordan Peele's Upcoming Series "Weird City" Is The Ultimate Sci-Fi Comedy

The cast is completely star-studded

YouTube has been churning out a horde of original content in recent years through its very own streaming platform YouTube Premium, holding its own against the other streaming giants of the world - and with Academy Award-winner Jordan Peele behind its next offering, Weird City, that isn't set to change anytime soon.

Jordan Peele has been busy. The trailer debuted today and from first glimpse the title really lives up to its name, as it depicts the lives of people who live in lower class below "the line".

'Weird City' looks like it's going to be all kinds of awesome. Basically, it's like Black Mirror, but amusing.

However, the 31-year-old has denied any wrong-doing and says the way the camera caught him was "a coincidence". The resemblance to a gesture like that is purely coincidental and hasn't been intentional.

"In this dystopian setting of our show, the middle class has completely vanished dividing Weird City into two sections: Above the Line (The Haves), and Below the Line (The Have Nots),"the description of the show reads". While the episodes will all tell different stories, there will be one constant in the form of Dr. Negari.

The series will be set in the not-so-distant future metropolis of Weird. Each episode of the series will tackle a topic that is relevant to present day America, from social media addiction and online dating, to fitness obsession and beyond. WEIRD CITY captures the unease of modern urban living, in a freaky and peculiar lens.

Michael Cera, Awkwafina, Rosario Dawson, Dylan O'Brien, Laverne Cox, The Walking Dead alum Steven Yeun, Modern Family star Ed O'Neil, and New Girl's Hannah Simone are among the cast recruited by Peele in the anthology series that will debut on YouTube Premium on February 13. Peele's highly anticipated sophomore feature Us hits theaters in March, while next month will see the release of Lorena, a four-part documentary on Lorena Bobbitt that he produced for Amazon.
