Wacky Trailer For Jordan Peele's New Funny and Satirical Sci-Fi Anthology Series WEIRD CITY
YouTube Premium has released the first trailer for Jordan Peele and Charlie Sanders’ new satirical sci-fi anthology series Weird City.
The series looks like it could be crazy entertaining and it’s a series I’ll definitely be checking out. I really like the fun and strange wackiness of what I’m seeing in this trailer. I know Jordan Peele has become known for his twisted horror film Get Out and his upcoming movie Us, but it’s good to see him involved with comedy again.
As you’ll see, Weird City has an impressive cast of actors that include LeVar Burton, Mark Hamill, Michael Cera, Awkwafina, Rosario Dawson, Dylan O’Brien, Laverne Cox, Steven Yeun, Ed O’Neil, Hannah Simone, Yvette Nicole Brown, Trevor Jackson, and Auli’i Cravalho.
The story is set in the not-too-distant future metropolis of Weird. “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). Presiding over the denizens of the city is the strange and 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, etc.. WEIRD CITY captures the unease of modern urban living, in a bizarre and peculiar lens.”
Weird City premieres on February 13, 2019. Watch the trailer and hit us up with any thoughts you might have on it!
