Jordan Peele’s upcoming YouTube original “Weird City” is not your typical dystopian series.
The new YouTube Premium original anthology series features a star-studded cast (Dylan O’Brien, Sara Gilbert, Mark Hamill, Gillian Jacobs, Awkwafina, Laverne Cox, Rosario Dawson, Michael Cera and Ed O’Neil) and takes place in a bizarre science fiction world.
In the futuristic society, the residents live either Above the Line (The Haves) and Below the Line (The Have Nots).
And that jurisdiction determines the City of Weird’s approach to dating, healthcare and transportation.
Throughout the six-episode series that mixes comedy with dystopia, LeVar Burton will star as the mad scientist.
“Weird City” premieres exclusively on YouTube Premium February 13.
