Award-winning filmmaker Jordan Peele released the trailer for his new sci-fi comedy Weird City.
The YouTube Original series is a satirical anthology that follows the lives of different characters in the not-too-distant future metropolis of Weird, where the middle class has disappeared and only the rich (living “above the line”) and the poor (“below the line”) exist. Each episode is an exploration of issues that are relevant today, done through the prism of sci-fi and comedy.
The cast includes Rosario Dawson, Ed O' Neill, Steven Yuen, Laverne Cox, Michael Cera (Superbad), Awkwafina (Crazy Rich Asians), Dylan O'Brien (Teen Wolf), and Gillian Jacobs (Community).
The six-episode series will debut exclusively on YouTube Premium Saturday, February 13.
Peele currently has several projects in the works as well as a horror thriller Us, which is set to premiere in March.
