From the mind of Jordan Peele and Charlie Sanders comes WEIRD CITY, a satirical anthology 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.
The series stars Michael Cera, Rosario Dawson, LeVar Burton, Awkwafina. The series will premiere on Youtube in 2019. Emmy winner, Adam Bernstein, is set to direct the first two episodes. Peele’s other anthology series, the rebooted Twilight Zone, is also set to premiere sometime in 2019.
