The sci-fi/comedy series features a star-studded cast including LeVar Burton, Malcolm Barrett, Trevor Jackson, Yvette Nicole Brown, Sara Gilbert, Dylan O'Brien, Ed O'Neill, Michael Cera, Awkwafina, Auli'i Cravalho, Steven Yeun, Eugene Cordero, Gillian Jacobs, Hannah Simone, Mark Hamill, Rosario Dawson, and Laverne Cox. Jordan Peele and former Key & Peele writer Charlie Sanders teamed up to create the YouTube Premium series Weird City, a sci-fi anthology that brings the amusing to futuristic dystopias. The six-episode anthology series explores a dystopian world through a humorous lens. Basically, it's like Black Mirror, but amusing. 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". Meanwhile, the average day workers lead a much tougher life and are left to fold their laundry by hand! Every episode he introduces a new innovation that will improve dating, healthcare, transportation, or sex, but resulting in ridiculous situations that the denizens of Weird City just accept as par for the course. Not only does this show have potential to provide great memes, but everyone and their mother will be talking about it. While the episodes will all tell different stories, there will be one constant in the form of Dr. Negari.More news: New Florida gov to 'hold government officials accountable'
