Writer/director/funny man Jordan Peele is one busy dude! His latest project Weird City is a quirky six-episode anthology series that takes place in the city of Weird sometime in the not-too-distant future.
Utilizing Peele’s ability to bend genres, each episode will unpack present-day issues like social media addiction, online dating, appearance obsession and more through a sci-fi comedic lens. In this dystopian world, the city is divided into two sections: Above the Line (The Haves) and Below the Line (The Have Nots) where citizens live under the rule of the mysterious Dr. Negari — the link between each character’s story.
Produced by Peele’s Monkeypaw Productions, Weird City will star Rosario Dawson, Michael Cera, and Dylan O’Brien with guest appearances by Awkwafina, Hannah Simone, and Gillian Jacobs.
