Weird City Trailer Reaction: 4 Ups & 1 Down

Originals

Peele, who won an Oscar past year for his directorial debut, the searing social satire horror film Get Out, is fast becoming the busiest man in showbiz across film, television, and streaming platforms.

Futuristic living, DNA matching, and fitness cults are coming to life in Jordan Peele's new sci-fi YouTube series, Weird City. 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". He will also serve as an executive producer alongside Peele, Sanders, Win Rosenfeld (Monkeypaw), Sam Hansen and Jimmy Miller (Mosaic), Tom Lesinski and Jenna Santoianni (Sonar), Keith Raskin and Linda Morel (Raskal) and Jose Molina, who is also Weird City's showrunner.

The show takes place in a dystopian society, where there isn't a middle class and Weird City is divided into two areas: Above the Line (The Haves), and Below the Line (The Have Nots).

Michael Cera, Awkwafina, Rosario Dawson, Dylan O'Brien, Laverne Cox, Steven Yeun, Ed O'Neil, Hannah Simone, Mark Hamill, Yvette Nicole Brown, Trevor Jackson, and Auli'i Cravalho are among the stars of Weird City, which is just one of Peele's many projects across film, TV, and streaming platforms.
