It’s not exactly a horror project but we figured you guys would probably be interested in checking out the trailer for YouTube Premium’s “Weird City,“ a six-episode sci-fi/comedy anthology series from the minds of Jordan Peele and Charlie Sanders (“Key and Peele”).
The satirical anthology, co-written by Peele and Sanders, is set in the not-too-distant future metropolis of Weird, where 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.
Adam Bernstein (Fargo, Scrubs, 30 Rock) directed the first two episodes. Jose Molina (Marvel’s Agent Carter, Sleepy Hollow) serves as showrunner and executive producer.
Jordan Peele also executive produces the series, which debuts February 13.
