Jordan Peele's Sci-Fi Satire Anthology Series Weird City Gets First Trailer

Weird City

The first trailer for Weird City, the new sci-fi anthology series from Jordan Peele, has been released online.

Jordan Peele has been flexing his creative muscles lately, with a number of new series and shows coming from the director/writer/producer. His new film Us is slated to open this year's SXSW film festival, he's set to produce the upcoming reboot of Candyman and he's serving as the host (and executive producer) the new incarnation of Twilight Zone.

And now, the first trailer for his upcoming YouTube Originals series Weird City has been released.

Created alongside former Key & Peele writer Charlie Sanders, this anthology series Weird City is set to mix blistering satire with classic sci-fi tropes.

The show takes place in a futuristic world where the difference between the upper and lower classes of society have grown to the point where the wealthy are full separated from the rest of society by a giant wall that separates people "Above the Line" and "Below the Line". The tone of the series seems to be a hybrid of Black Mirror and Idiocracy, which shouldn't come as any surprise following the sardonic and subversive other works by Peele.
