Jordan Peele series "Weird City" now streaming

The Jordan Peele produced anthology series for Youtube Premium is now available.
Two of the six episodes are available to watch for free right now.

Synopsis: Weird City is set in the near future in the city of Weird, which has been physically divided into two halves and segregated by economic class: Above The Line, populated by Haves, and Below The Line, populated by Have-Nots. Each episode follows different individuals as they navigate life in the city.

Episode 1 stars Dylan O'Brien (Teen Wolf, The Maze Runner), Ed O'Neil (Modern Family, Married With Children), and Levar Burton (Star Trek TNG, Roots).

Stu (O'Brien) lives Above The Line but was born Below it, and thus was never assigned a romantic partner at birth. He uses a dating service that claims to find perfect matches, and is paired with Burt (O'Neill). Despite both men identifying as straight and their significant age difference, they form a friendship that quickly becomes a romantic relationship.

Episode 2 features Michael Cera and Rosario Dawson.

Kicked out of his Pomegranate Electrolyte Juice addiction support group and fired from his job, failure Tawny (Cera) joins ShapeCult gym hoping to find the acceptance he so desperately needs. Unfortunately, his psychotic obsession with approval puts him at odds with his gym trainer Delt (Dawson).


The season features Dylan O'Brien, Ed O'Neill, Levar Burton, Michael Cera, Rosario Dawson, Auli’i Cravalho, Laverne Cox, Sara Gilbert, Gillian Jacobs, Hannah Simone, Malcolm Barrett, Steven Yeun, Awkwafina, and Yyvette Nicole Brown.

Youtube Premium was formerly Youtube Red (which presumably changed their name for obvious reasons).


Looks interesting. I think Youtube Premium wants to shake off the idea that their original content is just vloggers making their own shows (which kind of what it was initially, right?)
