Jordan Peele Shares First Trailer for His Sci-Fi Comedy ‘Weird City’

Get ready to enter the freaky world of Jordan Peele's Weird City, as EW got the exclusive first trailer for the six-part YouTube Originals series from the Oscar and Emmy-winning creator on Wednesday.

Jordan Peele has been busy. "Weird City" is being sold as a satirical anthology series, with each episode taking place in the city metropolis of Weird; the city is divided into two segregated sections of the rich and the poor. But all of them are guinea pigs to the mysterious Dr. Negari (Burton), who is the one recurring constant in each episode of this anthology series. 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. Basically, it's like Black Mirror, but amusing. Presiding over the denizens of the city is the odd and mysterious Dr. Negari, who weaves all of our stories together.

The show stars LeVar Burton, Steven Yeun, Gillian Jacobs, Awkwafina, Laverne Cox, Rosario Dawson, Michael Cera and more.
