What to watch

Weird City

Self described as “a new anthology series that crosses the line”, Weird City comes to YouTube from the minds of Jordan Peele and Charlie Sanders. The show has some A-list talent, including Ed O’Neill, Rosario Dawson, Michael Cera, and Mark Hamill.

Here’s the YouTube Description and Trailer:

In this dystopian setting of our show, 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.
