From the Mind of Jordan Peele
There is certainly no shortage of sci-fi on TV lately. In fact, it is about to get even more which is not surprising since data shows that the sci-fi genre is the most watched on streaming platforms. With both Amazon and Netflix adding more sci-fi shows in 2019, YouTube is also following suit via their YouTube Originals.
One of these is ‘Weird City’, and YouTube has released the very first trailer. The show comes from the creative mind of Jordan Peele (‘Key and Peele’, ‘Get Out’) and features a star studded cast.
This includes Michael Cera (Juno), Rosario Dawson (Jane the Virgin), Steven Yeun (The Walking Dead), Ed O’Neil (Modern Family), Gillian Jacobs (Community), Levar Burton (Star Trek), Mark Hamill (Star Wars) and more.
See the trailer for yourself below:
