A science-fiction anthology from Jordan Peele, the Oscar-winning writer-director of “Get Out,” and former “Key & Peele” writer Charlie Sanders has received a series order from YouTube Premium, Variety reports.
The six-episode comedic series is set to roll out in 2019.
“’Weird City,’ as it is called, is set in the not-too-distant future metropolis of Weird,” Variety notes. “Each episode is an exploration of issues that pertains to present day life, stories that could only be told now through the prism of sci-fi and comedy.”
The project is written by co-creators Peele and Sanders and produced by Peele’s Monkeypaw Productions, Sonar Entertainment, Mosaic and Raskal Productions.
“Jose Molina will serve as showrunner and executive producer,” Variety notes. “Peele, Sanders and Bernstein will also serve as executive producers along with Win Rosenfeld, who will executive produce for Monkeypaw, Tom Lesinski and Jenna Santoianni for Sonar, Sam Hansen and Jimmy Miller for Mosaic, and Keith Raskin and Linda Morel for Raskal.”
