Variety reports that YouTube Premium has ordered a new comedic sci-fi anthology from co-creators Jordan Peele and Charlie Sanders.
The writing duo, formerly of “Key & Peele” will helm the series titled Weird City. The anthology was described by Peele as a series of “comedy driven twisted-ass science fiction stories.”
“Writer/creator Charlie Sanders and I collaborated on some ‘Key & Peele’ sketches that took on everything from the ‘Black Republicans’ to ‘Continental Breakfasts’ to ‘Family Matters’,” said Peele. “Now, with YouTube, we present a series of comedy-driven twisted science fiction stories that take place in a world close to ours but just a little bit off.”
The series is produced by Peele’s Monkeypaw Productions, Sonar Entertainment, Mosaic, and Raskal Productions. Jose Molina will serve as showrunner and executive producer.
Peele is currently working on another anthology series serving as executive producer a reboot of The Twilight Zone at CBS All Access.
