It is known as ‘Bizarre Metropolis’ and it is, effectively, bizarre.
Dwelling within the period of peak TV might be extraordinarily exhausting: as quickly as you suppose you’re on prime of all of the content material that each streaming service beneath the solar has to give you, unexpectedly you learn that Jordan Peele has created a model new bizarro sci-fi comedy sequence for Youtube.
However sure, I’m afraid to let you know that Jordan Peele has certainly created such a present, which means that you simply’ll need to put that rewatch of Russian Doll on maintain, head on over to Youtube Purple, and take a look at Bizarre Metropolis.
An anthology comedy sequence set in a bizarro, futuristic metropolis named — you guessed it — Bizarre, the present’s a mixture between surrealist gags and darkish, critical political jabs (Bizarre is split by a wall that separates the wealthy and the poor, for instance.)
So, prepare for six episodes of off-the-wall tv that’ll make you snicker outwardly and inwardly weep for the forthcoming collapse of our deeply ridiculous species!
The present was co-created by Charlie Sanders, who’s a veteran of Key & Peele, to not point out no stranger to weirdo, outsider, cult TV fare — he performed Officer Joe in MTV’s deeply underrated Demise Valley, a sort of monster-filled send-up of Cops.
There’s a heap of different thrilling gifted concerned too. Amy Heckerling, the director of Clueless, helmed two episodes, and Adam Bernstein, the person chargeable for the music video for The B-52’s ‘Love Shack’, helmed a bunch extra.
There’s no scarcity of expertise in entrance of the digicam both: Rosario Dawson, Michael Cera, and Luke Skywalker himself, Mark Hamill, all seem. Oh, as do Ed O’Neill, the dad from Trendy Household, and Dylan O’Brien, who play a loving couple.
