YouTube Premium needs content that will make you pay with dosh, so what could be better than copying – I mean a ‘homage’ – to the UK’s scifi Black Mirror TV series, with their own satirical science fiction anthology exploring the messed up near future, called Weird City.

This one has some interesting names taking part, too, including LeVar Burton.

Here’s the series’ official blurb:

From the mind of Jordan Peele and Charlie Sanders comes Weird City, a satirical anthology set in the not-too-distant future metropolis of Weird. 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.
