Who's up for something weird?

This event hasn't gotten much love on Forekast, but we thought it was getting overlooked so we're featuring it this week. 

Jordan Peele has a new show dropping on YouTube on Tuesday called Weird City. If you haven't seen the trailer yet, check it out here

It's self-described as “a new anthology series that crosses the line”. The show has some A-list talent, including Ed O’Neill, Rosario Dawson, Michael Cera, and Mark Hamill.
