On April 4th, RocketJump will premiere a new show, and this one looks like it’s going to get weird. The digital studio co-founded by Freddie Wong has launched a short teaser for Dimension 404, an anthology series coming soon to Hulu.
Each of Dimension 404’s six hour-long episodes will tell a self-contained story, with the Internet serving as a consistent plot device throughout the series. The general understanding is that Dimension 404 will be a Twilight Zone for the digital age, a la Black Mirror. A press release says the show “aims to evoke that 3 a.m. feeling of wandering onto the weird side of the web, stumbling upon stories that cannot be explained in the world that we know.”
A big selling point of Dimension 404 will be its talented cast, which will include Lea Michele, Joel McHale, Megan Mullally, and Patton Oswalt. Mark Hamill will serve as the show’s narrator. At the same time, as the show’s teaser shows, it will be a visual feast. Showrunner Dez Dolly and his team will look to deliver the polished, effects-laden action the RocketJump audience has come to crave. He and Wong hosted the fresh teaser, which introduces Dimension 404 and gives viewers a quick peek.
Dimension 404 will be RocketJump’s second scripted series, following Video Game High School, and its second collaboration with Hulu, following RocketJump: The Show. If you’re in the U.S., you can check out the studio’s new effort on 4/04. For other viewers, unfortunately, the series is going to be a file not found for now.
