What if an obscure cartoon held the secret to time travel? What if energy drinks caused the apocalypse? What if you made Black Mirror, but with Lea Michele? These are just a few of the questions that Hulu’s new anthology series Dimension 404 will attempt to answer. One of the series’ six standalone episodes will star Michele and Robert Buckley (iZombie, One Tree Hill, headlines about dating Lea Michele) as Amanda and Adam, who meet on an online dating site (with a futuristic twist, we assume). Ryan Lee (Trophy Wife) will star in another episode as a closeted, introverted teenage video-game addict (so, me at 16?) who discovers a mysterious and powerful arcade game. With an eye to the “wonders and horrors of the digital age,” Dimension 404 “aims to evoke the feeling of wandering onto the weird side of the web at 3 a.m.” In which case, we look forward to reveal that, oh shit whaddup, Lea Michele is Dat Boi.
