Hulu is throwing its hat in the anthology ring with Dimension 404, a science-fiction miniseries of six hour-long standalone episodes. Since each episode stands on its own with completely different characters and worlds, a la Black Mirror, casting news has only come in one story at a time. The latest announcement is that Megan Mullally (Will & Grace, You, Me, & the Apocalypse) and Constance Wu (Fresh Off the Boat) will star in one episode centered around the NSA.
Mullally is set to play Director Stevens, a no-nonsense counterterrorism commander, while Wu is Jane, a military psychologist who would love to spend Christmas with her wife and daughter, but first has to help the NSA’s best agent overcome his performance issues.
Previously announced Dimension 404 stars include Sarah Hyland and Patton Oswalt, as a girl and her movie nerd uncle faced with the emergence of a strange new movie format called Cinethrax, and Lea Michele and Robert Buckley, as a couple plagued by the problems of modern online dating.
Dimension 404, which purposely evokes the famous internet error code, was created by Dez Dolly and Will Campos and distributed by Lionsgate. Dolly will serve as showrunner and executive-produce alongside RocketJump’s Freddie Wong and Matthew Arnold.
