Each episode tells a separate story that offers a skewed presentation of hot topics such as police brutality, wake culture, and gun violence. The corrosive humor is delightful, and the fact that Novak has put together a star-studded cast – including Ben Platt (“Dear Evan Hansen”), Lucas Hedges (“Manchester by the Sea”), Daniel Dae Kim (“Lost”), Kaitlyn Dever (” Booksmart”) and Tracee Ellis Ross (“Black-ish”) – is a useful bonus.
