The cast for Amazon Prime’s Fairfax series is looking stacked.
The streaming giant announced Skyler Gisondo, Kiersey Clemons, Peter S. Kim, and Jaboukie Young-White have been tapped to voice the lead characters of the adult animated series. The show is based on the iconic Fairfax Avenue in Los Angeles, often referred to as the Mecca of streetwear culture.
The series will follow four middle-schoolers who are on a never-ending quest for clout, as they endure the all-too common struggle of fitting in while also standing out. Here are the character descriptions released by Amazon:
- Gisondo voices Dale, an earnest, outdoorsy kid from Oregon, who is new to Los Angeles. He loves his dad and his fanny pack, and with his cargo shorts and hiking boots, he’s the accidental poster child for normcore. Gisondo’s credits include Booksmart and The Righteous Gemstones.
- Clemons voices Derica, an aspiring model-slash-activist who is determined to save the planet in style. Clemons is best known for appearing in Hearts Beat Loud and The Flash.
- Kim voices Benny, a savvy sneakerhead on a mission for generational clout—right after he practices cello and walks the dog. Kim is best known as a writer on Fox’s Housebroken and was named a “New Face” at the 2021 Just For Laughs Comedy Festival.
- Young-White voices Truman, a self-proclaimed “auteur” filmmaker and a budding Casanova. Young-White is best known for appearing in The Daily Show and Dating & New York.
The innagural season, which will consist of eight episodes, is being executive produced by creators Matt Hausfater, Aaron Buchsbaum, and Teddy Riley.
“[Fairfax] is a love letter to kids today – the generation that will most definitely save the world from global warming, if they don’t die from eating Tide Pods first,” Hausfater, Buchbaum and Riley said in a statement last year. “It’s a modern look at the timeless struggle to be cooler than you are, to fit in while standing out, and what it feels like to wait in line for a pair of sneakers you’re never going to cop. We’re incredibly excited to be working with Serious Business, Somehoodlum, Pizzaslime, Titmouse, and Amazon Studios. We couldn’t have asked for a better team.”
The series will also feature a slew of guest stars, including Pamela Adlon as Phyllis; Jeff Bottoms as The Plug; Yvette Nicole Brown as Trini; Rob Delaney as Grant, Zoey Deutch as Lily; Colton Dunn as Principal Weston; John Leguizamo as Glenn the pigeon; Camila Mendes as Melody; Larry Owensas Jules; Linda Park as Joy; Billy Porter as Hiroki Hassan; Ben Schwartz as Cody; Tim Simons as Brian; and JB Smoove as Quattro the pigeon.
