What is Ultra City Smith’s About?
The great and talented creator of Patriot, Steve Conrad, has given his efforts and brains to this new dark comedy that revolves around a city that’s quite a reflection of Manhattan city but not exactly the same one. Ultra City is a retro version of the present New York which features stop-motion baby dolls with the vocal talents of Kristen Bell, Jimmi Simpson, Da’Vine Joy Randolph, Dax Shepard, Bebe Neuwirth and many more talents.
It’s a kind of musical noir with dance, comedy, mystery, and much more. It might sound a little confusing, so let’s clear this one out. The show is a representation of mixed up genres where you will get to enjoy not just the retro settings but also the music, dance, comedy and mystery.

The show consists of six episodes which are co-directed by Conrad with David H. Brooks. Besides this, they are also working with Stoopid Buddy Studios – the outfit behind Robot Chicken. The show consists of corrupt politicians, pro wrestlers, plucky criminals, hard- and soft-boiled cops, matchy-matchy youth gangs and a disco called Studio 254.
Ultra City Smith’s shows the dominance of capitalism in the society which is not easy to escape with many other issues as that of flawed system and beliefs. There are 22 characters in the show, and in some way or the other, each reflects the different problems existing in society.
