Set to bow in Prime Video October 29, Fairfax follows four middle school best friends on their never-ending quest for clout on Fairfax Avenue in Los Angeles—the pulsing heart of hypebeast culture.
The series executive produced by Hausfater, Buchsbaum, and Riley. Additional executive producers include Jon Zimelis and Jason U. Nadler for Serious Business; Peter A. Knight; and Chris Prynoski, Ben Kalina, and Antonio Cannobio for Titmouse. The artist Somehoodlum, who designed the characters for the series, serves as a consulting producer alongside the pop/internet culture clothing and media brand Pizzaslime.
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.
Clemons will play Derica, an aspiring model-slash-activist who is determined to save the planet in style.
Kim voices Benny, a savvy sneakerhead on a mission for generational clout—right after he practices cello and walks the dog.
Young-White portrays Truman, a self-proclaimed “auteur” filmmaker and a budding Casanova.
The series will see Adlon as Phyllis, Bottoms as The Plug, Brown as Trini, Delaney as Grant, Deutch as Lily, Dunn as Principal Weston and Leguizamo as Glenn the pigeon.
