Constance Wu, who you know and love as Jessica Huang on Fresh Off The Boat, has joined the cast of Dimension 404, a Hulu six-episode sci-fi/fantasy anthology scripted series from Freddie Wong's RocketJump.

Inspired by the internet's "404" error code, Dimension 404 aims to evoke "wandering onto the weird side of the web at 3 AM and stumbling upon stories that cannot be explained in the world that we know."
The Twilight Zone-esque series will explore questions like: What if an obscure cartoon held the secret to time travel? What if energy drinks caused the apocalypse? What if the NSA's top analyst was a gigantic, all-knowing cube of sentient meat named Bob? These are questions that I, too, would like answers to.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Wu will play Jane, a military psychologist on active duty, who wants nothing more than to spend Christmas leave with her wife and daughter. However, the U.S. government cancels her plans and re-assigns her to a much more vital task: help the NSA's unusual but most valued agent overcome his performance issues in order to stop a deadly terrorist attack.
Megan Mullally will also star in the episode as Director Stevens, a hardened, no-nonsense military commander who oversees the top-secret, cutting-edge NSA project. The cast of Dimenson 404 also includes Sarah Hyland, Patton Oswalt, Ashley Rickards, Joel McHale, Lea Michele, Ryan Lee and Sterling Beaumon.
Dimension 404, from RocketJump and Lionsgate, is created by Dez Dolly and Will Campos, with co-creators Dan Johnson and David Welch. Executive producers include Arnold, Dolly, who also will serve as showrunner, and Wong, who will direct.
