Instead, they’ve been recreated on screen using Deep Fake technology, which has turned impressionists into some of the world’s most famous celebrities.
Deep Fake Neighbour Wars will be released on ITVX early next year, and an early look has been given at the ground-breaking show.
The 30-second preview starts with Olivia and Jay-Z sitting next to each other on a couch, before the rapper says: ‘Technology, incredible’, and a bunch of celebrities are seen in the suburbs.
Idris Elba is posing outside his home, Kim looks like a council worker in a high-vis vest, Tom Holland and Nicki Minaj are wearing matching pink velour tracksuits, Adele appears to be a schoolteacher and Stormzy seems ready to deliver mail.
The comedy impressions series, which will comprise of six 30-minute episodes, will be the world’s first form narrative show that uses Deep Fake technology.
But instead of following the lives of the rich and famous, they’re now ordinary people who happen to be embroiled in petty silly neighbour disputes.
Rather than playing a superhero and being loved up with Zendaya, Tom has shacked up with Nicki.
But there’s trouble in paradise because there next-door neighbour Mark Zuckerberg isn’t making life easy.
Elsewhere, Idris gets a shock when new neighbour Kim starts making her presence known in their communal garden, Harry Kane’s perfect patio is damaged by upstairs neighbour Stormzy and Dental Hygienist Billie Eilish clashes with neighbour Beyonce when she starts working from home.
The preview also showed that Greta looks like she’s a teen mum who lives in Southend-on-Sea, Rihanna is also away from the bright lights, Ariana Grande and Conor McGregor might be married, Harry is playing it up for the cameras and Chris Rock is trying to beef up.
It ends with Matthew McConaughey enjoying the sunshine, sitting in his garden, before uttering his catchphrase ‘Alright, Alright, Alright…now we are having fun’.
Created by Spencer Jones (Mister Winner, The Mind of Herbert Clunkerdunk), and written alongside two of this year’s Edinburgh Comedy Award nominees Jordan Gray and Josh Pugh, the series also stars impressionists and comedians including Katia Kvinge, Al Foran and Scheiffer Bates.
ITV’s Head of Comedy Nana Hughes said that the show’s visuals ‘will fascinate, the world will titillate and the impressions will fixate’.
‘It is hugely exciting to bring AI technology to quite literally change the face of comedy on ITVX.’
Deep Fake Neighbour Wars will stream on ITVX in January.
