Real-life couple Lea Michele and Robert Buckley are taking their relationship to the small screen in an episode of Hulu’s upcoming sci-fi anthology series Dimension 404.

The six-episode series of standalone stories is inspired by the infamous “404” Internet error code. Each hour-long episode will explore an unexplainable tech tale, ranging from an all-knowing sentient cube of meat named Bob to a cartoon that holds the secret to time travel. Think The Twilight Zone, but digital.

Michele (Scream Queens, Glee) and Buckley (iZombie, One Tree Hill) will star in one installment as Amanda and Adam, two Internet-crossed lovers who meet on a matchmaking site with baffling consequences. In another episode, this one set in 1982, Ryan Lee (Trophy Wife) will star as Andrew, a closeted gay man who finds himself addicted to video games and drawn into a mysterious new arcade game.

Dez Dolly, who will serve as showrunner, created Dimension 404 with Will Campos with co-creators Dan Johnson and David Welch. Freddie Wong and Matthew Arnold will executive-produce.
