Netflix describes the show as “a hidden camera prank show where two strangers each think it’s their first day at a new job.
“It’s business as usual until their paths collide and these part-time jobs turn into full-time nightmares.”
Matarazzo shot to fame after starring in the first season of Stranger Things in 2016, alongside his fellow child co-stars Finn Wolfhard, Millie Bobby Brown and Caleb McLaughlin.
He will reprise the role of Dustin when the sci-fi drama returns for a third season in July.
Matarazzo is also a musician and raises awareness for cleidocranial dysplasia, a condition he has and which affects development of bones and teeth.
Stranger Things season three will stream on Netflix on July 4.
