New Coen Brothers Anthology Series Headed To Netflix

(AOTN) Best known for their work in the realm of film, brothers Ethan and Joel Coen are well on their way to further making their mark in the TV realm as well! It has just been revealed that Netflix has acquired the rights to the Coen Brothers Western anthology series “The Ballad Of Buster Scruggs”.  This will mark the Coen Brothers first work as writers and directors for television, although they do have executive producer credits.

The first season of the series will consist of six episodes and is said to begin streaming on Netflix sometime in 2018.  Here’s what we know about the series so far:

“The Ballad of Buster Scruggs” will be divided into six different stories, each one focusing on a different viewpoint and tale of the Wild Wild West. Tim Blake Nelson (O’Brother, The Incredible Hulk) will take on the role of Buster Scruggs, the hero of the story, opposite a cast of Coen brothers veterans that will include James Franco, Zoe Kazan (Bored to Death), Tyne Daly (Spider-Man: Homecoming), Stephen Root (Boardwalk Empire) and Ralph Ineson (The Witch).

Robert Graf, who has regularly collaborated with the pair over the past few years on films like True Grit, Inside Llewyn Davis and No Country for Old Men will also work on the series.

The series is being partially filmed in the Nebraska Panhandle, as well as, in parts of New Mexico.
