The Coen brothers’ first ever television series will premiere on Netflix in 2018.
An anthology series, titled The Ballad of Buster Scruggs, the project will feature six tales about the American frontier, each based on a different story about the American West. Written and directed by Joel and Ethan Coen, Tim Blake Nelson (aka Delmar in O Brother, Where Art Thou?) stars as Buster.
“We are streaming motherfuckers!” the Coen brothers said in a joint – and to the point – statement.
“The Coens are visionary directors, masterful storytellers, and colorful linguists. We are thrilled for Netflix to become home to the full range of their talents,” said Cindy Holland, Vice President, Original Content for Netflix.
