Coen Brothers to write, direct first TV series
Television just got a little bit better.
Joel and Ethan Coen, celebrated auteurs of the silver screen, are planning to write and direct their first television series, Variety reports.
The limited series, "The Ballad of Buster Scruggs," will be an anthology set in the Old West.
Annapurna Television is teaming with the Coen brothers on the project, which will be shot as a miniseries.
"We are very excited to be working with Megan and Sue on this project," the Coen brothers told Variety.
Variety reports "Buster Scruggs" is an original idea from the brothers, but was too complicated to be filmed as a movie. Sources tell Variety that the series will follow six different story lines.
The Coen Brothers' works include "Raising Arizona," "The Hudsucker Proxy," "Fargo," "The Big Lebowski," "No Country for Old Men" and "O Brother, Where Art Thou?"
