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?"
There's no word yet on how it when and where it will air.
It's popping up all over the place.
No, we said popping not ... nevermind.
Wine, cats, coffee — what more could you ask for?
A Georgia driver hit more than a bump in the road while driving.
Elysia Morris said she was driving her red BMW through a construction zone when a truck was driving toward her without stopping.
She said she veered to the left to avoid a possible collision when her car got stuck in fresh, wet concrete.
"[The truck is] still driving towards me, still honking the horn, so I bear over to the left and my car ends up submerged in fresh, wet concrete," Morris said.
Morris was rescued safely, but her car was lodged deep into the mixture.
She said the construction company told her the concrete would cure in an hour and the tow truck that responded asked her to sign a waiver saying the county wasn't responsible for any damages before they would tow it.
She refused to sign, and they left the concrete to dry around her car, cementing it into the street.
Construction workers eventually used a jack hammer to remove the block of concrete and the car and loaded it onto a flatbed truck.
Condolences are pouring in from all over ... for a girl they never knew. But her story speaks to all of them.
