Netflix has won an auction for rights to produce the ten-episode half-hour dramedy series “Beef” from A24.
The project marks Oscar-nominated “Minari” and “Burning” star Steven Yeun’s first episodic TV foray since exiting “The Walking Dead”.
The story follows two people who let a road rage incident burrow into their minds and slowly consume their every thought and action.
Comedian/actress Ali Wong (“Birds of Prey,” “Always Be My Maybe”) will co-star in the series created and showrun by Lee Sung Jin (“Undone,” “Tuca & Bertie,” “Dave”). Wong and Yeun will both executive produce.
