The Coen Brothers Are Making Their Official Foray Into TV

The Coens are working on a western-themed minseries titled The Ballad of Buster Scruggs along with American Hustle prodco Annapurna Pictures TV arm, which former HBO programming chief Sue Naegle leads.

In addition to writing and directing, they'll also produce through their Mike Zoss Productions label.

The Coen brothers also serve as executive producers on Fargo, the television adaptation of the brothers' Oscar-winning 1996 film of the same name.

True Grit and No Country for Old Men were obviously both major successes for the Coen brothers.

Big directors making a break for television is nothing new, but I never thought I'd see a day where the Coen Brothers get in on it. This is to be a limited series, spanning only six episodes. Fellow Jewish auteur Woody Allen released his first TV series on Amazon Studios to a tepid reception last fall.
