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. And yet here we are!
According to Deadline, Joel and Ethan Coen are teaming up with Annapurna Television to make an anthology Western series called The Ballad of Buster Scruggs. I’m not sure how a title like that lends itself to an anthology format, but I’m sure it’ll be fun finding out.
Unfortunately, that’s about all we know at this time. But it’s enough! As much as people enjoy the Fargo TV show, just imagine how good it would be if the Coens were actually in charge of it. Now it appears something along those lines is going to happen and with a Western of all things. I can’t wait to hear more about this.
