Academy-award winning filmmaking duo Joel and Ethan Coen are working on a Western anthology series for Netflix called The Ballad of Buster Scruggs, the streaming giant announced.

The Coen brothers will write and direct the Western anthology, which is produced by Annapurna Television. The Ballad of Buster Scruggs will feature six tales about the American frontier, each chapter featuring a story about the American West.

“We are streaming motherfuckers!,” said Joel Coen and Ethan Coen.

The project will star Tim Blake Nelson (The Incredible Hulk, O Brother, Where Art Thou?), among others that have yet to be announced.

In addition to writing and directing, Joel and Ethan Coen will serve as executive producers of the anthology. Megan Ellison and Sue Naegle from Annapurna Television will also serve as executive producers, alongside longtime Coen Brothers collaborator Robert Graf.

“The Coens are visionary directors, masterful storytellers, and colorful linguists. We are thrilled for Netflix to become home to the full range of their talents,” said Cindy Holland, Vice President, Original Content for Netflix.

The Coen Brothers are known for Oscar award winning films Fargo and No Country for Old Men, as well as the 10-time Oscar-nominated film True Grit. 

The Ballad of Buster Scruggs will hit Netflix worldwide in 2018
