Joel and Ethan Coen are about to embark on a new adventure as they are set to write and direct their first TV series, an original project called The Ballad of Buster Scruggs. This is an event anthology series that is set in the Old West.
According to Variety, Annapurna Television "intends to pursue an innovative approach that could combine television and theatrical." There's no information on how that will all play out. At this time they will shoot it as a limited series because the story is too big and challenging to be covered in a single film. It sounds like they will be doing the same thing with it that is being done with Stephen King's The Dark Tower. Maybe the majority of the series will screen on TV and then the final two hours will be presented in movie form?
There are no story details to share regarding The Ballad of Buster Scruggs at this time, but it's said that it will intertwine six different story lines set in the Old West. I'm a huge fan of these filmmakers, and I love their movies, so I can't wait to see what they are planning!
