Steven Yeun and Ali Wong are going to star in a series together.
The duo will lead and executive-produce Beef, a 10-episode dramedy from A24 (Ramy, Euphoria), which is headed to Netflix. Further details about the plot are still under wraps, but we do know that the episodes will each be 30 minutes long. Here’s what else we know so far.
It’s about a road rage incident.
Netflix announced that Beef “follows two people who let a road rage incident burrow into their minds and slowly consume their every thought and action.”
Lee Sung Jin is serving as showrunner, writer, and producer. He’s a co-executive producer on Dave, the FX comedy series starring rapper Lil Dicky. His past credits include Silicon Valley and Tuca & Bertie.
“Ali Wong, Steven Yeun, A24 and Netflix—it’s a dream team, and I’m honored to be collaborating with them,” he said in a statement to Deadline. “I’m also grateful to the guy who yelled at me in traffic three years ago. I did not let it go, and now we have a show.”
Jinny Howe, Netflix’s VP of original series drama development teased, “Sung Jin has created a bold and at times outrageous world. It is an honest and powerful character study of two people who go about searching for connection in the unlikeliest of ways.”

Beef is still in its early stages. The series was just pitched earlier in March, according to Deadline, and attracted a handful of big-time bidders, including Amazon, FX, and Apple. Netflix obviously prevailed in the auction, committing to a series order.
Yeun and Wong have worked together before.
The upcoming project marks a reunion for the duo, who lent their voices to Netflix’s animated series Tuca & Bertie, for which they played adorable bird couple Bertie and Speckle.
The series news comes fresh off Yeun’s history-making Oscar nomination for his lead role in Lee Isaac Chung‘s Minari. With the nod, he becomes the first Asian-American nominated in the Best Actor category. This marks his big return to TV after starring in AMC’s The Walking Dead for six seasons until 2016.
Wong currently stars on the ABC sitcom American Housewife; other recent credits include Big Mouth, Birds of Prey, and the rom-com Always Be My Maybe, in which she costars with Randall Park. Before her hit Netflix comedy specials, Baby Cobra and Hard-Knock Wife, she was a writer on ABC’s Fresh Off the Boat.
