Produced by Netflix and A24, the 10-episode series follows two strangers as they take road rage to new extremes. Yeun plays failing contractor Danny Cho, while Wong stars as successful businesswoman Amy Lau. After they have a brash road rage incident that they both refuse to back down from, they set out to get revenge as they seemingly fail to address their own frustrations with their lives.
Created and executive produced by Lee Sung Jin, who previously wrote for Dave and Tuca & Bertie among other shows, the cast of the series is rounded out by Joseph Lee, Young Mazino, David Choe, and Patti Yasutake. The recurring cast, meanwhile, includes Maria Bello, Ashley Park, Justin H. Min, Mia Serafino, Remy Holt, Andrew Santino, and Rek Lee. Yeun and Wong also serve as executive producers on the project alongside director Jake Schreier, who helmed six of its episodes.
“Ali Wong, Steven Yeun, A24 and Netflix. It’s a dream team, and I’m honored to be collaborating with them,” said Lee when the series was first announced. “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.”
Beef is scheduled to hit Netflix on April 6. Watch the trailer for Beef up top.
