coen brothers

Netflix might be losing Disney, but it's gaining the Coen brothers. The critically-acclaimed siblings will give the streaming service the first TV series that's written, produced and directed by them.

'The Ballad of Buster Scruggs' is a six-part western anthology series, and will air sometime next year.

Each week will tell a different standalone story. It will star Tim Blake Nelson as Buster.

In a joint statement, the Coen brothers said: "We are streaming motherf*****s!"

And that's all.

Cindy Holland, Netflix's vice president of original content, said: "The Coens are visionary directors, masterful storytellers and colourful linguists. We are thrilled for Netflix to become home to the full range of their talents."

Tim Blake Nelson has worked with the Coens before. He played Delmar O'Donnell in 'O Brother Where Art Thou'.

The Coens are behind some of the most-lauded films in recent years, including 'The Big Lebowski', 'No Country for Old Men' and 'Fargo'.
