Premiere Of Universal Pictures' 'Hail, Caesar!' - Arrivals"We are streaming motherf-----s!" Joel and Ethan Coen declared in a press release announcing that their Western anthology, "The Ballad of Buster Scruggs," is coming to Netflix.

"Buster Scruggs" will run six episodes, with each episode telling a different story with a different cast about the American frontier. Characters include a singing cowboy, Oregon trail bosses, a high-plains drifter, and a prospector.

Tim Blake Nelson, who appeared in the Coens' 2000 movie "O Brother, Where Art Thou?," will play the title character. No other cast members were announced, but IMDB lists James Franco, Tyne Daly, Zoe Kazan, and Stephen Root.

It's the Coen brothers' first television project (FX's "Fargo" is an an adaptation of their classic movie by showrunner Noah Hawley).

The episodic anthology is becoming trendy again, with HBO recently premiering "Room 104" from brothers Jay and Mark Duplass. And Amazon has ordered "The Romanoffs" from "Mad Men" creator Matthew Weiner, following people who believe they are the descendants of the Romanov family.
