Beef, A Netflix and A24 collaboration
Beef is coming to Netflix on April 6, and it’s not about the meat of cattle; we are talking about the other meaning of the word. It stars talented stand-up comedian Ali Wong and Minari, Walking Dead, and Invincible star Steven Yeun.
Ali Wong has had many stand-up comedy specials on Netflix and also starred in the original movie “Always Be My Maybe”. Meanwhile, Steven Yeun starred in the Netflix movie “Okja” back in 2015. So both performers have had a relationship with Netflix before. A24 is known for making movies with plots never heard of before, and now they are trying to enter the world of television.
Lee Sung Jin, formerly known as Sonny Lee, created, wrote, produced, and directed the television series Beef. Lee Sung Jin is a prolific writer and producer who has worked on several notable television shows throughout his career.
He has worked as an executive producer on the hit television series “Undeclared,” as well as a writer and producer on “Freaks and Geeks,” “The Office,” “New Girl,” and “Master of None,” among others. Lee Sung Jin’s impressive track record in the television industry has earned him the respect of both peers and viewers.
Beef will have ten episodes available on the day of its release. It is a boy-meets-girl story, but not a romantic one. It is about two enemies who will try to destroy each other’s lives.
