Sandra Oh is heading to Netflix this August in the darkly comic drama The Chair, and a trailer gives us a first look at her in action.
The Chair follows Dr Ji-Yoon Kim (Sandra Oh) as she navigates her new role as the Chair of the English department at prestigious Pembroke University. Ji-Yoon is faced with a unique set of challenges as the first woman to chair the department, and as one of the few staff members of color at the university.
Amanda Peet writes and exec-produces the series, with Oh also serving as an exec-producer. In front of the camera, Oh is joined by Jay Duplass, Holland Taylor, Bob Balaban, Nana Mensah, David Morse, and Everly Carganilla. You can see them in action on 20th August, when The Chair premieres on Netflix. Here’s the trailer:
