Sandra Oh and Amanda Peet are teaming up for The Chair, a new series for Netflix.
Oh, who is known for her work in Grey’s Anatomy and Sideways, has more recently made history with her Golden Globe-winning turn in Killing Eve.
Amanda Peet was most recently seen in The Romanoffs and Brockmire and previously starred in Aaron Sorkin’s Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip. But she is also a talent behind the camera, writing the play The Commons of Pensacola, which starred Blythe Danner and Sarah Jessica Parker, and recently debuting her play Our Very Own Carlin McCullough at The Geffen Playhouse in Los Angeles.
Peet will write and executive produce the series, with Annie Julia Wyman co-writing the pilot. Oh will exec-produce and also star, with Jay Duplass (Transparent, Outside In) co-starring.
The half hour dramedy is centered on the Chair of an English department at a major university.
David Benioff, D.B. Weiss and Bernie Caulfield are also on board as executive producers.
Netflix has ordered six episodes.
