“Beef” is an upcoming comedy web series starring Christopher Meloni as a local butcher who also serves as the judge, jury, and executioner (so to speak) of his local neighborhood — he’s the one everyone comes to when they need a problem that needs resolving.
Check it out:
From Paramount Digital Entertainment (“Burning Love,” “The Hotwives of Orlando”), the series will debut across digital retail and VOD platforms — including, but not limited to, iTunes, Vudu, and Target Ticket — on November 11.
Creatively, the series is straight out of the “Burning Love” playbook. During its run, it will feature a who’s who of actors you recognize from current and past comedy movies and TV shows, including lead stars Meloni (“Wet Hot American Summer”) and Joe Lo Truglio (“Brooklyn Nine-Nine”), and guest stars Lizzy Caplan (“Masters of Sex”), Stephanie Beatriz (“Brooklyn Nine-Nine”), and Michael Cera (“Superbad”).
Other cast members include Michael Blaiklock, James Pumphrey, and Angela Trimbur.
The series was created by Michael Ian Black (“Stella,” “Burning Love”), Lo Truglio, and Jonathan Stern (“Children’s Hospital,” “Burning Love”).
