Sandra Oh Joins Netflix’s The Chair, Plus a New Killing Eve Tease

-

Netflix today announced The Chair, a new six-episode, half-hour dramedy centered around the Chair of an English department at a major university. Golden Globe Award-winning actress Sandra Oh (Killing Eve, Grey’s Anatomy) will star. Jay Duplass (Transparent, Outside In) will co-star in the series.

The Chair comes from writer, showrunner and executive producer Amanda Peet (The Commons of Pensacola for the Manhattan Theatre Club, Our Very Own Carlin McCullough for The Geffen Playhouse).

The executive producers include David Benioff, D.B. Weiss and Bernie Caulfield. Annie Julia Wyman co-wrote the pilot.

In related news, BBC AMERICA has debuted a new short teaser for Killing Eve Season 3 which you can watch below and features Sandra Oh’s Eve Polastri.

The network renewed the series for a fourth season last month, well ahead of season three premiering April 26th on BBC AMERICA and AMC. Season four of Killing Eve, written and executive produced by Laura Neal, will go into production later this year.

In addition to Oh, Killing Eve stars Emmy and BAFTA winner Jodie Comer, Emmy nominee and BAFTA winner Fiona Shaw and BAFTA nominee Kim Bodnia. Killing Eve is based on the Codename Villanelle novellas by Luke Jennings.

The third season continues the story of two women with brutal pasts, addicted to each other but now trying desperately to live their lives without their drug of choice.

For Villanelle, the assassin without a job, Eve is dead. For Eve, the ex-MI6 operative hiding in plain sight, Villanelle will never find her. All seems fine until a shocking and personal death sets them on a collision course yet again. The journey back to each other will cost both of them friends, family, and allegiances… and perhaps a share of their souls.

Eve (Oh) has survived being shot by Villanelle (Comer) in Rome, but her current status with MI6 remains unknown after being manipulated by Carolyn (Shaw) in the events of last season’s finale. And it’s clear that Villanelle continues to never miss an opportunity to dress up for the job.

Executive producers for the upcoming season are Sally Woodward Gentle, Lee Morris, Phoebe Waller-Bridge, Gina Mingacci, Damon Thomas, Jeff Melvoin, Suzanne Heathcote and Sandra Oh.

  1. I love the idea of a story based around the University. This sounds really intriguing. Having Sandra Oh in this show is very promising. Also, for Sandra Oh to sign on to this project and become an executive producer to it does send a signal that this show has a lot of potential. In other words, it looks like we may have a hit on our hands here.

    Having Benioff & Weiss on this project is an absolute great thing. It’s a good time to be a Netflix subscriber these days. Thank goodness I am one.
