Netflix’s latest sitcom, The Chair, starring former Grey’s Anatomy and Killing Eve star Sandra Oh has received its first trailer following the teaser released at the start of the month.
The six-episode comedy series from Game of Thrones bosses DB Weiss and David Benioff and co-starring actress Amanda Peet, follows Dr Ji-Yoon Kim (Sandra Oh), the first person of colour to chair the English department at the fictional Pembroke University. Though problems arise for Dr Ji-Yoon Kim when she begins to wonder if she’s been employed to take the fall when her administration is immediately embroiled in controversy. This is complicated when Ji-Yoon Kim becomes romantically entangled with the controversial subject in question.
The Chair’s impressive ensemble cast also includes Two and a Half Men’s Holland Taylor, Bob Balaban from The Politician, Nana Mensah from 13 Reasons Why and Escape at Dannemora’s David Morse.
Coming off the back of the highly successful Killing Eve, gripping critics and audiences worldwide, Sandra Oh is at the very top of her game having been nominated for several Emmy awards working alongside Emmy-award-winner Jodie Comer. The action, drama from BBC must’ve been a hotbed of creativity behind the scenes, with Comer looking back fondly on her time with Sandra Oh, commenting, “What’s incredible is sometimes you get to set and you can act with people and it can work well and it can be great and then sometimes, a handful of times, you can meet someone and there is so much that goes unsaid”.
The two actresses return to collaborate once more on the fourth and final series of Killing Eve which is set for release in 2022.
Sandra Oh is also lending her voice acting to Pixar’s latest childhood drama, Turning Red where she’ll bring the character of a mother putting too much pressure on her young daughter, to life. Turning Red will be released in cinemas on March 11, 2022.
