Michael Ian Black (Stella), Joe Lo Truglio (Superbad), and Jonathan Stern (Children’s Hospital) are the wise guys behind Beef, an improv comedy from Paramount Digital Entertainment that centers on the legal and social issues that plague Lou the Butcher’s (Christopher Meloni) neighborhood.
From the trailer, Lou appears to be the judge and jury (if he’s the executioner, at least he knows how to cut the meat) of all the problems surrounding his butcher shop.
Beef premieres November 11 (11 pm est) on VOD platforms in North America. Retailers include iTunes, Vudu, TargetTicket, Dish, DirecTV, and Cablevision. For iTunes TV store users, the season pass runs for $9.99 if you want the Standard Definition version. If you want a higher resolution view of Lou and his neighbors, it’s $14.99 for HD.
Lizzy Caplan (Masters of Sex), Stephanie Beatriz (Brooklyn Nine-Nine), Michael Cera, Beth Dover, and Luke Cahill are among the guest stars for the Beef’s first season.
