In 13 Reasons Why, Lawson will play a baseball coach. The 37-year-old Brisbane-born actor has a number of US credits to his name, including the recent drama Doubt, Bones and Modern Family. Netflix will air the second season in 2018.

Coens head west

The Coen brothers are moving into television, to develop a new series, The Ballad of Buster Scruggs, for Netflix. The series is described as a "western anthology" and the six one-hour episodes will contain six stories set in "the American frontier". The only connection between the episodes will be the character of Buster Scruggs, played by Tim Blake Nelson. "We are streaming motherf--kers," the Coens said in a statement. Netflix's vice-president of original content Cindy Holland described the Coens as "visionary directors, masterful storytellers, and colourful linguists." The series will air in 2018.

Feast of forensics

Filming is under way in Queensland for the new ABC drama Harrow. The project, steered by Brisbane-headquartered production company Hoodlum, stars Welsh star Ioan Gruffudd as a forensic pathologist. The ABC has commissioned 10 one-hour episodes of the series; written by Stephen M. Irwin, directed by Kate Dennis, Tony Krawitz, Tony Tilse and Peter Salmon and produced by Irwin, Leigh McGrath, Tracey Robertson and Nathan Mayfield. The show's cast also includes Remi Hii, Anna Lise Phillips, Ella Newton and Robyn Malcolm. No air date has been set.

Letterman in new series

Talk show legend David Letterman has been lured out of semi-retirement and will host a new series on the streaming platform Netflix. Six one-hour episodes of the as-yet-untitled series have been commissioned; in each episode Letterman will sit down to talk with a single guest, and also film several pre-taped segments on the road. Letterman said he was "excited and lucky to be working on this project." Netflix's chief content officer Ted Sarandos described the 70-year-old star as "a true television icon." The planned series will air in 2018.
