People can have a range of emotions on the road because driving can be a very complex experience. For some, the idea of getting behind the wheel of a vehicle and driving can be relaxing and a great way to take your mind off things. Then there are those who get angry while on the road from any minor inconvenience like someone cutting them off or driving insanely slowly.

The new Netflix comedy-drama series Beef tells a 10-episode story of what happens when a single road rage incident can spiral out of control. Created by Lee Sung Jin, Beef premiered on the streaming service on Thursday, April 6 and stars Steven Yeun and Ali Wong as Danny Cho and Amy Lau, a struggling contractor and unfulfilled entrepreneur, respectively, who get into a minor vehicle incident that spirals into a feud of revenge.

Maria Bello, Mia Serafino, Ashley Park, Joseph Lee, Young Mazino, David Choe, Remy Holt, Patti Yasutake, Ione Skye, Andrew Santino, Justin H. Min, and Rekstizzy also appear in Beef.
