Netflix has ordered eight episodes of Brews Brothers, a new comedy series from brothers Greg Schaffer (That ’70s Show, Notes From the Underbelly, Lab Rats) and The League creator Jeff Schaffer, with Alan Aisenberg (Orange Is the New Black) and Mike Castle (House Guest, Clipped) set to star.
Written by Greg Schaffer, Brews Brothers follows estranged brothers, Wilhelm and Adam Rodman (Aisenberg and Castle) who find themselves running a brewery together. Each one is a beer genius — a braumeister — but they couldn’t be more different in their beer-making techniques and personalities. Carmen Flood and Marques Ray round out the cast as Sarah and Chuy, respectively.
Greg Schaffer serves as showrunner and executive produces with Jeff Schaffer, Jonathan Stern (Childrens Hospital, Wet Hot American Summer: First Day of Camp), and Keith Quinn (Rob Riggle’s Ski-Master Academy).
Greg Schaffer served as consulting producer on Lab Rats and supervising producer on That ’70s Show and Notes from the Underbelly.
Jeff Schaffer created The League and served as executive producer on Curb Your Enthusiasm.
Aisenberg recurred as Baxter “Gerber” Bailey on Orange Is the New Black and recently guest-starred on Bull and Blue Bloods.
Castle has guest-starred on LA to Vegas, American Dad and Grace and Frankie. He’s known for Action No. 1, Bad Advice from my Brother and Clipped.
