Netflix Orders Comedy Series ‘Brews Brothers’ from Schaffer Brothers

Netflix has put in an eight-episode order of “Brews Brothers,” a comedy series from creative sibling team Greg Schaffer and Jeff Schaffer.

The show follows estranged brothers Wilhelm and Adam Rodman, who wind up running a brewery together. According to Netflix, each is a “beer genius … but they couldn’t be more different in their beer-making techniques and personalities. A lot of times in a show you see two people who complete each other. These two don’t even make a full person.”

Alan Aisenberg and Mike Castle will play Wilhelm and Adam, respectively. Carmen Flood has been tapped to play Sarah, while Marques Ray will play Chuy.

Greg Schaffer of “That 70’s Show,” “Notes From the Underbelly” and “Lab Rats” will serve as showrunner, executive producer and writer.

“The League” creator Jeff Schaffer — of “Seinfeld,” “Curb Your Enthusiasm” and the upcoming Lil Dicky comedy series on FX — will executive produce alongside Jonathan Stern (“Childrens Hospital,” “Wet Hot American Summer: First Day of Camp,” “A Futile and Stupid Gesture”) and Keith Quinn (“Rob Riggle’s Ski-Master Academy,” “Driveshare,” “Running the Sahara”).
