For many, Sandra Oh will always be Christina Yang from 'Grey's Anatomy'. But the actress has made it clear she's moved away from the medical drama and onto bigger things. Aside from starring in the hit black comedy 'Killing Eve' - and winning a Primetime Emmy for her role, becoming the first Asian woman to win the award - Oh also loaned her voice to the phenomenal animated superhero series 'Invincible' and Disney's 'Raya and the Last Dragon', with more exciting projects on the way. Now she headlines another series, this time for Netflix, titled 'The Chair'.
According to the official plot synopsis from the streaming service: "'The Chair' follows Dr. Ji-Yoon Kim (Sandra Oh) as she navigates her new role as the Chair of the English department at prestigious Pembroke University.
"Ji-Yoon is faced with a unique set of challenges as the first woman to chair the department, and as one of the few staff members of color at the university."
'The Chair' also stars Jay Duplass as Professor Bill Dobson; Holland Taylor as Professor Joan Hambling; Bob Balaban as Professor Elliot Rentz; Nana Mensah as Professor Yaz McKay; David Morse as Dean Paul Larson; Everly Carganilla as Ju-Hee “Ju Ju” Kim; among others.
Actress Amanda Peet ('Dirty John') is the show's writer, showrunner and exec producer.
Other exec producers include Oh, as well as David Benioff and D.B. Weiss of 'Game of Thrones' fame.
Daniel Gray Longino directed all six 30-minute-long episodes.
'The Chair' debuts on Netflix on August 20th.
