Currently, we have little to no information about Cyberpunk Edgerunners, but they have mentioned that the story will be entirely original and it won't have big connections with the story of the game, except for the same setting.
The name of the series, Edgerunners, suggest that the story will revolve around Edgerunners Inc, a subdivision of StreeTemps, which describes itself as "a full-service organization dedicated to providing enterprising Edgerunners with high-quality temporary employment".
Cyberpunk Edgerunners is coming to Netflix in 2022.
