The Hollywood Reporter says Joel and Ethan Coen are ready to executive produce a series on FX based on their critically acclaimed 1996 film, Fargo. The filmmaking brothers will be working with writer Noah Hawley (My Generation) in adapting Fargo for the small screen.
Fargo starred Frances McDormand, Steve Buscemi, William H Macy, and Peter Stormare and was set in Fargo, North Dakota. The dark comedy followed McDormand as a police chief investigating a botched kidnapping. The film earned seven Oscar nominations, winning in the Best Actress and Best Original Screenplay categories.
A Fargo series? This is a film-to-TV adaptation that might actually work, if the Coens remained involved.
