FX and the Coen Brothers Will Do a ‘Fargo’ TV Series

Posted by at 1:40 pm on September 25, 2012

The writer/directors known as the Coen brothers have made a deal with FX to develop a TV series loosely based on their Oscar-winning 1996 film “Fargo,” with Noah Hawley (Bones, The Unusuals) on board to write and executive-produce. The “No Country for Old Men” filmmakers will also serve as executive-producers on the hour-long drama, which is a co-production of FX and MGM Television.

The news was broken by Deadline.

MGM first attempted a Fargo TV series back in 1997 with Edie Falco in the lead role, though that project was done without the Coens’ participation and it never moved past the pilot stage.

Fargo starred Frances McDormand as a pregnant police officer who attempts to unravel a deadly small-town kidnapping scheme. The film won Oscars for Best Actress (McDormand) and Best Original Screenplay
