FX Productions and MGM Television are developing an hour-long comedic crime drama based on Joel and Ethan Coen's 1996 black comedy classic "Fargo" reports Deadline.

The original starred Frances McDormand as a pregnant Minnesota police chief who follows the trail of two bumbling criminals (Steve Buscemi, Peter Stormare) hired by a car salesman (William H. Macy) to kidnap his wife.

The Coens will serve as executive producers alongside "The Unusuals" and "My Generation" creator Noah Hawley who is also writing.

MGM previously attempted a "Fargo" TV adaptation, without the Coens involvement, back in 2003 with Edie Falco starring. »
