FX Confirmed To Bring 'Fargo' Series To TV, Coen Brothers To Executive Produce
It seems in their attempt to get themselves out of bankruptcy, and use their back catalog for everything its worth, MGM holds nothing sacred. The studio has struck a deal with FX to create a dramatic series based on the Coen Brothers’ seminal 1996 film “Fargo.” Reports of a television adaptation first began in March, and while we didn’t think any of the original cast or crew would be involved, Deadline is reporting that the Academy Award-winning sibling duo will executive produce. That’s not to say they’ll be directly involved -- we’d imagine that the positions are largely ceremonial anyway -- as Noah Hawley (“The Unusuals," “My Generation”) will be writing the project.
