April may bring showers that eventually bring May flowers, but something else is blooming on FX that plenty of people will likely be getting into. Starting April 15th, the Coen brothers and FX are going to kick off a 10-episode miniseries based on the Acamdey Award winning film Fargo which has a huge cast of talented stars.
We’ve seen still photos from the series and we’ve seen weird mini-trailers, but we have finally be given the first full trailer for the film thanks to FX.
Here’s our best look yet at the upcoming Fargo miniseries:
Here’s a quick synopsis of what Fargo will be about:
An original adaptation of the Academy Award®-winning feature film, Fargo features an all-new “true crime” story and follows a new case and new characters, all entrenched in the trademark humor, murder and “Minnesota nice” that made the film an enduring classic. Oscar® winner Billy Bob Thornton stars as “Lorne Malvo,” a rootless, manipulative man who meets and forever changes the life of small town insurance salesman “Lester Nygaard,” played by BAFTA Award® winner and Emmy®-nominated Martin Freeman. Colin Hanks plays Duluth Police Deputy “Gus Grimly,” a single dad who must choose between his own personal safety and his duty as a policeman when he comes face-to-face with a killer. Allison Tolman also stars as “Molly Solverson,” an ambitious Bemidji deputy.
Fargo will premiere the first of its ten-episodes on April 15th.
