Fargo TV show Gets Greenlight

Here we Fargo

FX channel has announced that a series based on the classic film Fargo is coming to the small screen.

Fans of the original will be delighted to know that the hour-long project will be executive produced by Joel and Ethan Coen, masterminds of the 1996 film, with Noah Hawley (My Generation, The Unusuals) co-producing and writing.

Execs will be hoping that the project is a success; an attempt at a TV version was originally made in 2003 (with Edie Falco as Marge) but failed to progress further than a pilot. Hopefully this version will be a (wood)chip off the old block.

It's expected that the character of Marge Gunderson will also take centre stage in the revamp.
