Fargo TV trailer

Fargo, the series, follows in the footsteps of Fargo, the movie, with the blessing of Ethan and Joel Coen. This isn’t a strict remake, but rather a new “true crime” story that is very much in the vein of the Coen Brothers movie, and which shares the same Minnesota setting and collection of friendly/quirky accents. That said, this new trailer shows that Martin Freeman seems to be doing his darndest to channel William H. Macy’s performance.

Some of the rest of the cast (which includes Billy Bob Thornton, Allison TolmanColin HanksBob OdenkirkKate WalshAdam GoldbergOliver PlattGlenn HowertonJordan PeeleKeegan-Michael KeyJoey King, and Julie Ann Emery) also has their own Coen debt to pay. Whether this will end up being able to stand on its own two feet is open to question now, but this trailer is entertaining enough that we’ll be watching the first episodes of the 10-episode series on FX.
