The Coen brothers are executive-producing the show and it’s set to run for 10 episodes.

 

And now the 1996 movie is the basis for a new FX series that debuts tonight. While the Coen brothers’ film centered on a car salesman (William H. Macy) who decides to make a fortune by having his wife kidnapped and keeping part of the reward for himself, the TV version of “Fargo” focuses on a man named Lester Nygaard, an insurance salesman. Billy Bob Thornton stars as a drifter named Lorne Malvo who, according to FX, “meets and forever changes the life of [Lester].”

yeah I'm gonna check it out. I tried to get into that FX show about the bridge/mexican drug cartel or whatever but wasn't hooked after the first two episodes and kinda lost track of it.

I have only seen the movie a couple of times. I stopped watching good movies over and over, so they stay good. Star Wars puts me to sleep now. :(
