FX is said to be currently in talks to adapt the Coen brothers’ black comedy Fargo into a television show.
The film, which was released in 1996, starred Frances McDormand, William H Macy and Steve Buscemi. It followed a pregnant Minneapolis police chief trying to solve a series of homicides.
The movie earned an Academy Award for ‘Best Screenplay’ and a ‘Best Actress’ award for McDormand.
According to Variety, the plan for the series is in early stages of production.
Joel and Ethan Coen had already signed on last year to produce HarveKarbo for Fox, a proposed series about a grouchy LA private detective. The project is still in development.
FX has enjoyed major success in the past year with new shows like Archer, Wilfred and the popular horror drama American Horror Story.
