It appears as though MGM is in the mood to do nearly anything to get back on the right side of their finances.
After a much talked about bankruptcy case, the studio has gotten back in the film releasing game, but are looking to turn one of their critical sacred cows into one of their financial cash bovines.
Variety is reporting that MGM and FX are currently in talks to bring a television series based on the beloved Coen Brothers film, FARGO (the pair’s very best film, in this writer’s opinion), to the small screen. No other details have really been revealed, but we do know the film follows a detective in North Dakota, and all the weird things that happen in her wintery hometown.
As an admittedly huge fan of the film, and of FX’s recent TV output, I do have full faith in both parties involved here. I think this could be quite a wonderful expansion upon a great universe, and one that I can’t wait to check out.
