Re: 'Fargo' TV series crime procedural in talks for FX channel

Series officially greenlit.
The FX entry will follow a new case and new characters, all entrenched in the trademark humor, murder and “Minnesota nice” that has made the film an enduring classic.
a 10-episode adaptation of the 1996 best picture Oscar nominee as a limited series during spring 2014.
The move comes as the network looks to push into limited series and mini-series fare, a bid to compete with premiere channel HBO and to fill a void left by the increasingly tentpole-focused film industry. To hear Landgraf tell it, there is a "huge opportunity" for content that falls between between those feature films and FX's long-running series, or "90-hour movies" as he often dubs them.
FX Orders 'Fargo' Limited Series from Noah Hawley, Coen Brothers
odd. 10 episodes not 12 or 13...
it sounds like The Killing...

Production on the effort from MGM Television and FX Productions is set to begin this fall.
just in time for that Western Canada snow...


The FX Movie Channel is also getting a serious facelift, borrowing a leaf or two from the HBO playbook: the 10-episode Fargo miniseries will air on that channel

Another cable channel with original TV series...
