In the last few weeks, FX has aired a series of promos for Fargo, a miniseries based on Joel and Ethan Coen’s 1996 classic. While I was initially concerned, I’ve become more hopeful on the prospects of Fargo since the series has a strong cast (which includes Martin Freeman, Bob Odenkirk, Billy Bob Thornton, and Glenn Howerton), the Coens are executive producing and will provide much influence over the show’s direction, and FX is the perfect home for the series (if it’s anything like the movie, it will fit right in next to a show like Justified).
Fargo comes out on April 15th, and my anticipation has got me thinking about possible movies that could be made into a TV show or miniseries. I’d really like to see Mulholland Drive as a show to see what David Lynch’s original idea was like. And it’d be interesting if recent ensemble pictures (like A Separation or Computer Chess) were made into series. But what about you?
