While seeming blasphemous at first blush, FX has taken great pains to both nod to the Coen Brothers’ sublime original in its marketing while trying to prepare general audiences for its limited series take on “Fargo.” To further help confused viewers—and maybe to assuage the fears of fans of the original—the network has released a featurette to properly set-up the series’s point-of-view in relation to the 1996 film.

While seeming blasphemous at first blush, FX has taken great pains to both nod to the Coen Brothers’ sublime original in its marketing while trying to prepare general audiences for its limited series take on “Fargo.” To further help confused viewers—and maybe to assuage the fears of fans of the original—the network has released a featurette to properly set-up the series’s point-of-view in relation to the 1996 film.

The roughly two-minute-long featurette has the cast and crew of the TV series pitching the show as an expansion of the original film, taking place in the Coen Brothers universe but with entirely new characters and a new storyline. We’re still on the fence on this one but with the cast the show’s lined up, there’s a chance it may end up on the level as “Friday Night Lights” and “Hannibal” as TV spinoffs done right.

Starring Billy Bob Thornton, Martin Freeman, Allison Tolman, Bob Odenkirk, Colin HanksOliver Platt, Adam Goldberg and Kate Walsh (among others), the small screen take on “Fargo” will premiere on FX on April 15th. Watch the featurette below, along with 3 more promos and 12 new pics. [ComingSoon]
