Set to premiere April 15, FX's new series "Fargo" has its first teaser, and it features Billy Bob Thornton. Intriguing and oblique? You betcha!

Executive produced by the Coen Brothers, who penned and directed the 1996 black comedy starring Frances McDormand -- who won an Oscar for her performance as a scrappy and rather pregnant cop in small town Minnesota -- the series will expand on the mythology of the film across a ten-episode season. It will be a limited run a la "True Detective" or FX's own "American Horror Story."

The series stars Tom Musgrave, Liam Green and Julie Anne Emery. The Coen brothers have writing credits on the first three episodes.
