Fargo coming to SoHo

Sky have announced that the new series Fargo will be coming to SoHo.

SoHo, SKY’s premium drama channel, in association with MGM International Television Distribution Inc. (MGM), a subsidiary of MGM Holdings Inc., is excited to announce it will be bringing the highly-anticipated 10-episode limited series “Fargo” to its schedule in New Zealand in May.

Inspired by the classic feature film, with the same trademark humor – and murder, the series is an original adaptation by novelist/writer Noah Hawley (Bones, The Unusuals) and is executive produced by Hawley, Warren Littlefield (My Generation, past President, NBC Entertainment), Joel & Ethan Coen (No Country For Old Men, A Serious Man, True Grit), and Geyer Kosinski.

“Fargo” is produced by MGM Television and FX Productions for the FX Network in the U.S., with MGM Television acting as the lead studio and worldwide distributor of the series.

An original adaptation of the Academy Award®-winning feature film, “Fargo” features an all-new “true crime” story and follows a new case and new characters, all entrenched in the trademark humor, murder and “Minnesota nice” that made the film an enduring classic. Oscar® winner Billy Bob Thornton stars as “Lorne Malvo,” a rootless, manipulative man who meets and forever changes the life of small town insurance salesman “Lester Nygaard,” played by BAFTA Award® winner and Emmy®-nominated Martin Freeman. Colin Hanks plays Duluth Police Deputy “Gus Grimly,” a single dad who must choose between his own personal safety and his duty as a policeman when he comes face-to-face with a killer. Allison Tolman also stars as “Molly Solverson,” an ambitious Bemidji deputy.

Rounding out “Fargo’s” colorful cast of recurring characters will be Emmy® winner Bob Odenkirk as “Deputy Bill Oswalt,” Golden Globe™ and Emmy®-nominated Oliver Platt as “Stavros Milos,” Screen Actors Guild Award® winner Kate Walsh as “Gina Hess,” Glenn Howerton (It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia) as “Don Chumph,” Joey King as “Greta Grimly,” Peter Breitmayer as “Lieutenant Schmidt,” Tom Musgrave as “Bo Munk,” Josh Close as “Chazz Nygaard,” Russell Harvard as “Mr. Wrench,” Adam Goldberg as “Mr. Numbers,” Keegan-Michael Key as “Bill Budge”  and Jordan Peele as “Webb Pepper.”
