After a failed attempt, 'Fargo' is finally coming to the small screen. The series is an adaptation of the award-winning film of the same name, written, produced and directed in 1996 by the Coen brothers. In 2006, Lorne Malvo (Billy Bob Thornton) arrives in Bemidji, Minnesota. There he exerts a great influence on Lester Nygaard (Martin Freeman), an insurance salesman. They connect from the first moment and Malvo confides many of his secrets to Nygaard, even proposing to him to murder Sam Hess, a high school bully who abused him as a teenager. One day Hess turns up dead and Nygaard tries to stay out of it.
