A 'Fargo' TV Series? MGM & FX Can't be Serious

Luckily we won't see these fellas in a Fargo TV series

The Coen brothers have made many standalone movies that should never be touched in any way, shape or form.  No remakes of their popular cult films, no sequels to The Big Lebowski, etc.  Unfortunately, MGM and FX have other ideas in store for one of the brothers Best Picture nominated movies, Fargo.  The two sides are currently discussing whether to make, the definition of a stand alone movie in Fargo into a TV series to air on FX, according to Variety.  

With the success of the Teen Wolf series on MTV, MGM is thinking it could do the same with the quirky thriller that charmed us all back in 1996.  Apparently, they have more old movie titles lined up for TV adaptations too.  Whoopee!  Is nothing sacred?

The good news is the Coens will reportedly not be involved in this horrific idea.  My guess is the writers will simply reintroduce the funny North Dakota accent back into pop culture by centering the show around Marge Gunderson and her seemingly dimwitted, fellow police officers in Fargo.  Unless they're planning to remove Steve Buscemi from the wood chipper to lead the series.

I'm not sure how close to fruition this planned series is, but here's hoping it never sees the light of day, and I generally like FX shows.  

Would you like to see a Fargo TV series or should they just leave well enough alone?

While I am very happy with the shows FX has created I am not too sure I like the idea of this one. You are right this movie should be left alone just like the Big Lebowski.

I'm not thrilled with the idea either but in my opinion FX is one of only three networks that could pull a show like this off. The other two being AMC and HBO. But I agree with the overall point of it being left alone.
