Check out the trailer for Fargo (FX), new black comedy series starring Martin Freeman

Martin Freeman in Fargo (2014)

A full trailer for FX’s upcoming series Fargo is here. The story seems to be different from the movie, but the visuals are very much trying to emulate the Coen Brothers. We’ll have to see the full series to determine if the creators have succeeded in that endeavor.

The trailer gives us a better look at Martin Freeman’s character, who is visibly drawn from William H. Macy’s character in the film. A middle-aged loser frustrated with his wife, who does something stupid in his attempt to break out of his cage.

Fargo will premiere on April 15th this year. It stars Billy Bob Thornton, Martin Freeman, Colin Hanks, Bob Odenkirk, Kate Walsh, Adam Goldberg, Oliver Platt, Glenn Howerton, and Key & Peele.
