Fargo press pack


Oscar® winner Billy Bob Thornton (Sling Blade, A Simple Plan) 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 (The Hobbit Trilogy, Sherlock) in Fargo.

The 10-part series and original adaptation by novelist/writer Noah Hawley (Bones, The Unusuals) is inspired by the classic film from Joel & Ethan Coen – and airs exclusively in the UK on Channel 4.

Fargo follows an all-new “true crime” story that features a brand new case and new characters, all entrenched in the trademark humour, murder and “Minnesota nice” that has made the film an enduring classic.

Fargo launches on 20th April at 9pm on Channel 4.
