I just auditioned for this show. I had not heard about prior to this, but it sure looks good. It is loosely based upon the Coen brothers movie. That is, it has the same setting and style, but not the same story or characters.
I have read the script for the first episode and thought it was fantastic. If you are a fan of the movie "Fargo" you will certainly like this show (at least the first episode).
I cant/wont share any more details at the moment. Getting the role is a long shot, but I was just happy to get the call to audition!
