Joel and Ethan Coen have signed on with FX to adapt their 1996 hit comedic crime drama Fargo for the small screen, Deadline reports. The Coen brothers will executive produce, with My Generation and The Unusuals creator Noah Hawley on board as writer and executive producer and Warren Littlefield also set as executive producer. FX Productions and MGM Television will co-produce the show.

Fargo follows a pregnant police chief in Minnesota who tracks two incompetent criminals hired by a car salesman to kidnap his wife. It was nominated for seven Academy Awards, winning for Best Actress (Frances McDormand) and Best Original Screenplay.
