Channel 4 has acquired the UK rights to FX series, Fargo, based on the original 1996 Coen Brothers film...

Channel 4 has been out shopping for import drama and once again has returned home with what promises to be a great buy. FX's forthcoming TV series Fargo, executive produced by Joel and Ethan Coen and inspired by their 1996 crime film, will air on Channel 4 in the UK this spring.

The teaser promos released so far have been footage and dialogue-light, but undeniably share the original film's combination of macabre humour and small-town atmosphere. Though inspired by the film, Fargo the TV series introduces a new raft of characters and a brand new crime story.

Martin Freeman, Billy Bob Thornton, Colin Hanks, Bob Odenkirk and Allison Tolman all appear in the series, which has been written by Bones and The Unusuals' Noah Hawley.

We'll bring you a UK start date as soon as one is confirmed, but in the meantime, UK Fargo fans can set their alarms for 'springtime'.
