FX has always taken fun and different approaches to promoting their series and that includes Noah Hawley's upcoming Fargo drama. Among the latest videos to make their way online are these two teasers, which are very brief but do a pretty great job of teasing the dark humor we might expect from this series. The above one has Martin Freeman making a phone call from the trunk of his own car, and the one below has Oliver Platt talking about buckets (of blood). In total, the videos only amount to 25 seconds of footage, but they're well worth every one.
The other two videos take a docu-style look at the community of Fargo. This one focuses on Fargo's law enforcement and crime solving...
"Let me get these turkeys on the road," the cop says, before shooing some actual turkeys out of the road.
Fargo is apparently a town where a person can be found frozen solid and stuck between the road and the underside of their vehicle. That's oddly horrifying. But cold weather's kind of a nightmare like that. It certainly presents its own special challenges, and I expect that to factor in to this series.
And then there are the nice people. That's the focus of this video...
Of course, not everyone is nice. We know that part of this series involves Martin Freeman's Lester being pushed around by people.
Fargo is an original adaptation of the 1996 Coen Brothers movie, and centers on a new "true crime" story, as Billy Bob Thornton's "rootless, manipulative" character Lorn Malvo arrives in town and crosses paths with Martin Freeman's Lester Nygaard. Among the rest of the cast are Colin Hanks, Allison Tolman and Bob Odenkirk, who play the local law enforcers. Fargo also stars Kate Walsh, Glenn Howerton, Joey King, Peter Breitmayer and Tom Musgrave.
Fargo premieres Tuesday, April 15 at 10:00 p.m. ET on FX.
