Based on Joel and Ethan Coen’s Academy Award-winning film Fargo*, season one of the FX miniseres would find its own critical success when it gained the distinction of being the year’s most Emmy nominated miniseries**.
And this fall, the TV series will make its debut on Blu-ray in which it builds upon the original film in following a new case and new characters, all entrenched with the trademark humor, murder and “Minnesota nice” that made the Coen brothers film a classic.
Set to arrive on October 14th, 2014, the release will feature 1080p video, and include the following features:
● Audio Commentary on “The Crocodile’s Dilemma” featuring Executive Producer Noah Hawley and Billy Bob Thornton
● Audio Commentary on “Eating the Blame” featuring Executive Producer Noah Hawley and Billy Bob Thornton
● Audio Commentary on “The Heap” featuring Executive Producer Noah Hawley and Allison Tolman
● This is a True Story
● Greetings From Bemidji
● Shades of Green
● Deleted Scenes
* Fargo won Academy Awards for Best Original Screenplay (Joel and Ethan Coen) and Best Actress (Frances McDormand).
** FX’s Fargo was nominated for 18 Emmys, including Outstanding Miniseries, Outstanding Writing for a Miniseries or Movie for Executive Producer Noah Hawley, Outstanding Lead Actor nominations for Billy Bob Thornton and Martin Freeman, Outstanding Supporting Actor for Colin Hanks, Outstanding Supporting Actress for newcomer Allison Tolman, and two Outstanding Directing noms, one for Adam Bernstein and one for Colin Bucksey.
