    FX Developing Charlie Kaufman-Penned Series 'How & Why,' Greenlit Coen Brothers-Produced 'Fargo' Series

    While the name HBO has become synonymous with quality television, the last few years have seen rival network FX catch up in a big way. The network might only be on basic cable, and it might air the terrible Charlie Sheen vehicle "Anger Management," but in "Justified," "Archer" and "The Americans," i...

    5 Things You Should Know About The Making Of 'No Country For Old Men'

    Review: Coen-Derived Caper Comedy 'Gambit' Features A Game Colin Firth, But That's About It

    Of all the genres to try and pull off, the romantic caper flick -- think "To Catch A Thief," or "Charade," or even "Ocean's Eleven" -- is one of the trickiest. For such a film to work out, it's got to be as light as a feather and feel entirely effortless, and all too many films aiming to hit that sw...

    FX Confirmed To Bring 'Fargo' Series To TV, Coen Brothers To Executive Produce

    Joel & Ethan Coen Team With 'Cedar Rapids' Writer Phil Johnston For Fox TV Show 'HarveKarbo'

    No, We Don't Understand What's Going On Either The Coen Brothers have always delighted in evading expectations. Enjoy our dark film noir debut "Blood Simple?" Why not try our live-action Looney Tunes follow-up "Raising Arizona." Impressed by our multi-Oscar-nominated "Fargo?" Here's a stoner detective movie about bowling and German porn stars! We've finally reached mainstream success after the Best Picture-winning "No Country For Old Men" and the star-studded "Burn After Reading?" Let's make a dense, oblique Jewish period piece without a single recognizable face...
