FX has adapted the Cohen brother’s oscar-winning Fargo for the small screen.

The new series kicks off on April 15, and stars Billy Bob Thornton, Martin Freeman (rocking a Minnesota accent),  Allison Tolman, Bob Odenkirk, Colin Hanks, Keith Carradine, Adam Goldberg, Russell Harvard, Oliver Platt, Kate Walsh and Joey King.

Following (but not too strictly) the themes of the original movie, Fargo sees a ruthless, manipulative man (Billy Bob Thornton) meeting a small town insurance salesman (Martin Freeman) by chance, and setting him on a path of destruction.

We’ve got a promo trailer plus the first seven minutes of the pilot episode to share with you below.

Fargo, we’re quietly impressed.
