BEVERLY HILLS, Calif., March 20, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Netflix, Inc. (NASDAQ:NFLX) in association with MGM International Television Distribution Inc. (MGM), a division of MGM Holdings Inc., today announced that episodes of Fargo , the hotly-anticipated 10-episode limited series based on the Academy Award ® winning classic feature film, will be available exclusively to Netflix members in the Netherlands to watch instantly, beginning April 16.  New hour-long episodes of Fargo will arrive on Netflix Netherlands weekly, within 24 hours of the U.S. broadcast on FX.

FARGO COMING EXCLUSIVELY TO NETFLIX IN THE NETHERLANDS BEGINNING APRIL 16

Inspired by the classic feature film, with the same trademark humor - and murder, the series is an original adaptation by novelist/writer Noah Hawley ( Bones, The Unusuals) and is executive produced by Hawley, Warren Littlefield ( My Generation, past President, NBC Entertainment), Joel & Ethan Coen ( No Country For Old Men, A Serious Man, True Grit), and Geyer Kosinski.

Fargo is produced by MGM Television and FX Productions for the FX Network in the U.S., with MGM Television acting as the lead studio and worldwide distributor of the series.

An original adaptation of the Academy Award ®-winning feature film, Fargo features an all-new "true crime" story and follows a new case and new characters, all entrenched in the trademark humor, murder and " Minnesota nice" that made the film an enduring classic. Oscar ® winner Billy Bob Thornton stars as " Lorne Malvo," a rootless, manipulative man who meets and forever changes the life of small town insurance salesman " Lester Nygaard," played by BAFTA Award ® winner and Emmy ®-nominated Martin Freeman. Colin Hanks plays Duluth Police Deputy " Gus Grimly," a single dad who must choose between his own personal safety and his duty as a policeman when he comes face-to-face with a killer.  Allison Tolman also stars as " Molly Solverson," an ambitious Bemidji deputy.

Rounding out Fargo 's colorful cast of recurring characters will be Emmy ® winner Bob Odenkirk as "Deputy Bill Oswalt," Golden Globeā„¢ and Emmy ®-nominated Oliver Platt as " Stavros Milos," Screen Actors Guild Award ® winner Kate Walsh as " Gina Hess," Glenn Howerton ( It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia ) as "Don Chumph," Joey King as "Greta Grimly," Peter Breitmayer as "Lieutenant Schmidt,"  Tom Musgrave as " Bo Munk," Josh Close as " Chazz Nygaard," Russell Harvard  as "Mr. Wrench," Adam Goldberg as "Mr. Numbers," Keegan-Michael Key as " Bill Budge" and Jordan Peele as "Webb Pepper."

"We're excited to bring Fargo to our Dutch members as a first-run exclusive series, immediately following its U.S. debut," said Ted Sarandos, Chief Content Officer at Netflix. "This fresh interpretation of the dark comedy coupled with a talented cast makes for fantastic serialized television that our members are going to love."

" Fargo is an exceptional series with world-class talent both in front of and behind the camera," said Chris Ottinger, President, International Television Distribution and Acquisitions, MGM. "We are delighted to be partnering with Netflix to bring Fargo to a new audience in the Netherlands."

In the continued effort to make great programming available faster, Fargo is only the latest exclusive series Netflix has brought to its members in the Netherlands. Since launching the service in September, Netflix has delighted the Dutch with Pretty Little Liars, The White Queen, and From Dusk Till Dawn: A Netflix Original Series.
