Epix has renewed its drama Get Shorty, starring Ray Romano and Chris O’Dowd, for a second season.
Season 1, Episode 1 – Very reminiscent of another film involving violent crime juxtaposed with deadpan humor that became a hit series (*cough*Fargo*cough), Get Shorty is entertaining but needs to make itself distinct to truly rise above in the Golden Age of TV.
The Office star Jenna Fischer is set to headline an ABC comedy pilot and a Syfy star is moving to Fox for Bryan Singer’s Marvel pilot.
Epix’s scripted series Get Shorty has tapped Ray Romano and Chris O’Dowd to star. The series is based on the 1995 film of the same name starring John Travolta and Gene Hackman, and novel by Elmore Leonard.
