Fans of the 1996 Coen Brothers’ classic Fargo may be interested to know that FX is looking at the property for translation into a TV series. While reports indicate that the talks between the network and MGM Television are in their infancy, MGM is on the lookout for opportunities to turn their extensive list of properties (for example, Teen Wolf) into programs for the small screen. Variety reports that there is no certainty of a deal at this time and it is unclear whether or not the interested parties have a scribe in mind to recreate the Coen Brothers’ black humor that worked well enough to earn them an Oscar the first time around.

Hit the jump to see how FX’s American Horror Story is hoping to bring home an Emmy.

In other news from the network, FX’s American Horror Story will be entering into Emmy consideration under the category of “miniseries.” The horror anthology, which will be begin airing its second season this fall, increases its chances at winning some hardware as it avoids heavy hitters Downton Abbey and Breaking Bad by removing itself from the drama category. Deadline reports that American Horror Story can be considered a miniseries/limited series due to its anthology format which introduces new storylines, characters and casts each season.
