Noah Hawley, writer and producer for “Bones,” “The Unusuals” and “My Generation,” will write the project and also executive-produce. Former NBC Entertainment executive Warren Littlefield, an executive producer on “My Generation,” is on board to produce.
The Coen brothers’ upcoming projects include the drama “Inside Llewyn Davis” and the detective comedy “Harve Karbo,” which has been purchased by Fox.
