He said, “I don’t think anyone will write about Minnesota in the same way again after the events of the last couple of years.” He also added, “It’s definitely not going back to ‘Oh look at these jolly, carefree white folk in their small towns’.”
For the unversed, the series was created by Noah Hawley, who is also the director and the executive producer. This show is based on Joel and Ethan Coen’s written and directed film of the same name.
