Fargo Creator Noah Hawley Talks Alien Miniseries He Pitched to FX During an interview with Observer, Emmy winner and Fargo series creator Noah Hawley discussed the Alien miniseries he had pitched to FX in 2019, with a specific focus on the “human drama.” RELATED: Fargo Season 4 First Look Dives Deeper Into the 1950s Set Story “Alien is on some level the complete opposite of Star Trek,” Hawley told the outlet. “It’s sort of about humanity at its worst. There’s this moment in the second film when Sigourney says, ‘I don’t know which species is worse. At least they don’t screw each other over for a percentage.’ If you look at what Aliens tends to be, it’s usually a trapped story – trapped in a ship, trapped in a prison, etc. And because the Alien has this life cycle to it, where it goes from egg, to chestburster, to xenomorph, there becomes a certain routine to it.” “I thought it would be interesting if you could expand,” he continued. “If you’re going to make something for television, you’ve got 10 hours let’s say. Even if you have a lot of action, like two hours, then you’re still going to have eight hours left. So what is the show about? That’s what I tried to talk to them about. As I did with Legion, the exercise is: Let’s take the superhero stuff out of the show and see if it’s still a great show. What’s the show about? Let’s take the Alien out of the show. What’s the show about? What are the themes, who are the characters and what is the human drama? Then we drop the aliens back in and we go, ‘This is great. Not only is there great human drama, but there’s aliens!’” RELATED: Black Narcissus Trailer Sets November Premiere for New FX Miniseries What do you think about Hawley’s idea for a new miniseries set within the Alien universe?

Mandatory Streamers: Fargo Returns For a New Story Set in the 1950s Welcome to Mandatory Streamers, our column covering the best new streaming content coming your way every week! For the week of September 21, Fargo returns with a new installment in the Golden Globe and Emmy winning anthology series led by Chris Rock and set in the 1950s. Check out the best shows debuting and returning online this week as well as the latest renewal announcements below, and be sure to visit our mother site Mandatory by clicking here! FX Fargo, Season 4 Premiere: In 1950, at the end of two great American migrations — that of Southern Europeans from countries like Italy, who came to the US at the turn of the last century and settled in northern cities like New York, Chicago — and African Americans who left the south in great numbers to escape Jim Crow and moved to those same cities — you saw a collision of outsiders, all fighting for a piece of the American dream. In Kansas City, Missouri, two criminal syndicates have struck an uneasy peace. One Italian, one African American. Together they control an alternate economy – that of exploitation, graft, and drugs. This too is the history of America. To cement their peace, the heads of both families have traded their eldest sons. Emmy winner Chris Rock plays the head of one family, a man who — in order to prosper — has surrendered his oldest boy to his enemy, and who must, in turn, raise his son’s enemy as his own. It’s an uneasy peace, but profitable. And then the head of the Kansas City mafia goes into the hospital for routine surgery and dies. And everything changes. It’s a story of immigration and assimilation and the things we do for money. And as always, a story of basically decent people who are probably in over their heads. You know, Fargo. Award-winning creator, showrunner, writer, and director Noah Hawley returns for the new season, along with Joel & Ethan Coen, Warren Littlefield, and John Cameron returning as executive producers. The new installment in the anthology series will debut on Sunday, September 27, and will be available to stream on FX on Hulu.
