New HBO drama turns the lens on Stillwater
First Fargo, now Stillwater.
According to Deadline.com, Howie Deutch is directing and producing a new one-hour drama named after the riverfront tourist haven.
Deutch is best known for being the co-executive director of HBO's "True Blood."
According to the report, "'Stillwater' follows a New York City cop as his life spirals out of control when he relocates his family to a small town in Minnesota."
It also states that Colin Farrell has been identified as executive producer, which has spurred speculation that the Irish actor will star in the show. Hastings native Mark Steven Johnson has been mentioned as both executive producer and writer. Johnson wrote the scripts for both "Grumpy Old Men" and "Grumpier Old Men," the latter of which also was directed by Deutch.
