Overview

The 10-episode dark comedy from MGM Television, based in part on the 1990 best-selling novel of the same name by  Elmore Leonard, will debut on EPIX Sunday, August 13 at 10:00PM ET/PT, 9:00PM CT.

The cast, led by Screen Actors Guild Award® and BAFTA TV Award nominee Chris O’Dowd (“Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children,” Sapphires,  Bridesmaids) and multiple Emmy® winner Ray Romano (“Everybody Loves Raymond,” “Men of a Certain Age,” “Parenthood”), includes Sean Bridgers (“Rectify,” Room); Lidia Porto (Horrible Bosses 2); Megan Stevenson (“Review”); Goya Robles (11:55); Lucy Walters (“Power”) and Carolyn Dodd (The Adventures of Catty Wompus).

O’Dowd plays Miles Daly, a hitman from Nevada who tries to become a movie producer in Hollywood as a means to leave his criminal past behind and win back his recently-estranged family.  There, he meets Rick Moreweather (Romano), a washed up producer of low quality films who is desperately hanging on to the rungs of Hollywood relevancy and begrudgingly becomes Miles’ partner and guide through the maze of show business.  Along with his criminal associate Louis (Bridgers), Miles attempts to keep his worlds from colliding as he balances the demands of filmmaking while keeping the suspicions of the crime ring’s chief – and production bankroll – Amara (Porto) and her dangerous nephew, Yago (Robles) at bay.  Also involved in the production is ambitious studio executive April Adams (Stevenson), who started in the business as Rick’s assistant, as well as Miles’ beloved daughter Emma (Dodd) – despite objections from Miles’ estranged wife, Katie (Walters).

Created for television by Davey Holmes (“Shameless,” “In Treatment,” “Damages”), Get Shorty is executive produced by Holmes and Emmy nominee Allen Coulter (The Sopranos,” “Damages”) who also directs the first episode. Adam Arkin (“The Americans,” “Billions”) directed three episodes of the series and is also a co-executive producer. The series is produced by MGM Television and internationally distributed by MGM.
