The Coen brothers are coming to TV

Ethan and Joel Coen, film auteurs best known for Fargo, No Country for Old Men and the very Semitic A Serious Man, are bringing their expertise to television.

They are working with Cedar Rapids screenwriter Phil Johnson to create Harve Karbo for FOX.

The single camera, hour long show will follow the exploits of a hapless private detective whose work in Los Angeles will inevitably force him to cross paths with famous folks. [THR]

Does this mean we will get to see a bunch of celebrity cameos? And if so — which actor from a Coen brothers’ film would you like to see appear on the show?

Personally, I’m pulling for Bunny Lebowski, who was played by Tara Reid. Unlike some of the other actors, she probably won’t be so hard to book.
