DARK COMEDY GET SHORTY, FROM MGM TELEVISION, RENEWED FOR SEASON THREE WITH PREMIERE SLATED FOR 2019 ON STAN
Stan has today announced that Get Shorty, from MGM Television, has been renewed for a third season. The dark comedy, based in part on the 1990’s bestselling Elmore Leonard novel of the same name and created for television by Davey Holmes (Shameless, In Treatment) will return in 2019 to Stan with all-new episodes available immediately after the U.S. debut.
The series follows Miles Daly (Chris O’Dowd), muscle for a Nevada crime ring who tries to become a movie producer in Hollywood with the help of a washed-up producer, Rick Moreweather (Ray Romano), as a means to leave his criminal past behind. In season two, Miles struggles to reconcile his ambitions as a filmmaker and a family man with his skill set as a career criminal. His progress in Hollywood is jeopardized when the washed-up producer, with whom he partnered in season one, agrees to wear a Federal wire.
In season three, Miles embraces more ruthless methods as he settles scores and attempts to climb the Hollywood ladder.
The cast of Get Shorty season three is led by Screen Actors Guild Award® and BAFTA TV Award nominee O’Dowd (Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children, The Sapphires, Bridesmaids) and multiple Emmy® winner Romano (Everybody Loves Raymond, Men of a Certain Age, Parenthood), and also includes Sean Bridgers (Rectify, Room), Lidia Porto (Horrible Bosses 2), Carolyn Dodd (The Adventures of Catty Wompus),Goya Robles (11:55), Megan Stevenson (Review), Steven Weber (Ballers) and Sarah Stiles (I’m Dying Up Here).
