    Potato and pen.
    I'm not even sure if it's started yet, but does anyone know if there's a connection with the movie of that title?

    Is it a continuation with recast roles, or is it simply based on the movie, same characters, but the movie's events "never happened"? Does it have NOTHING to do with the film?

    I saw an ad with what looked like a female law enforcement officer that reminded me of the one in the movie, so it seemed there might be some type of connection.

    If anyone knows...

    Yes, there is a connection. I've avoided all spoilers as best I could but it seems to be something of a re-imagining of the movie for TV series format. Some of the characters look the same but things will be a bit different.

    From what I read the characters will be different but it's in the same "universe" as the original. The Coen Brothers gave their blessing but other than that, they have nothing to do with the show except an EP credit.

    It starts April 15th, in Justified's time slot, I believe.

    I have no idea if I'll like it or not, but they get the benifit of the doubt based on Justified, so I'll be checking it out.

    I'm one of those lucky people that can remember if I liked a movie, but have a hard time actually remembering anything about it. So I'm looking forward to it. SP already set.

    Little connection to the movie. None of the same characters.

    It will be a 10 episode mini-series.
