Get Shorty series trailer with Ray Romano & Chris O’Dowd
Get Shorty is the story of Miles Daly, played by Chris O’Dowd, who works as muscle for a murderous crime ring in Nevada and attempts to change professions and become a movie producer, laundering money through a Hollywood film. Three-time Emmy award winner Ray Romano stars as Rick, a washed up producer of low quality films who becomes Miles’ partner and guide through the maze of Hollywood.
Created and executive produced by Davey Holmes (Shameless, In Treatment, Damages), the ten-episode, one-hour drama series is a reimagining of Elmore Leonard’s 1990 New York Times best-selling novel of the same name. The book was also famously made into a 1995 feature film directed by Barry Sonnenfeld and starring John Travolta, Gene Hackman, Rene Russo and Danny DeVito. Although their characters are named Miles Daly and Rick instead of Chili Palmer and Harry Zim, O’Dowd and Romano will play the Travolta and Hackman parts, respectively.
