'Get Shorty' Renewed at Epix
Epix has renewed its latest original effort, giving a sophomore order to Get Shorty just a few weeks after its premiere.
The drama, based on the 1990 Elmore Leonard novel and 1995 Barry Sonnenfeld movie, stars Chris O'Dowd and Ray Romano. The show has gotten a warm reception from critics, with The Hollywood Reporter calling it an "improbable idea" with "great execution."
Created for television by Davey Holmes (Shameless), Get Shorty's second season will consist of another 10 episodes and is set to air in 2018. The series is produced by MGM Television and distributed by MGM, which also owns the network.
