Stemming from the partnership between Jason Bateman, Michael Costigan and Netflix, the streamer has given a formal series order to the action drama Florida Man, starring Emmy nominee Edgar Ramirez (American Crime Story: The Assassination of Gianni Versace).
Netflix’s Florida Man, not to be confused with the limited series of the same name starring Joel Edgerton, will have Donald Todd as its writer and showrunner. Todd is a veteran TV screenwriter who has worked on such shows as This Is Us, Ugly Betty, Brother’s Keeper and more. The series, created by Todd, is part of Bateman and Costigan’s overall first-look deal with Netflix.
The series will be produced by Donald Todd along with Jason Bateman and Michael Costigan for Aggregate Films. Here’s everything else we know about Netflix’s Florida Man:
What’s the plot of Florida Man?
The official logline for Netflix’s Florida Man is the following:
In Florida Man, when a struggling ex-cop is forced to return to his home state of Florida to find a Philly mobster’s runaway girlfriend, what should be a quick gig becomes a spiraling journey into buried family secrets, and an increasingly futile attempt to do the right thing in a place where so much is wrong. The series is described as a wild odyssey into a sunny place for shady people in the spirit of Body Heat and Elmore Leonard’s Out Of Sight.
