Paul Giamatti’s “Darkly comedic” new series “Hoke”, set up at FX, has been greenlit.

Based on Charles Willeford’s series of novels, Sideswipe, New Hope for the Dead and The Way We Die Now, “Hoke” is the story of “mid-life crisis and murder that features the hard-boiled and possibly insane homicide detective, “Hoke Moseley” (Giamatti), in pre-chic Miami circa 1985.”

Production on the series, which Curtis Hanson (“L.A Confidential”) is an EP on , will begin in Miami later this year. Scott Frank is the brainchild behind the show.

“Like Elmore Leonard, Charles Willeford is one of the most deeply respected writers of crime fiction and he created a wholly original and colorful lead character in Detective Hoke Mosely,” FX Networks original programming president Eric Schrier said in a statement announcing the news Wednesday via The Hollywood Reporter. He added: “Scott Frank delivered a magnificent script and we are honored that Paul Giamatti will bring Hoke to life. We’re grateful to Curtis Hanson, Carol Fenelon, Paul, and Dan Carey for bringing us this project.”
