The comedian will play a crime boss on the Noah Hawley FX series set in 1950s Kansas City, Missouri. "I'm a fan of Fargo and I can't wait to work with Noah," said Rock in a statement. Rock previously worked with FX as executive producer of Totally Biased with W. Kamau Bell. According to the show's logline, "in Kansas City, Missouri, two criminal syndicates have struck an uneasy peace. One Italian, one African American. Together they control an alternate economy — that of exploitation, graft and drugs. This too is the history of America. To cement their peace, the heads of both families have traded their eldest sons. Chris Rock plays the head of one family, a man who — in order to prosper — has surrendered his oldest boy to his enemy, and who must in turn raise his son’s enemy as his own. It’s an uneasy peace, but profitable. And then the head of the Kansas City mafia goes into the hospital for routine surgery and dies. And everything changes."
