“I have to go to Florida… so I can leave Florida.” They’ve finally gone and did it! They made a series based on the “Florida Man” meme. Of course they did. Netflix has revealed the first look teaser for the series titled, simply, Florida Man. It’s not a documentary series, it’s a fictional (or is it??) drama limited sereis starring Edgar Ramírez. 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 wildly spiraling journey into digging up buried family secrets, and an increasingly futile attempt to do the right thing in a place where so much is wrong. The show is “a wild odyssey into a sunny place for shady people.” Sounds about right. The cast also includes Abbey Lee, Anthony LaPaglia, Otmara Marrero, Lex Scott Davis, Emory Cohen, Clark Gregg, Isaiah Johnson, Paul Schneider, & Lauren Buglioli. Huh. This doesn’t seem as amusing or as bizarre as it should, much more of an intense thriller about how wacky and weird and screwed up Florida is.
Here’s the first teaser trailer (+ poster) for Netflix’s series Florida Man, direct from YouTube:
