Hoke Pilot Starring Paul Giamatti in the Works at FX

Paul GiamattiDeadline reports that FX has ordered “comedic drama” pilot Hoke, starring Paul Giamatti. It’s based on Charles Willeford’s Hoke Moseley series of detective novels, which stars with Miami Blues. Set in Miami around 1985, the novels are about a detective in the midst of a midlife crisis. This isn’t Giamatti’s only project with FX: last month news broke that he’s pairing up with the network for a Civil War limited series based on Tony Horwitz’s Midnight Rising: John Brown and the Raid That Sparked the Civil War.
