EPIX(R) DARK COMEDY "GET SHORTY," FROM MGM TELEVISION, GETS STARTED ON SEASON TWO

Felicity Huffman Joins As Recurring Guest Star

Sarah Stiles Upped to Series Regular for Season Two

Second Season Production Underway In Los Angeles

NEW YORK - February 8, 2018 - Premium pay television network EPIX(R), an MGM company, today announced that production is underway on its critically-acclaimed original series Get Shorty, with Emmy(R) and Golden Globe(R)-winning and Academy Award(R)-nominated actress Felicity Huffman (Transamerica, Desperate Housewives) joining the cast as a recurring guest star. Huffman will play Clara Dillard, a mothering, high-level special agent for the FBI, described as hippie therapist meets J. Edgar Hoover. She takes over the investigation focusing on Amara and the crime organization in season two. The dark comedy from MGM Television, based in part on the 1990's bestselling Elmore Leonard novel of the same name and created for television by Davey Holmes (Shameless, In Treatment), will shoot its ten-episode second season entirely in Los Angeles. The series returns to EPIX later this year.

In season two of Get Shorty, Miles Daly (Chris O'Dowd) struggles to reconcile his ambitions as a filmmaker and a family man with his skill set as a career criminal. His progress in Hollywood is jeopardized when the washed-up producer (Ray Romano), with whom he partnered in season one, agrees to wear a Federal wire. Miles faces off with criminal financiers and with a Hollywood power-broker who could be the most dangerous of all.

Best known for her award-winning role as Lynette Scavo on ABC's hit series Desperate Housewives, the talented Huffman has appeared in a multitude of prolific roles across both film and television. She earned an Academy Award(R) nomination, as well as a Golden Globe Award and Independent Spirit Award for her performance in the acclaimed 2006 film Transamerica. Most recently, she appeared in the ABC limited series American Crime, for which she received three Emmy(R) nominations. She is also a founding member of the off-Broadway Atlantic Theater Company.

The cast of Get Shorty is led by Screen Actors Guild Award(R) and BAFTA TV Award nominee O'Dowd (Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children, The Sapphires, Bridesmaids) and multiple Emmy(R) winner Romano (Everybody Loves Raymond, Men of a Certain Age, Parenthood), and also includes Sean Bridgers (Rectify, Room), Carolyn Dodd (The Adventures of Catty Wompus), Lidia Porto (Horrible Bosses 2), Goya Robles (11:55), Megan Stevenson (Review), and Lucy Walters (Power). Sarah Stiles (I'm Dying Up Here, Unsane) will return in season two and has been upped to series regular.

Get Shorty is executive produced by Holmes and Adam Arkin (The Americans, Sneaky Pete). The series is produced by MGM Television and internationally distributed by MGM.

Season one of Get Shorty premiered on EPIX in August 2017 and became the network's most successful series to date.

Also returning to EPIX are acclaimed original drama Berlin Station, recently renewed for season three, and season two of the documentary series America Divided, from executive producer Norman Lear. In addition, the network is in post-production on a suspenseful dramatic event series based on the bestselling European novel by Jo´┐Żl Dicker, The Truth About the Harry Quebert Affair, starring Patrick Dempsey and directed by Jean-Jacques Annaud with MGM Television, Eagle Pictures and Barbary Films producing.

EPIX is available nationwide for subscription on a number of cable and satellite providers, including Charter (formerly Time Warner), DISH, Sling TV, Verizon FIOS, Cox, Sony VUE, AT&T U-verse, Frontier and coming in 2018, Comcast's X1 platform. ?
