Fargo Duluth Montage

The first season of the comedic crime-drama television series Fargo is peppered with references to Duluth, a few of which are collected in the montage above. No part of the series was shot in Duluth, though one scene has the Aerial Lift Bridge inserted into it and has a sort of Garfield Avenue feel.

The 10-episode first season, starring Billy Bob Thornton, aired in 2014 on the FX cable network. The series is inspired by the popular 1996 Coen brothers film Fargo. The Coen brothers are executive producers of the TV series, which was created and written by Noah Hawley.
