The new series focuses on a completely new set of characters, a veritable who's who of talented actors and actresses. Representing the good guys along with Lou is his father-in-law, Hank (Ted Danson), while Floyd Gerhardt (Jean Smart)'s crime syndicate matriarch has "three sons with different levels of psychopathic tendencies," described the actress. Caught in the middle is young married couple Peggy and Ed Blumquist (Kirsten Dunst and Jesse Plemons), who have dreams of "living peacefully and working hard," said Plemons. But...who knows?
