Edgar Ramrez, who starred in the Netflix original family movie Yes Day, will be in the new limited drama series Florida Man. Deadline wrote about the show’s development and other casting news in August 2021. Netflix had already announced Florida Man, which was made by creator Donald Todd, and Aggregate Films, which was made by Jason Bateman and Michael Costigan. The show is part of Aggregate’s deal with the streamer to get a first look at new shows. Ozark, a Netflix original that has been a huge hit, was also made by Aggregate Films. With this team working on it, it’s sure to make another great Netflix show.
The episodes will be an hour long, and Ramrez will work with Yes Day’s director Miguel Arteta again. Arteta will direct the pilot and the second episode, and he will also be the show’s executive producer. Julian Farino, Haifaa Al Mansour, and Kevin Bray will also be in charge of the show.
What is the plot of Florida Man?
Florida Man appears to be influenced by well-known memes. However, no particular headline is the main source of the tv series. Rather, it represents a fictional story. Florida Man is about an ex-cop named Valentine who lost his job because of gambling. He might get a chance to show himself when he goes looking for a mobster’s runaway girlfriend.
Sadly, he ends up in Florida because of this assignment. He demonstrates that he has no love for Florida, despite the fact that it’s his home state. He wanted to close the case as soon as possible and go. But when he recognizes he is in Florida, he knows that it will take more work to leave his hometown. Instead, he is drawn into a globe of criminal activity and murky secrets.
Todd has yet to talk a lot about the idea of his new series. But, judging by the name, Florida Man memes had an effect. Also, Netflix has promised that the tv series will be about a lot more than just memes. While there are numerous examples of crazy headlines, Florida Man is a made-up story that was only inspired by memes that went viral. Given that strange news stories often come out of Florida, the story will give a full fictional account of what might be expected to happen there.
