Based on the Leonard Elmore novel, Get Shorty follows Miles Daly, a hitman from Nevada who tries to become a movie producer in Hollywood with the help of a washed-up producer, Rick Moreweather, as a means to leave his criminal past behind. The drama series is produced by MGM Television and stars Chris O’Dowd, Ray Romano, Sean Bridgers, Lidia Porto, Megan Stevenson, Lucy Walters and Carolyn Dodd.
In the show’s second season, Miles Daly (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 (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. Former Major Crimes star Raymond Cruz joins the cast in a recurring role for season two.
