Plot Synopsis

Based on the Elmore Leonard novel and the 1995 film of the same name, GET SHORTY is a one-hour dramedy series that centers on Miles Daly, who worked as muscle for a murderous crime ring in Nevada, but, for the sake of his 12-year-old daughter Emma, attempts to change professions and become a movie producer, laundering money through a Hollywood film. Miles partners with Rick Moreweather, a washed-up producer of low quality films, who tries to guide him through the maze of Hollywood. But instead of leaving the criminal world behind, Miles accidentally brings it with him to the City of Angels. When Miles returns to Los Angeles to pitch the script for "The Admiral's Mistress" to Rick, Amara, the Latina Godmother of a Nevada crime ring, takes an interest in investing in the film, triggering anxiety in Louis -- Miles' partner and buddy within the crime ring -- and anger in Yago, the violent but insecure nephew of Amara. EPIX premiered GET SHORTY on Sunday, August 13, 2017 at 10pm ET/PT, debuting back-to-back new episodes.
On Sunday, October 8, 2017 at 10pm ET/PT, EPIX premiered the season finale of GET SHORTY. In the season ender, "Blue Pages," Miles faces a final reckoning with his family and must face his past, present and future head on as the film and those associated with it begin to unravel. Six weeks earlier -- on August 23 -- EPIX renewed GET SHORTY for a 10-episode second season.
