‘Florida Man’ trailer brings Sunshine State noir comedy to Netflix

On Monday, Netflix released the full trailer for the upcoming crime dramedy limited series “Florida Man,” and if you weren’t in a Sunshine State of mind before, you will be after this. 

“Florida Man” stars Edgar Ramírez as Mike, an ex-cop with a debilitating gambling problem who owes a lot of money to a Philadelphia gangster named Moss Yankov (Emory Cohen, whose sleazy Caesar haircut is perfect for the character). When Moss’ girlfriend Delly (Abbey Lee) – with whom Mike has his own history – absconds to Florida, Mike is sent to his home state to find her. Mike tried to put Florida behind him, but once he returns, he’s pulled back into Florida’s well-documented craziness when Delly tells him a way they can get $100 million. It’s a big score that involves some really shady characters and lots and lots of guns. “This is Florida,” Clark Gregg’s character says. “The goddamn state is shaped like a gun.” He appears to be saying this at a gun show. 

The trailer is full of seedy noir iconography like a guy delivering a threat while standing beside a motel pool, someone peeking through their blinds while holding a gun, and lots of neon, while the key art has perhaps the perfect image to sum up a Florida-set crime comedy: an alligator with a gun on its snout.
