Keegan-Michael Key and Jordan Peele will appear in four episodes of FX’s TV adaptation of “Fargo.”

The comedians, who star in their eponymous Comedy Central sketch show, will play FBI partners obsessed with finding Billy Bob Thornton’s rootless, manipulative Lorne Malvo. Their search ultimately brings them to Bemidji, Minnesota, and into the larger circle of the show.

The 10-part limited drama series is an adaptation of the Coen brothers’ Oscar-winning film and comes from writer-exec producer Noah Hawley and exec producers Warren Littlefield, Joel & Ethan Coen, and Geyer Kosinski. It debuts April 15 on FX.
