Get Shorty premiered on EPIX on August 13, 2017. Miles Daly is a hitman from Nevada who tries to become a movie producer in Hollywood as a means to leave his criminal past behind and win back his recently-estranged family. There, he meets Rick Moreweather, a washed up producer of low quality films who is desperately hanging on to the rungs of Hollywood relevancy and begrudgingly becomes Miles' partner and guide through the maze of show business. Along with his criminal associate Louis, Miles attempts to keep his worlds from colliding as he balances the demands of filmmaking while keeping the suspicions of the crime ring's chief - and production bankroll - Amara and her dangerous nephew, Yago at bay. Also involved in the production is ambitious studio executive April, who started in the business as Rick's assistant, as well as Miles' beloved daughter Emma - despite objections from Miles' estranged wife.
