In this edition of Meet Me at the Movies: Open Dialogue, Thomas Manning sits down with Edgar Ramírez and Abbey Lee to discuss the new Netflix limited series Florida Man.
They discuss their previous personal experiences with the state of Florida, as well as collaborating with showrunner Donald Todd and multiple directors throughout the series.

When a struggling ex-cop (Edgar Ramírez) is forced to return to his home state of Florida to find a Philly mobster’s runaway girlfriend, what should be a quick gig becomes a wildly spiraling journey into buried family secrets, and an increasingly futile attempt to do the right thing in a place where so much is wrong. Florida Man, from creator Donald Todd, is a wild odyssey into a sunny place for shady people.
Available on Netflix beginning April 13th, 2023.
