Deadwood #1

DeadWood Premiers March 21st on HBO (after The Sopranos)


Quote:
In an age of plunder and greed, the richest gold strike in American History draws a throng of restless misfits to an outlaw settlement where everything and everyone has a price.

Welcome to Deadwood...a hell of a place to make your fortune.

From Executive Producer David Milch ("NYPD Blue") comes DEADWOOD, a new drama series that focuses on the birth of an American frontier town and the ruthless power struggle that exists in its lawless boundaries.

The story begins two weeks after Custer's defeat at Little Big Horn, combining fictional and real-life characters and events in an epic morality tale. Located in the Black Hills Indian Cession, the "town" of Deadwood is an illegal settlement, a violent and uncivilized outpost that attracts a colorful array of characters looking to get rich from outlaws and entrepreneurs to ex-soldiers and racketeers, Chinese laborers, prostitutes, city dudes and gunfighters.

Among the settlers are ex-lawman Seth Bullock, played by Timothy Olyphant ("Go," "Gone in 60 Seconds"), the legendary gunfighter and scout Wild Bill Hickok, played by Keith Carradine ("Nashville," "Pretty Baby") and Machiavellian saloon owner Al Swearengen, played by Ian McShane ("Sexy Beast," "War and Remembrance").

With its unflinching realism, adult themes and wickedly inventive storylines, DEADWOOD is an intense, character-driven drama that takes elements of the traditional western and turns them upside down. "I had always wanted to do a series set in some period where it was legitimate to explore the genesis of law," Milch says. "What interested me about Deadwood is that it was an outlaw settlement, on Indian territory, so the American law didn't apply there were no laws at all."

Milch, DEADWOOD's creator and head writer in addition to its executive producer, is a onetime Yale lecturer whose TV credits include such series as "NYPD Blue" (he was co-creator) and "Hill Street Blues." Walter Hill ("48 HRS.", "The Long Riders") directed DEADWOOD's pilot episode. Gregg Fienberg ("Gods and Monsters") is co-executive producer. Director/producer Davis Guggenheim ("Alias" and "24") and Scott Stephens ("The Mind of the Married Man") serving as producer.

I saw the pilot yesterday and yeah - it's actually something I'll keep on watching, I guess. I [img]smilies/love.gif[/img] the set and they have great actors on board. just one thing - what's with the language? I'm aware that guys like that must have cursed - but "*****ing"? and "c*cks*cker"? I thought that's more like second half of the 20th century than 1870s. [img]smilies/rolleyes.gif[/img]

Deadwood: Weclome To Deadwood!

Anyone watch the western show on HBO that starts Timothy Olyphant, Ian McShane, Molly Parker and Brad Dourif among many other talented actors and actresses.

My favorite character on the show has to be Al Swearengen.

wow, someone else actually found this thread.

I love this show. For me - it's second only to The Wire, quite possibly the best show on HBO. Just perfection.

What season are you on?

Well, I watched the first season on DVD, then for season 2, my channel that plays it was on ep 7 when I managed to get on to it, so I've seen eps 7 and 8 and I'm seeing 9 tonight
