Throughout the 19th century, the territory west of the Mississippi was a rough place, crawling with outcasts, murderers, thieves and bounty hunters. Across this lawless landscape, a few brave men protected the innocent from an endless stream of gun-wielding outlaws. In this thrilling six-part historical docudrama series, viewers can immerse themselves in the true stories behind infamous icons and legendary conflicts of the Wild West. From unlawful lawman Wyatt Earp, teenage vagabond Billy the Kid, scorned rebel Jesse James, Yankee sharpshooter Wild Bill Hickok, dangerous psychopath John Wesley Hardin and war veteran-turned-assassin Tom Horn. Juxtaposed with vivid re-enactments, expert commentary is layered throughout each episode to ensure the authenticity and historical accuracy of each story. Contributors include creator of ‘Deadwood’ David Milch, and actor Kurt Russell, who portrayed his favourite western icon, Wyatt Earp, in the classic film ‘Tombstone.’
