Western drama series. July, 1876: Seth Bullock abandons his position as Marshall in the Montana Territory to begin a career as a hardware merchant in Deadwood, Dakota Territory, a burgeoning, lawless gold-rush town set in the heart of Native land. Joining Bullock in the endeavor is his friend Sol Star.
Also drawn to Deadwood is Wild Bill Hickok, the famed gunfighter and lawman. He travels with his old friend Charlie Utter and the foul-mouthed Calamity Jane. Ruling over much of the town is the foul moutherd Al Swearengen.
Season two saw the action move to 1877 and Deadwood growing a pace heading right into becoming a town; Seth Bullock is town sheriff and Cy Tolliver is a brothel owner and Al’s chief rival in town.
Season three saw the arrival of a ruthless new businessman George Hearst (Gerald McRaney) who has big plans for Deadwood, even if that means making enemies whilst he does so. The rivalry that develops between Hearst and Swearengen drives through the heart of this season and builds towards the climax of the season – Deadwood’s first election.
A “reunion” movie has long been rumoured to be in the works.
