One of my most highly anticipated TV shows in quite some time is the new Timothy Olyphant lawman series “Justified”. (Yes, they’ve since changed the title from “Lawman” to “Justified”. Personally, I liked the old title better, but what do I know.) Here are three more promos from the show, which is debuting on the FX Channel in March 16, 2010. Based on a series of popular short stories by crime author Elmore Leonard, and adapted for TV by “Speed’s” Graham Yost. Mark your calendars, kids. In the meantime, enter the “Justified” sweepstakes and win some groovy prizes.
U.S. Marshal Raylan Givens is a modern day 19th century-style lawman, enforcing his brand of justice in a way that puts a target on his back with criminals and places him at odds with his bosses in the Marshal service. That conflict results in a reassignment for Givens to the U.S. District covering the town where he grew up. He is an anachronism – a tough, soft spoken gentleman who finds his quarry fascinating, but never gives an inch. Dig under his placid skin and you’ll find an angry man who grew up hard in rural Kentucky, with an outlaw father, who knows a lot more about who he doesn’t want to be than who he really is.
Starring Timothy Olyphant, William Ragsdale, Joelle Carter, Doug E. Doug, Walton Goggins, Damon Herriman, Jere Burns, David Hill, David Meunier, Jacob Pitts, and Nick Searcy.
