Get ready to learn how the west was won.
Discovery has announced that it is set to air a new series, The West, which “will provide unprecedented access into the wilderness, frontier lawlessness, and bloodshed of the 40 years between the end of the American Civil War and after the turn of the 20th Century,” according to the release. The show will feature the famous stories and characters — such as Jesse James, Crazy Horse and Buffalo Bill — at the center of this “violent, blood-soaked period in American history.”
The West, premiering in 2014, will be produced for Discovery by Robert Redford and Laura Michalchyshyn’s Sundance Productions, who recently produced Discovery channel’s Emmy-nominated documentary All The President’s Men Revisited. READ FULL STORY
