The year is 1876. The location: the Black Hills of South Dakota. 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. Timothy Olyphant, Ian McShane, Molly Parker and Keith Carradine lead an ensemble cast in Season One of this drama series that focuses on the birth of a frontier town and the power struggle between its just and unjust inhabitants. 'Deadwood' combines fictional and real-life characters in an epic morality tale set in a town comprised primarily of ruthless outlaws and naive settlers--most of whom are driven by the greed and ambition of the Great American Gold Rush.
