Keith Carradine Heading Back to the Wild West Via Gateway

Keith Carradine, who
played “Wild” Bill Hitchcock in HBO’s western drama, Deadwood,
is set to return to the wild west. No, I’m not talking about Cowboys
and Aliens
, although he did also star in that film as Sheriff
John Taggart. Starting to see a pattern here?

Gateway is
the name of TNT’s forthcoming western show, which was formerly
dubbed
Tin Star in
reference to the sheriff’s badge. Bruce C. McKenna and Danny Cannon
are set to produce the show, which was given a cast-contingent pilot
order in August.

The story is centered
around a town called Gateway, which
is put in danger when its current sheriff is murdered, leaving his
three sons to step in and protect the community. Carradine plays Frank Saar, a worn-out rancher in the 1880’s, who becomes
a father-figure to the sheriff’s sons, one of whom is to be played by
The O.C’s Cam
Gigandet.
The western will be based on a script written by Bruce
C. McKenna, who also wrote the Pacific and
Band of Brothers mini
series.
