TV show description:
A Graham Yost-created TV drama, this series is based on the character U.S. Marshal Raylan Givens from short stories and novels by Elmore Leonard.
Givens (Timothy Olyphant) is a throwback to a time gone by, complete with Stetson hat, cowboy boots, and a gun that is used only when it’s absolutely necessary. He comes from the hills of Eastern Kentucky, and ran away at age 19, wanting to become a U.S. Marshal. After taking the heat from his superiors for shooting a thug in a Miami hotel, he’s punished by being sent to the one place he never wanted to go back to — Kentucky.
His superior on the job is an old friend from his academy days, Art Mullen (Nick Searcy). Givens’ fellow deputies are Tim Gutterson (Jacob Pitts) and Rachel Brooks (Erica Tazel).
The marshals in Lexington chase fugitives, protect witnesses and transport prisoners. Givens also must confront his past. That includes his old friend Boyd Crowder (Walton Goggins), who was once a coal miner and is now a fugitive bank robber; former cheerleader and crush Ava Crowder (Joelle Carter), ex-wife Winona (Natalie Zea), and his career criminal father, Arlo (Raymond Barry).
