Netflix is lighting out west. Deadline reports the streaming service has picked up Frontier, a Canadian action adventure series starring Jason Momoa.
The series also stars Alun Armstrong, Zoe Boyle, and Landon Liboiron.
Created by Rob Blackie and Peter Blackie, Frontier “follows the chaotic and violent struggle to control wealth and power in the North American fur trade in the late 18th century. Told from multiple perspectives, the series takes place in a world where business negotiations might be resolved with close-quarter hatchet fights, and where delicate relations between native tribes and Europeans can spark bloody conflicts.”
It’s the first original scripted series for Discovery Canada, and it will premiere on the network while being distributed by Netflix outside of the country.
All six episodes of Frontier’s first season will be available on Netflix in 2016.
