There's A New Sheriff In Town: 'Longmire'
Looks like Justified won't be the only modern-day western on the cable-TV range anymore. Starting June 3, viewers will be able to spend some quality time with Longmire, a new A&E Network series based on Craig Johnson's Walt Longmire mystery novels. Veteran actor Robert Taylor stars as Longmire, the sheriff of a small Wyoming town that evidently has more than its fair share of crimes that need solving, while Katee Sackhoff (Battlestar Galactica) and Lou Diamond Phillips appear in supporting roles
Here's what A&E promises to present during the 10-episode premiere season of Longmire:
"Widowed only a year, Longmire is a man in psychic repair who buries his pain behind a brave face and dry wit. Struggling since his wife’s death and at the urging of his daughter, Cady (Cassidy Freeman), Longmire knows that the time has come to turn his life around. With the help of Vic (Katee Sackhoff), a female deputy new to the department, he becomes reinvigorated about his job and committed to running for re-election. When Branch (Bailey Chase), an ambitious, young deputy decides to run against him for sheriff, Longmire feels betrayed but remains steadfast in his dedication to the community. Worn, but not worn out, Longmire often turns to close friend and confidant Henry Standing Bear (Lou Diamond Phillips) for support as he sets out to rebuild both his personal and professional lives, one step, and one mystery, at a time."
And here's a sneak peek at what you'll be seeing:
