Next week, Thanksgiving arrives, which will leave you with plenty of time to crash on the couch. And if you don’t feel like going out, Netflix has a must-see limited series that will help you digest all that turkey.
Scott Frank‘s “Godless” will be saddling up, and it’s bringing a terrific cast and premise to the small screen. Jeff Daniels, Michelle Dockery, Jack O’Connell, Scoot McNairy, Sam Waterston, and Kim Coates star in the series which isset in a mining town in the Old West made up entirely of women, where an outlaw attempts to hunt down his former protege. Here’s the official synopsis:
Notorious criminal Frank Griffin (Jeff Daniels) and his gang of outlaws are on a mission of revenge against Roy Goode (Jack O’Connell), a son-like protégé who betrayed the brotherhood. While on the run, Roy seeks refuge with hardened widower Alice Fletcher (Michelle Dockery), an outcast herself, in a worn-down, isolated mining town of La Belle, NM — governed mainly by women. When word reaches La Belle that Griffin is headed their way, the town bands together to defend against the murderous gang in a lawless western frontier.
“Godless” hits Netflix on November 22nd.
