Set in the 1960s, it's inspired by the true story of rancher-turned-Las Vegas Sheriff Ralph Lamb. Dennis Quaid plays Lamb, and Michael Chiklis ("The Shield") is his gangster nemesis. Jason O'Mara ("Terra Nova"), Carrie-Anne Moss ("The Matrix") and Taylor Handley ("Battle: Los Angeles") co-star.
If you can't wait until fall for new offerings, you're in luck. Several new dramas premiere this week:
There's plenty of soapy drama to be had, as the two camps battle over the fate of Southfork Ranch and also, of course, a woman: Elena (Jordana Brewster, "The Fast and the Furious"), who's Christopher's past love and John Ross' current flame. Also in the mix are Christopher's new wife Rebecca (Julie Gonzalo, "Eli Stone") and Bobby's wife, Ann (Brenda Strong, "Desperate Housewives'" Mary Alice).
