Well AMC has a new pilot appearing November 6th and it’s set in 1865, starring Anson Mount who is a former confederate soldier who is determined to seek revenge upon the union soldiers who murdered his wife. The show is being produced by Entertainment One and Nomadic Pictures.
The show is named after the Mobile city appropriately named “Hell on Wheels”, a lawless town that follows construction of the transcontinental railroad. A twist comes in the plot as the Cheyenne tribe soon attacks the town, they’re determined to destroy the project that is raping their lands.
The show features Anson Mount as Cullen Bohannon, Common as Elam Ferguson, Dominique McElligott as Lily Bell and more.
