Dennis Quaid and Michael Chiklis star in this character-driven 1960's period piece inspired by the true story of Ralph Lamb, a cowboy turned sheriff of Las Vegas, and Johnny Savino, a Chicago mob fixer. In a vast desert with unlimited opportunities, where no man is all good or all bad, Savino's entrepreneurial vision collides with the law-and-order mandate of the sheriff. Academy Award-nominated writer Nicholas Pileggi and Academy Award-nominated writer/director James Mangold are the creative minds behind this compelling new drama.
