HBO, Peter Berg Plan Western Drama

“Friday Night Lights” creator Peter Berg will executive produce and direct “Untamed,” a new hourlong Wild West set drama for HBO.

The story follows three mismatched travelers as they set out on a treacherous trek from 1840s Wyoming across the Rocky Mountains to Utah. Along the way, they’re forced to embrace some of their most primitive instincts to survive.

Mark L. Smith (“The Revenant”) will pen the script and also executive produce. The project joins HBO’s other projects in the works including “Westworld” and “Utopia”.
