With “Hell on Wheels” having wrapped, AMC has effectively found a replacement with its new multigenerational western drama saga “The Son” and have today unveiled the first teaser trailers.
Pierce Brosnan stars as Eli McCullough, the ‘First Son of Texas’ in the time of the Old West. He’s also uneasy with the inexorable taming of his home state and the uncertain future of his legacy.
The story weaves between two time periods: the first following a young Eli and his life with the Comanches in 1849, the second some six decades later as he works to maintain his family’s cattle empire against the backdrop of the Bandit Wars of South Texas.
Henry Garrett, Sydney Lucas, Carlos Bardem, Jess Weixler, David Wilson Barnes and Zahn McClaron also star in the ten-episode series which has yet to set an airdate.
