Premise:

It's 1934, and we're in the middle of the Dust Bowl, a time when sand storms and disease were running rampant across the Great Plains. After his mother's death, 18-year-old fugitive Ben Hawkins ("Terminator 3's" Nick Stahl) is picked up by a mysterious traveling carnival run by an unseen force known only as "Management." Surrounded by magic, Ben reconnects with his long-dormant supernatural powers. Meanwhile, hundreds of miles away, an evangelical preacher (Clancy Brown) is plagued with apocalyptic visions. What the two of them don't know is that they're set to become players in the great (and heretofore hidden) battle between Darkness and Light.
