A few weeks on from his departure from “Vikings,” former model turned actor Travis Fimmel is returning to the cable network for a new and currently untitled historical anthology drama.
Fimmel will play Wyatt Earp in the series which will center on him and other iconic sinners and anti-heroes throughout history.
Earp dominates the first season with the show exploring his days in violent Dodge City and his complex relationships with Doc Holliday and Bat Masterson, all leading up to the events of the legendary gunfight at the OK Corral.
Fimmel conceived of the project and penned the first episode. He is attached to executive produce alongside Charles Roven and Alex Gartner.
