Netflix just released the first photos from the upcoming Western limited series, Godless, from Oscar winner Steven Soderbergh (Traffic). The seven episode series stars Jeff Daniels (The Newsroom), Michelle Dockery (Downton Abbey), and Jack O’Connell (Unbroken). The series also features Kim Coates (Sons of Anarchy), Scoot McNairy (Halt and Catch Fire), and Thomas Brodie-Sangster (Game of Thrones).
The original limited series is executive produced by Casey Silver and is written and directed by Scott Frank (A Walk Among the Tombstones). Netflix is set to premiere Godless on November 22, 2017.
The Godless Plot: Notorious criminal Frank Griffin (Jeff Daniels) and his gang of outlaws are on a mission of revenge against Roy Goode (Jack O’Connell), a son-like protégé who betrayed the brotherhood. While on the run, Roy seeks refuge with hardened widower Alice Fletcher (Michelle Dockery), an outcast herself, in a worn-down, isolated mining town of La Belle, NM — governed mainly by women. When word reaches La Belle that Griffin is headed their way, the town bands together to defend against the murderous gang in a lawless western frontier.
