Another Western-themed show is in the works for the small screen, as TNT has given a cast-contigent pilot order for a project from “Band of Brothers” writer Bruce McKenna and "CSI" producer-director Danny Cannon, reports EW.com’s Inside TV blog.
Called "Gateway," the project is based in a Colorado town of the same name and is set in the 1880s. The story tracks three brothers who try to save their town against a corrupt cattle baron after their sheriff father is murdered.
The Western concept has gained some traction recently, with HBO’s "Deadwood" and FX’s neo-Western "Justified" doing well, the article points out. AMC, meanwhile, is moving ahead with its post-Civil War story "Hell on Wheels," about an ex-soldier working on the transcontinental railroad.
