NBC Hoping For Another Bonanza: Buys Western Project from Company of Emmy-Winning Actor

Sep 28, 2011  •  Post A Comment

Between 1961 and 1969, NBC’s hit Western "Bonanza" ranked no lower than fourth among all primetime TV shows.

The peacock network is hoping for some deja vu.

Today it has been revealed that NBC "has bought an untitled Western project from Sean Hayes’ Hazy Mills production company," according to our good friend Nellie Andreeva at Deadline.com.

The article continues, " ‘Friday Night Lights’ alumna Kerry Ehrin is writing the project, which is set in the 1880s and centers on Jacob Morris, a young, eccentric East Coast doctor of mental disorders who moves to a primitive Western town at the foot of the Colorado Rockies."
