The American West – Teaser

Spanning the years 1865 to 1890, The American West, will show how, in the aftermath of the Civil War, the United States transforms into the “land of opportunity.”

The 8-episode series chronicles the personal, little-known stories of American Western legends such as Jesse James, Billy the Kid, Wyatt Earp, Crazy Horse and Sitting Bull.

The West catapults into a violent world of cowboys, Indians, outlaws and gunslingers. The grounds run red with the blood of their stories, from Jesse James to Billy the Kid and Butch Cassidy. These men were the first to live the American dream, and the first to die for it.
