November 10, 2011Working hard on our Arizona Centennial Special Issue in conjunction with our the redesign. Going to be sweet. Speaking of the centennial, here's our next Viva! Outlaw Women!
Yes, Pearl Hart was a handful. Robbed a stage with Joe Boot (what a great name!), sent to the hell hole. Got pregnant in the Yuma Pen, disappeared into nowhere, although Marshall Trimble claims she ended up in Globe, married to a semi-famous cowboy? Need to get to the bottom of that.
In Case, You Haven't Heard, The Rifleman Is Shooting Our Way Again
Plus, a slew of other Westerns. This is from the article on the reboot of the Rifleman:
The deal for The Rifleman was brokered by WME and Dan Black. This is the latest period Western put in development at the broadcast networks this season. Fox has a Wyatt Earp Western penned by John Hlavin, NBC has an untitled Kerry Ehrin project set in the 1880s, ABC has Ron Moore’s Hangtown , set in the early 1900 and David Zabel’s Gunslinger. Additionally, TNT recently gave a pilot order to Bruce C. McKenna and Danny Cannon’s Gateway, set in the 1880s, and the AMC series Hell On Wheels just premiered to strong ratings.
