I've been waiting for the release of this trailer since AMC greenlit the series. Now that it's out and the trailer seems to match the promise of it's premise, I thought I'd share it with everyone here.
Created by Tony and Joe Gayton, "Hell on Wheels" takes place immediately after the Civil War in 1865, as a former Confederate soldier named Cullen Bohannon (Anson Mount) seeks his revenge against the Union soldiers who killed his wife. Bohannon's quest takes him to the forefront of the Union Pacific Railroad company's transcontinental rail construction.
A quick clance at the IMBD pages of the star, Anson Mount (IMDB page) and creators (Joe Gayton's IMBD page, Tony's IMDB) does not inspire confidence however. The Salton Sea, written by Tony is literally the only thing they've done that it looks like I wold enjoy. Although in fairness, I have not seen Faster, so maybe that's good.
Here's hoping that AMC's reputation for good television outweighs the rather pedestrian resumes of those involved with this show, because I really want it to be good.
