He was born into enslavement, went on to combat within the Civil Battle [and] then escaped to the Indian Territory; realized the Native American languages and abilities, which ended up being utilized to his profession as a lawman, and [he] had essentially the most prolific profession. 3000 arrests in his profession and somebody whose exploits are really legendary. We’re doing it as a six-part miniseries. So mainly a six-hour film.[…] Now, again within the day whenever you watched ‘Ben-Hur’ or ‘Lawrence of Arabia’, that was epic storytelling, however you place a three-hour [or] four-hour movie in entrance of individuals now [they’re like] “oh, gosh!” However you allow them to binge one thing that [is] six to 10 hours, they’re all in.
