A second season of Gunslingers is set to debut July 19th on the American Heroes Channel (AHC). The six-part docudrama series first premiered in 2014 and examined the lives of such Western legends as Wyatt Earp, Billy the Kid, and Jesse James. Season 2 will take a look at further legends such as Butch Cassidy, Seth Bullock, Bat Masterson, and Bass Reeves.
Gunslingers seeks to immerse the viewer in both the larger context and the given moment via a combination of expert analysis, historical re-enactments, and the voiced “thoughts” of a given figure. The following video from the Wyatt Earp episode of Season 1 demonstrates this approach (it features actor Kurt Russell, star of the 1993 Earp film, Tombstone):
The first episode of Season 2 – Butch Cassidy – The Perfect Criminal – premieres Sunday, July 19th at 10E/9C. Subsequent episodes will be shown on consecutive Sundays.
Further information about the series – including various video clips – can be found at Gunslingers.
