Hi Bryan Here….

ABC won the bid and purchased ‘Hangtown’ from Ron Moore.  Ron Moore was the showrunner, director, producer, writer for the revamped Battlestar Galactica series on Sy-Fy.  Also on the Hangtown project is Caprica writer Matt Roberts.

“Described as a Western with a procedural overlay, Hangtown is set in the early 1900s in a frontier town that’s begun rapidly expanding with the coming of the railroad. It centers on three characters: the Marshal, a Matt Dillon/Clint Eastwood type who prefers to solve crimes by his instinct; a young  doctor from the East Coast who is interested in using the new field of forensics to solve crimes; and a young woman writer who is trying to sell dime novels to the publishing houses in New York about crime in the Wild West. Every week the instincts of the Marshal, the science of the doctor, and the young woman’s drive to tell a rousing good yarn to her editors combine to solve crimes in a wide-open, lawless town.

Ron Moore can do no wrong.  Can’t wait for his take on the western genre.  Just wish it was on another network.  Your thoughts?

Movie Quotes

Sin LaSalle:
Have you lost your mind? I mean, how is it that you can disrespect a mans ethnicity when you know we've influenced nearly every facet of white America... from our music to our style of dress. Not to mention your basic imitation of our sense of cool; walk, talk, dress, mannerisms... we enrich your very existence, all the while contributing to the gross national product through our achievements in corporate America. It's these conceits that comfort me when I am faced with the ignorant, cowardly, bitter and bigoted, who *have* no talent, no guts? people like you who desecrate things they don't understand when the truth is - you should say thank-you, man? and go on about your way. But apparently you are incapable of doing that! So...

Sin LaSalle:
... and don't tell me to be cool. I *am* cool!
