  • Perfect for fans of Taylor Sheridan Westerns and history lovers

    "Lawmen: Bass Reeves is perfect for viewers who love Taylor Sheridan’s Westerns, like Yellowstone and 1923, but will also appeal to anyone who appreciates historical shows. It has all of the realism, authenticity, and gun-slinging action that has made Sheridan a staple in the Western genre. However, it also goes a bit deeper than his previous works as it serves the important purpose of bringing the oft-forgotten true story of the first Black deputy U.S. Marshal, Bass Reeves, into the spotlight. It's a poignant and powerful celebration of an untold history that further elevates the Western premise."

  • Perfect for fans of Westerns and true stories

    "Based on the true story of one of America’s first Black deputy marshals, Lawman: Bass Reeves is an action-packed western that fans of the genre will love. But its deeper plot and inclusion of issues like race and slavery make the show appealing to a much broader audience and is a sure bet for anyone who loves a deep, compelling drama. If you loved series like Deadwood or movies like Tombstone, this is a show you’re gonna love."
