If you’re in the mood for Brits doing extremely specific and hard to decifer American accents, then Godless – the new western thriller coming to Netflix this month – might be perfect festive viewing for you.
Michelle Dockery (Downton Abbey; Good Behavior) and Jack O’Connell (Skins; lots of other things) star alongside Jeff Daniels, and the eight-episode limited series will premiere on November 22.
Welcome to no man’s land. Watch the trailer below:
29/06/2016: Netflix has announced that Michelle Dockery will be the female lead in new western mini-series Godless.
The period drama also stars Jeff Daniels (The Martian) and Jack O’Connell (Skins).
Godless centers on Frank Griffin (Daniels), a menacing outlaw who is terrorizing the West as he hunts down Roy Goode (O’Connell), his son-like partner turned mortal enemy.
While Roy hides at Alice Fletcher’s (Dockery) ranch, Frank’s chase leads him to the quiet town of La Belle, N.M. — which is mysteriously made up of entirely women.
Michelle Dockery is best known for her role as Lady Mary in Downton Abbey, which concluded on ITV last Christmas. She was nominated for a Golden Globe and two Emmys for her performance in the hit period drama.
The British actress has just finished filming the lead role on TNT’s series Good Behavior, which premieres this autumn.
Godless will premiere worldwide on Netflix in 2017.
