From executive producer Robert Redford, Robert Redford’s The West explores the dramatic evolution of the American West, when cowboys, Indians, outlaws and sheriffs populated the land. The eight-part docudrama premieres exclusive on HISTORY. The adventure series chronicles the time between post-Civil War America and the closing of the Western Frontier, revealing the remarkable real-life stories behind many infamous Wild West legends, including Jesse James, Billy the Kid, Wyatt Earp, Crazy Horse, Sitting Bull and George Custer. Featuring exclusive interviews from famous film cowboys, including James Caan, Burt Reynolds, Tom Selleck, Kiefer Sutherland, Kris Kristofferson, Mark Harmon and Ed Harris, the series weaves intimate details about the West’s larger-than-life characters and shows how, in just 30 years, the opportunity of land turned the US into the ‘Land of Opportunity’.
