DEADWOOD


¡Nueva viciada! Se trata de una serie americana considerada lo mejor que se ha hecho en western desde Sin Perdón. Deadwood es una de esas series producidas por guionistas. Últimamente se dice que el mejor cine americano son sus series televisivas y es cierto, ya que se atreven a producir para la TV lo que no se atreven a hacer en el cine: historias complicadas, sangre, desnudos, gente que bebe y fuma, experimentación con técnicas nuevas, palabras malsonantes, personajes complejos… Ayer me tragué el primer capítulo de la primera temporada y me he quedado un poco tocado. Estoy deseando meterme ya el segundo.
Deadwood is a Western set in the 1870s in Deadwood, Dakota Territory. At the time, Deadwood (a real town in the modern state of South Dakota) was little more than a makeshift camp, but it was a popular destination for those prospecting for gold in the Black Hills. The series charts Deadwood's growth from camp to town, incorporating themes ranging from the formation of communities to western capitalism.
Deadwood features many historical figures, such as Wild Bill Hickok, Seth Bullock, Sol Star, Calamity Jane, Al Swearengen, Wyatt Earp, E. B. Farnum and George Hearst. The plotlines involving these characters include historical truths as well as substantial fictional elements. Some of the characters are fully fictional, although they certainly may have been based on actual persons.
The show was created by David Milch (NYPD Blue), who also serves as executive producer and head writer. The theme music was written by David Schwartz. (imdb)
