A drama that follows the rise of a family dynasty over multiple generations.


This multi-generational saga follows the McCullough family through two concurrent time periods.

The first takes place in 1849, where a young Eli McCullough is kidnapped and indoctrinated into a tribe of Comanches.

The other takes place 60 years later, where Eli is now the grown, charismatic patriarch of the McCullough clan. Eli applies his brutal Comanche worldviews in his dealings while struggling to maintain his family's cattle empire during the turbulent Bandit Wars of South Texas.

Yesh, it's television. Obviously you people never watched a soap opera.

The age of the main character doesn't add up, do the math. Pierce Brosman does not look 80 years old. Geez,he apparently doesn't even need Viagra. That said, I find the show interesting and I'm looking forward to seeing it develop.

My biggest issue with the show is the patriarch's age. If the young Eli was let's say 15 in 1849 that would make him 81 in 1915. I'm not buying into that scenario. There are many othe issues that I have with this story, but that is the most glaring.
