Taylor Sheridan's Paramount+ prequel series 1883, which was picked up straight to series in February, "follows the Dutton family as they embark on a journey west through the Great Plains toward the last bastion of untamed America," per The Hollywood Reporter. "It is a stark retelling of Western expansion, and an intense study of one family fleeing poverty to seek a better future in America’s promised land — Montana. Elliott will play Shea Brennan, a tough cowboy with immense sadness in his past. He has the herculean task of guiding a group from Texas to Montana, and he does not suffer fools. McGraw and Hill will portray James and Margaret Dutton, the patriarch and matriarch of the Dutton family, respectively."
