An Evening With… Deadwood


An Evening With… Deadwood

Includes a conversation with director Dan Minahan, executive producer Carolyn Strauss and actors Ian McShane, Timothy Olyphant, John Hawkes and Gerald McRaney

“Welcome to ******* Deadwood!” bellows Al Swearengen in the season 2 premiere of HBO’s Emmy Award-winning western Deadwood. Those words – from the end of a bloody fight, filled with bravado and attitude – are the perfect summation of life in a brutal gold mining town in what is now South Dakota. With a cast of dozens, creator David Milch is often rightfully credited with reviving the Western genre and creating a new mythos for a time of American expansion into the Wild West. After three seasons, the much-praised drama came to an abrupt end, though the hope for a feature-length final chapter has persisted in the decade-plus since the final episode aired.

Friday, May 31 on HBO, the profanity-prone denizens of Deadwood will take to our screens once again, as creator David Milch concludes his Western opus. With nearly the entire cast returning, this long-awaited follow up to the original series is sure to be a major television event. On April 23, Film Independent Presents brings cast and crew to the Wallis Annenberg Center for the Performing Arts in Beverly Hills for a special one-night only event. Moderated by Elvis Mitchell, clips from the first three seasons will be shown as the show’s stars discuss playing their iconic characters.

With its anachronistic take on profanity in the rugged West, Deadwood continues to thrill audiences, even after almost thirteen years off the air. This installment of An Evening With… will undoubtedly do the same, giving all in attendance an unprecedented behind-the-scenes look at one of HBO’s most acclaimed series.
