Netflix takes on the wild west in Godless teaser

The first trailer has arrived for Netflix's six-episode Western series, Godless. And with a support cast rounded out by Jack O'Connell (Unbroken), Michelle Dockery (Downton Abbey), Kim Coates (Sons of Anarchy), Thomas Brodie-Sangster (Game of Thrones) and Scoot McNairy (Argo), I will definitely be checking this out when it premieres on Netflix on 22 November.

The teaser trailer welcomes you to "no-man's land" as a narrator ominously declares, "T'is a fearful thing to love what death can touch. Tis a human thing to love what death has touched".

Godless follows Frank Griffin (Jeff Daniels, bearded), an outlaw terrorizing the American West in the 1880s, and the continuation of Roy Goode (Jack O'connell), his former partner became the enemy.

Images flash of the stark life in the wild west, as the residents of La Belle - New Mexico mining town run nearly entirely by women - both celebrate life and mourn its losses, and Jeff Daniels' character gazes out against the great horizon. As he speaks in a voiceover, the teaser intercuts his words with images of survival and love, before turning to violence and brutality with his final words.

The seven-part limited series tells the story of well-known criminal Frank Griffin (Daniels) and his violent gang of outlaws who are thirsty for revenge against Roy Goode (O'Connell). Godless was created by Logan writer Scott Frank and is being executive produced by Steven Soderbergh and Casey Silver. While on the run, Roy seeks refuge with hardened widower Alice Fletcher (Michelle Dockery), an outcast herself, in a worn-down, isolated mining town of La Belle, New Mexico, governed mainly by women.
