AMC has released a trailer for the Robert Redford and George R.R. Martin-produced Western noir series Dark Winds.
Set in the 1970s, Dark Winds centers on two detectives, Leaphorn (Zahn McClarnon) and Chee (Kiowa Gordon), who are tasked with finding a murderer behind multiple homicides.
Yet nothing is as it seems as the case takes a turn towards the spiritual.
Creator Graham Roland adapted the six-episode limited series based on the detective novels by Tony Hillerman. Star McClarnon is also executive producing, along with George R. R. Martin and Robert Redford.
Martin expanded beyond his Game Of Thrones universe with the new series, while Redford has previously produced two other screen adaptations of the Leaphorn & Chee novels.
Here’s the trailer:
The official series description reads:
“Set in 1971 on a remote outpost of the Navajo Nation near Monument Valley, Dark Winds follows Lieutenant Joe Leaphorn (Zahn McClarnon) of the Tribal Police as he is besieged by a series of seemingly unrelated crimes. The closer he digs to the truth, the more he exposes the wounds of his past. He is joined on this journey by his new deputy, Jim Chee (Kiowa Gordon). Chee, too, has old scores to settle from his youth on the reservation. Together, the two men battle the forces of evil, each other and their own personal demons on the path to salvation.”
Production wrapped in New Mexico in late 2021. Dark Winds debuts on AMC amid the respective finales of The Walking Dead, Better Call Saul, and Killing Eve, and leads the new slate of AMC programming alongside 61st Street and Moonhaven.
Dark Winds premieres June 12th on AMC.
