The collection was green-lit by the cable community in April of 2018, after having been in improvement since 2015. Not lengthy after receiving the inexperienced gentle, the challenge rapidly started the method of casting its major roles, and getting the writers’ room beneath Jamie O’Brien (Hell on Wheels, Flesh and Bone) staffed up.
