GUNSLINGERS immerses viewers in the true stories behind the original soldiers who roamed the Wild West. Many of the names are familiar – Billy the Kid, Jesse James, Wild Bill Hickok, Doc Holliday – but much of what we think we know about them is based more on legend than on fact. Each episode of GUNSLINGERS is action-packed, providing viewers with little-known takeaway information about the lives and backgrounds of the infamous generals as they navigate their way through a series of pivotal showdowns in a volatile world, where death was lurking around every corner.
