Billed as "a seven-part epic western", Godless will see Daniels as a regular lead on a TV drama for the first time since the brilliant The Newsroom ended in 2014.

Netflix has dropped the first teaser for its new Wild West drama Godless today, giving us a sneak peek at what the seven-part series has in store when it launches next month.

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). Among them is a tough widow named Alice Fletcher (Michelle Dockery).

The Massachusetts-based Baystate Wealth Management has invested 0.09% in Procter & Gamble Co (NYSE:PG). Pritchard Capital maintained Procter & Gamble Co (NYSE:PG) on Wednesday, August 19 with "Sell" rating.

For Dockery, the longtime star of the early-20 century aristocratic United Kingdom television hit, Downton Abbey, Godless is the just latest in a series of type-cast-smashing roles, coupled with her starring run as a cunning thief on the TBS crime series, Good Behavior (which returns for Season 2 on October 22), along with film roles in the 2017 mystery drama The Sense of an Ending, the 2015 Ryan Reynolds-starring sci-fi film Self/Less and the 2014 Liam Neeson-on-a-plane actioner Non-Stop. Written and directed by Scott Frank, screenwriter of Minority Report and Logan or a director of a Walk among the tombs, the mini-series of six episodes will be available in full on Netflix on the 22nd November next. He previously worked with Frank on "Out of Sight".

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.
