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).

Odinga on Tuesday suspended a protest campaign to push for reforms after three people were shot dead in demonstrations. Akombe said that she had questioned her role at the commission for many months, but had "soldiered on".

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.
