COMANCHE MOON on CBS – Pictures and Promo

COMANCHE MOON - Val Kilmer as Captain Inish Scull, Steve Zahn as Augustus “Gus” McCrae , Rachel Griffiths as Inish Scull, and Karl Urban as Woodrow F. Call on CBS

The wonderful CBS’ six hour mini-series event COMANCHE MOON is a must-watch. It premieres January 13th at 9pm on CBS and continues January 15th and 16th at 9pm as well.

I have already watch all three parts and was blown away by the performances and the quality of the mini-series. It is a great way to spend three nights of TV.

For now enjoy a promo and two pages of pictures from Comanche Moon below.

Synopsis: COMANCHE MOON – The prequel to McMurtry’s bestselling and Pulitzer Prize-winning book, “Lonesome Dove,” which was the basis for the multiple Emmy Award-winning mini-series “Lonesome Dove,” follows Texas Rangers Augustus “Gus” McCrae (Zahn) and Woodrow F. Call (Urban), now in their middle years, as they continue to deal with the ever-increasing tensions of adult life – Gus with his great love, Clara Forsythe (Cardellini), and Call with Maggie Tilton (Banks), the young prostitute who loves him and bears him his son, Newt (Joseph Castanon). Kilmer plays Captain Inish Scull, a Yankee aristocrat and hero of the recently concluded Mexican War. Griffiths plays Inez Scull, the Captain’s sexy wife who doesn’t hesitate to fill her time with other men when he’s away from home. Wes Studi plays Comanche Chief Buffalo Hump.

Two proud but very different men, McCrae and Call enlist with a Ranger troop in pursuit of three outlaws: Buffalo Hump, the great Comanche war chief; Kicking Wolf (Jonathon Joss, “Into the West”), the celebrated Comanche horse thief; and Ahumado (Sal Lopez, “The Astronaut Farmer”), a deadly Mexican bandit king with a penchant for torture. Assisting the Rangers in their wild chase is the renowned Kickapoo tracker Famous Shoes (David Midthunder, “Into the West”). They are joined by their comrades-in-arms, Deets (Keith Robinson, “Dreamgirls”), Jake Spoon (Ryan Merriman, “The Ring Two”) and Pea Eye Parker (Troy Baker, “Striking Range”), in the bitter struggle to protect an advancing western frontier against the defiant Comanches who are determined to defend their territory and their way of life. The Rangers also encounter Buffalo Hump’s violent outcast son, Blue Duck (Adam Beach, “Law & Order: Special Victims Unit”).
