The series is an adaptation based on Elmore Leonard’s City Primeval: High Noon In Detroit novel.
“Justified: City Primeval” picks up with Givens eight years after he left Kentucky behind. He now lives in Miami, a walking anachronism balancing his life as a U.S. Marshal and part-time father of a 14-year-old girl Willa (who will be played by Olyphant’s real-life daughter Vivian). His hair is grayer, his hat is dirtier, and the road in front of him is suddenly a lot shorter than the road behind. A chance encounter on a desolate Florida highway sends him to Detroit. There he crosses paths with Clement Mansell, aka The Oklahoma Wildman, a violent, sociopathic desperado who’s already slipped through the fingers of Detroit’s finest once and aims to do so again. Mansell’s lawyer, formidable Motor City native Carolyn Wilder, has every intention of representing her client, even as she finds herself caught in between cop and criminal, with her own game afoot as well.
Aunjanue Ellis (King Richard), Boyd Holbrook (The Premise), Adelaide Clemens (The Great Gatsby), Vondie Curtis Hall (Harriet), Marin Ireland (Y: The Last Man), Norbert Leo Butz (Bloodline), Victor Williams (The Good Lord Bird), Vivian Olyphant and Ravi Patel (The Valet, Meet the Patels) also star.
Olyphant will exec producing alongside showrunners and writers Dave Andron and Michael Dinner and original creator Graham Yost. Dinner will direct the series.
Executive produces also include Sarah Timberman and Carl Beverly, Peter Leonard, Taylor Elmore, and Chris Provenzano, with Elmore and Provenzano also writing for the show. V.J. Boyd, Eisa Davis and Ingrid Escajeda are also writers.
The series is produced by Sony Pictures Television and FX Productions.
“Justified: City Primeval” is slated to premiere in Summer of 2023 however an exact release date has not been announced yet.
