First Look Photos of FRONTIER, Jason Momoa's Bloody New Netflix Series
A few months ago, Netflix announced that one of its many new 2016 projects would be a series called Frontier, a western with Game of Thrones and Aquaman star Jason Momoa in the lead role. The show will have six hour-long episodes in its first season, which will be directed (at least partially) by San Andreas helmer Brad Peyton. Here's the description:
“[Frontier is] an action-packed adventure drama following the chaotic and violent struggle to control wealth and power in the North American fur trade in the late 18th century. Told from multiple perspectives, the series takes place in a world where business negotiations might be resolved with close-quarter hatchet fights, and where delicate relations between Native tribes and Europeans can spark bloody conflicts.”
EW has two first look photos from the production, which is currently filming in Canada. Momoa co-stars alongside Alun Armstrong (Braveheart), Landon Liboiron (Hemlock Grove), and Zoe Boyle (Downton Abbey). The outlet doesn't really offer any new information aside from Momoa's character's name (Declan Harp), but seeing the actor decked out in period garb like this definitely has me more excited about this show. I'm really looking forward to this one; I feel like it has a lot of potential, and could get buried among the loads of other content coming out on streaming services this year. I'll try to make a point to check it out as soon as it premieres and let you know how it turns out. Stay tuned, because we'll definitely share trailers and a release date as soon as they become available.
