BILLY THE KID EPIC SERIES
FROM TUDORS CREATOR FINDS THE LEAD TO PLAY BILLY
But he ain't called Billy but Tom Blyth and he will lead new historical adventure BILLY THE KID, an eight part Wild West drama coming from
The Tudors and Vikings creator Michael Hirst. To be directed by Otto Bathurst and air on Epix, the series is described as an epic romantic adventure based on the life of Billy the Kid, also known as William H. Bonney, from his humble Irish roots and his early days as a cowboy and gunslinger in the American frontier, to his pivotal role in the Lincoln County War and beyond. Billy is a young man with a modest demeanor and a civility and restraint in his nature, despite being the legendary outlaw, Billy the Kid. He’s an impressive sure-shot whose gun hand seems to move faster than the eye can see, but he gets no joy from killing, feeling he’s more sinned against than sinning.
