Set in an ungoverned stretch of South Dakota soon after the bloody 1876 Custer massacre, Deadwood concerns a lawless, boom town attracting fortune-seekers, drifters, tyrants, and burned-out adventurers searching for a card game, a lucrative mining claim, and perhaps even a place to die. Others, particularly women trapped in prostitution, sundry do-gooders, and hangers-on have nowhere else to go. Into this pool of chaotic aspiration and nightmare arrives the ruthless George Randolph Hearst to operate the Homestake Mine, second largest gold mine in the United States at the time. This gritty, no-holds-barred re-enactment of life and death in the historic mining town will have you picking your jaw up off the floor. No law. No rules. Nowhere to hide - and more bad men than good.
