I'm no fan of westerns, but I would imagine doing one today would be easier than a new Sci-Fi series.
Wow RandyS when you put it like that you are so right.
Based on the discussion of just the Poll: What channel should a new Trek TV series be on? thread that covers many reasons why scifi on television is a risky venture by TV channels obsessed with Nielsen ratings instead of creating a series like HBO does and air the entire series.

I guess I'll have to settle for the every two or three years a Hollywood feature film Western that gets released in August instead of TV like
Open Range (2003)
3:10 to Yuma (2007) [remake]
The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford (2007)
There Will Be Blood (2007)

I think I'd rather see a mini-series though than a big-screen feature to be honest. Allow the characters more development time rather than planning for the big climax.
