Re: a new Western as a TV episodic series? discuss

I would like to see an episodic Western made.

I agree with the opinion below....

Possible, yes. Too expensive for networks to bother with? Definitely.
I think the show would have to be presented with a multi-generational cast (ala Dallas and Falcon Crest) for it to appeal to a wide audience/make money/get the ratings.

Unfortunately, the days of those type of primetime shows being made (soaps in the examples above) are almost over IMO.

FX's "Justified" is about as close to an old-fashioned Western as you're going to get right now.
I was going to mention "Justified". Despite the modern slant on the show (and it taking place in fictional Kentucky), I get a "western" vibe from it at times. I like the show.
