Re: Hangtown - from ron moore So is it going to be set in the real Hangtown (since renamed Placerville) in the Sierras? Early 1900s? Meh, all the fun is over by then. There are too many Westerns popping up all over. How about one drama set during the Civil War instead? Doesn't even have to be battle-focused if that blows the budget. Also, somebody should do a series or miniseries about the life of John C. Fremont. He was an interesting guy.
