The premise centers around a family mysteriously massacred on a ranch in 1880’s Wyoming, the latest in a killing spree terrorizing the territory, while a Scotswoman with clairvoyant powers must venture into the mountains on a life or death race.

“We’re very excited to bring complex and mysterious characters to life
through a woman’s story of endurance, hope and survival. Audiences are in
for a mesmerizing, action-packed series,” said executive producers Caron Carlyon ( Wild Oats, Render Me Dead ) and Jane Charles ( SOLD, Fat Kid Rules the World ). The development team has added Thane Swigart ( Furious Angel, John Frum ), as writer for the project.

Robin is certainly living the dream! It is also an indication of both the media’s shift toward women directed work and women driven story lines. Congratulations, Robin.
