The City Different snagged another Netflix production.

The series, “Godless,” is a limited TV series and began production this month.

According to the New Mexico Film Office, the large scale production will employ approximately 280 New Mexico crew members, 30 New Mexico principal actors and 2,350 New Mexico background talent.

This six-episode period drama is set to premiere worldwide on Netflix in 2017 and is set in the expansive landscape of the great western frontier and, as previously announced, stars Emmy Award-winner Jeff Daniels, Emmy and Golden Globe nominated Michelle Dockery and Jack O’Connell.

The series centers around Frank Griffin (Jeff Daniels), a menacing outlaw who is terrorizing the West as he hunts down Roy Goode (Jack O’Connell), his son-like partner turned mortal enemy.

While Roy hides at Alice Fletcher’s (Michelle Dockery) ranch, Frank’s chase leads him to the quiet town of La Belle, which, mysteriously, is made up entirely of women.

Joining the cast are Scoot McNairy as Bill McNue, the aging sheriff of La Belle; Sam Waterston as Marshal John Cook, the law in Santa Fe and on the hunt for Griffin; Kim Coates as Ed Logan, an arrogant and abrasive company man who comes into La Belle; Samantha Soule as Charlotte Temple, one of the more nervous and traditional ladies of the town; Audrey Moore as Sarah Doyle, a randy woman in her 30s dying for a man’s company; Christiane Seidel as Martha, a mysterious German woman who raises some suspicion; Randy Oglesby as Asa Leopold, one of the only surviving men and runs the dry goods store; Justin Welborn as Floyd Wilson, the skillful tracker in Griffin’s gang of outlaws; Christopher Fitzgerald as J.J. Valentine, the smooth talking president of the Quicksilver Mining Company looking to take over the mine in La Belle; and Whitney Abe as Anna McNue, the beloved and late wife of Sheriff Bill McNue.

Steven Soderbergh, Scott Frank and Casey Silver are executive producers, and Frank serves as both writer and director on the project.
