Netflix‘s Frontier (2016) TV show trailer stars Jason Momoa, Landon Liboiron, Zoe Boyle, Christian McKay, and Evan Jonigkeit. Frontier‘s plot synopsis: “The series is an action-packed adventure drama following the chaotic and violent struggle to control wealth and power in the North American fur trade in the late 18th century. Told from multiple perspectives, the series takes place in a world where business negotiations might be resolved with close-quarter hatchet fights, and where delicate relations between Native tribes and Europeans can spark bloody conflicts. Declan Harp, a part-Irish, part-native American[, is an] outlaw campaigning to breach the fur trade.”
This trailer is pretty intense, both in the action that transpires and in the sexual violence that begins to transpire before tastefully cutting away. This trailer immediately reminded me of Tom Hardy‘s Taboo TV series. Both series deal with an individual that is no strangers to violence or the violent world that they live in. Unlike Tom Hardy’s character, Jason Momoa’s character is being chased by the authorities for multiple murders (some of whom are shown in the trailer).
Gritty TV shows are becoming more numerous. Television is just a better, more long-form way of telling compelling narratives. That is why so many A-list actors and actresses are migrating to the television medium.
