Hulu has launched “Quick Draw,” a new improv/action/western/procedural/comedy (yes, it claims to be all these things) set in 19th century Kansas.
The series stars John Lehr and Nicholas Brown as a sheriff and deputy trying to bring forensic science to 1870s Kansas, to the town of Great Bend, which is made up of people who are generally unimpressed by new science.
Co-created and executive produced by Lehr alongside Nancy Hower (“10 Items or Less,” “Jailbait”), the half-hour comedy series also stars Robert Clendenin, Alison Dunbar, Ralph Garman, and Alexia Dox — all playing various types of local townspeople (or bad guys) who clash with Lehr’s Harvard-educated sheriff. Clendenin, Garman, and Dunbar are all comedy vets, with resumes that range from The Groundlings to “Cougar Town.”
“Quick Draw” is also co-executive produced by Keith Raskin (“Key & Peele,” “The League”).
Consisting of eight half-hour episodes, new episodes will be made available every Monday on Hulu and Hulu Plus.
