|AMC is debuting a new series November 6, a tense drama "Hell on Wheels" set in post Civil War America. It may seem like a cliche, but one of the main characters is an ex-Confederate soldier bent on avenging the brutal rape and murder of his wife during the war. This story line definitely recalls the recent Civil War movie "Johnathan Hex" based on a graphic novel. Actually the similarity ends there.
Another main character, played by rapper Common, is an emancipated slave trying to make his way in the West. Of course, these two characters meet.
Both these men become involved with the building of the transcontinental railroad which provides a vital backdrop to the story, hence the name "Hell on Wheels."
The drama promises to be gripping and certainly will be if the producers' previous successes with "Breaking Bad" and "The Walking Dead" are any indication.
