Deadwood, South Dakota was a hot-bed of criminal activity in 1876, a few weeks after Custer's defeat at Little Big Horn. Seth Bullock, drawn by the largest gold strike in American history, is hoping to make a new life for himself in Deadwood. He arrives in Deadwood about the same time as ex-lawman, Wild Bill Hickock. Both men find their lives intertwined with Al Swearengen, self-appointed boss of Deadwood, as well as the throngs of prostitutes, gun-fighters, and racketeers that swarmed to Deadwood.
