AMC greenlights Dark Winds from George R.R. Martin and Robert Redford, starring Zahn McClarnon and Kiowa Gordon

The Western noir thriller series based on Tony Hillerman's Leaphorn & Chee book series has been picked up for AMC and AMC+. It stars McClarnon and Gordon as Navajo Tribal Police Officers Joe Leaphorn and Jim Chee, respectively, "in the 1970s Southwest, as their search for clues in a grisly double murder case forces them to challenge their own spiritual beliefs and come to terms with the trauma of their pasts." Created by Graham Roland, Dark Winds will be executive produced by Martin and Redford, who turned two of the Leaphorn & Chee books into the movies The Dark Wind and Skinwalkers.
