"Quick Draw": Funny Frontier Justice

Sneak Peek footage, images and synopsis, from the new 'Old West' comedy series "Quick Draw", starring writer, actor John Lehr as 'John Henry Hoyle', a new sheriff in the 1875 Kansas town of 'Great Bend', premiering August 5, 2013 on Hulu.

Not since TV's "F Troop" and Mel Brooks' "Blazing Saddles" has there been an attempt at a film parody of the 'cowboy' genre, as Lehr satirizes "Deadwood" with the forensic procedures of "CSI":

"...a 'Harvard' graduate who studied forensic science, as well as being a remarkably good shot, 'Sheriff Hoyle' (Lehr) is also kind of a dummy, in a hilarious way. 

"Joined by a cast of characters that includes 'Deputy Eli Brocias' (Nicholas Brown), a madam/saloon-owner named 'Honey Shaw' (Allison Dunbar), and a hodgepodge of colorful locals, outlaws, and ladies of the night, Sheriff Hoyle is tasked with bringing law and order to 'Great Bend'...

"...earning the respect of the townspeople, all of whom are betting against him..."

Cast also includes Bob Clendenin as 'Vernon Shank', Alexia Dox as 'Pearl', David Hoffman as 'Clay Tidwell' and Tasha Ames as 'Livinia Webb'.
