Justified (formerly known as Lawman[2]) is an American television drama series created by Graham Yost based on the popular character U.S. Marshal Raylan Givens featured in books, Pronto and Riding the Rap, and a short story, "Fire in the Hole," by Edgar Award winning author Elmore Leonard.[3] Givens is a tough, southern-bred but soft-spoken federal lawman, enforcing his brand of justice that conflicts with both sides of the law.[3]

The pilot was shot in Pittsburgh and suburban Kittaning, Pennsylvania and Washington, Pennsylvania with the subsequent 12 episodes having shot in California. Pittsburgh's David L. Lawrence Convention Center appears on film as the small town "airport" and the construction of the new Consol Energy Center serves as the "new courthouse".[1] Justified is set for a March 16, 2010, premiere on FX.[3][4] In Canada, Justified can be seen on Super Channel starting April 5, 2010.[5] The series is set in the hill country of Eastern Kentucky. Some are calling it the modern day Deadwood.[6]

Premise

The series is about U.S. Marshal Raylan Givens, a 19th century-style but modern-day officer based in Florida, who enforces his brand of justice to put a target on his back with criminals and puts him at odds with his bosses in the Marshal service. As a result, he gets reassigned to the district covering his rural Eastern Kentucky mining hometown of Harlan County.
