Description

Justified is an American crime drama television series developed for television by Graham Yost and based on the fictional character Raylan Givens, a U.S. Marshal, from Elmore Leonard's novels Pronto and Riding the Rap, and his short story Fire in the Hole.

The series is set in the city of Lexington, Kentucky and the hill country of Eastern Kentucky, specifically in and around Harlan. Timothy Olyphant stars as the tough, sexy, southern-bred but soft-spoken federal lawman, enforcing his own brand of, at times, extralegal justice.

Justified is the story of Deputy U.S. Marshal Raylan Givens (Timothy Olyphant), a true-blue hero and something of a throwback, given to wearing a Stetson and cowboy boots, carrying his sidearm in a hip holster – a weapon he only draws when he has to, and when he does he shoots to kill, because, as he sees it, that's the purpose of a gun.

Raylan was born and reared in the hill country of eastern Kentucky. It was in Harlan where he played ball, chased girls and dug coal. And it was from Harlan, at age 19, that he ran, determined to become a U.S. Marshal.

Now, years later, after shooting a gun thug in a Miami hotel and thereby incurring the wrath of his Marshals Service superiors, Raylan has been sent in punishment (and by fate?) to the one place to which he vowed he would never return – Kentucky.

The character of Deputy U.S. Marshal Raylan Givens was created by America's pre-eminent crime novelist Elmore Leonard (Get Shorty, Out of Sight) and is played by Timothy Olyphant.

The Chief Deputy of the Lexington U.S.M.S. office is Art Mullen, played by Nick Searcy. Working alongside Raylan are fellow deputies Tim Gutterson (Jacob Pitts) – and Rachel Brooks (Erica Tazel).

Raylan, Art and the other deputies do what all U.S. Marshals do – chase down fugitives, protect witnesses, transport prisoners.

But, being back in Kentucky, Raylan will also have to confront a past crowded with enough skeletons to choke a graveyard.

There's his old friend and fellow coal-miner, now fugitive bank-robber, Boyd Crowder (Walton Goggins). There's Ava Crowder (Joelle Carter), the cheerleader from his youth he always had a crush on; and ex-wife Winona Hawkins (Natalie Zea).

And, looming largest of all in Raylan's past, there's his career criminal father Arlo (Raymond Barry).

Justified was developed for series television by Executive Producers Graham Yost, Michael Dinner, Sarah Timberman, Carl Beverly and Elmore Leonard. The series comes from FX Productions and Sony Pictures Television.
