Description

Longmire is an American crime drama police procedural television series created by John Coveny and Hunt Baldwin and based on the "Walt Longmire" series of mystery novels written by best-selling author Craig Johnson which follows Walt Longmire, the Sheriff of the fictional Absaroka County, Wyoming, as he returns to work following the death of his wife.

With the help of his daughter Cady, his new deputy Vic and his best friend Henry, Walt must investigate a series of major crimes in his jurisdiction while preparing to run for re-election against Branch, a young deputy in the department who wants Walt's job.

The series stars Australian actor Robert Taylor (The Matrix) as Walt Longmire, the charismatic, dedicated and unflappable sheriff of Absaroka County, Wyoming, along with Katee Sackhoff (Battlestar Galactica), Lou Diamond Phillips (Numb3rs), Bailey Chase (Damages), Cassidy Freeman (Smallville) and newcomer Adam Bartley.

Widowed only a year, Longmire is a man in psychic repair that buries his pain behind a brave face and dry wit. Struggling since his wife's death and at the urging of his daughter, Cady (Freeman), Longmire knows that the time has come to turn his life around.

With the help of Vic (Sackhoff), a female deputy new to the department, he becomes reinvigorated about his job and committed to running for re-election.

When Branch (Chase), an ambitious, young deputy decides to run against him for sheriff, Longmire feels betrayed but remains steadfast in his dedication to the community.

Longmire often turns to close friend and confidant Henry Standing Bear (Diamond Phillips) for support as he sets out to rebuild both his personal and professional life, one step at a time.

Longmire is produced by The Shephard/Robin Company in association with Warner Horizon Television. Hunt Baldwin (The Closer, Trust Me) and John Coveny (The Closer, Trust Me) wrote the pilot and serve as executive producers along with Greer Shephard (The Closer, Nip/Tuck) and Michael M. Robin (The Closer, Nip/Tuck).

Christopher Chulack (Southland, ER) served as director and executive producer of the pilot.
