DESCRIPTION:
(from AMC's press release, January 2017) Based on Philipp Meyer's New York Times best-selling and Pulitzer Prize finalist novel, "The Son" will air on AMC and SundanceTV beginning Saturday, April 8th with a two-hour premiere at 9:00 p.m. ET/PT. Both networks will air all episodes from season one. The ten-episode, one-hour drama is a sweeping family saga spanning 150 years and three generations of the McCullough family. The series traces the transformation of Eli McCullough (Pierce Brosnan), the charismatic family patriarch, from good-natured innocent to calculating killer. He loses everything on the wild frontier, setting him on the path to building a ranching-and-oil dynasty of unsurpassed wealth and privilege. Eli's eldest son Pete (Henry Garrett), has grown up in his father's shadow and struggles to make him proud while forging his own identity. Pete's strong-willed daughter, Jeannie (Sydney Lucas) idolizes her grandfather and despite being raised in a male-dominated world, rejects her fate of existing solely to marry and bear children. Eli's ruthlessness pits him against his wealthy Spanish neighbor, Pedro Garcia (Carlos Bardem) and his quest for power triggers consequences that span generations. Shared through a series of flashbacks, "The Son" pulls viewers into the world of young Eli McCullough (Jacob Lofland) and his father figure, Comanche war chief, Toshaway (Zahn McClarnon) and deftly explores the McCullough's rise to become one the most powerful family dynasties in Texas.
