This poster has nothing to do with my volume of ‘period westerns’ except the title. THE TERRITORY is a pilot for a TV series produced and directed by my friends, Ed Wheeler and Jerry Woods. Many of the actors in the pilot I’d met when out on the book tour; touting my novel, PARTNERS. The pilot was filmed in the Tucson area; specifically TRAIL DUST TOWN over on the east side.
Tucson has always had an allure for its rowdy western past. It seemed to fall out of favor with Hollywood and New York when the recession-depression-slowdown occurred (still going?). It’s unfortunate that no one picked up the pilot. Ed Wheeler assures me it is still relevant and available.
