More Limelight For Laredo

Another one jumps in.
Next comes Laredo, another crime drama from Flags of Our Fathers writer William Broyles who will also executive produce the new series which is set at the Texas/Mexico border, and should be much more dramatic than the recent border showdown on South Park. There’s yet to be a modern series tackling the idea of immigration in a dramatic context like this, and FX seems to be one of the best places outside of pay cable channels and AMC for some really hard-htting drama.
Not that I have any say in this, but I would really like to see either Nick Nolte, Mickey Rourke, or Gary Busey play a part in the series.  Perhaps they could be cast as a sheriff or rancher or something else.
