Current tv series, "Justified: City Primeval"

An 8-part series on the FX channel that revives an old Elmore Leonard character, Raylan Givens, from a previous 5-year series, "Justified". Tim Olyphant reprises his character. It's a dark series with all of the seedy goodies.

The sequel is set in Detroit, but shows a city that I can imagine Detroit wanted no part of. It was filmed in Chicago and in a Chicago studio. The Detroit it portrays resembles one that harks back to Purple Gang days, combined with corruption, thug cops, post-60's racism, and rundown filthy settings.

But in Leonard fashion, the bad guy, Boyd Holbrook, is really bad. He's the real star of this series, making the queasy thing worth watching. He's connected to a lot of convoluted loose ends, which so far, have not come together. I've seen 6 of the 8 parts. A weak point is Givens's 15-year old daughter, played by Olyphant's real daughter who is actually 20 years old. It doesn't fit well.

Leonard was a crime/detecvtive novel writer who lived in Detroit.
