The series stars David Oyelowo in the title role and explores Reeves' journey as a legendary lawman of the Wild West.
Reeves is widely credited with being the inspiration for The Lone Ranger, according to History.com.

The series explores the challenges and triumphs of Reeves' life as he navigates a racially divided society.
The show sheds light on an overlooked hero in American history and highlights the contributions of Black lawmen during the Wild West era.
"Lawmen: Bass Reeves" promises to be a captivating and historically significant series that showcases the resilience and bravery of a remarkable individual.
