The Netflix streaming series Godless will debut online on November 22.

This seven-part epic western focuses on notorious criminal Frank Griffin (Jeff Daniels from The Newsroom) and his gang of outlaws, who are on a mission of revenge against Roy Goode (Jack O’Connell from Unbroken), a son-like protégé who betrayed the brotherhood. While on the run, Roy seeks refuge with hardened widower Alice Fletcher (Michelle Dockery from Downton Abbey and Good Behavior), an outcast herself, in a worn-down, isolated mining town of La Belle, NM — governed mainly by women. When word reaches La Belle that Griffin is headed their way, the town bands together to defend against the murderous gang in a lawless western frontier.

The cast includes Kim Coates (Sons of Anarchy), Scoot McNairy (Halt and Catch Fire), Sam Waterston (Law & Order) and Merritt Wever (Nurse Jackie)
