"Wild West Chronicles"

Sometimes you need a legend to uncover the truth behind other legends.

That is the arresting premise of Wild West Chronicles, an ingenious amalgamation of drama and documentary set to kick off a 15-episode run at 5:30 pm ET/4:30 pm CT Sunday, April 11, on INSP.

The series cleverly imagines a series of assignments for Bat Masterson in the late 1880s, after the Old West lawman had reinvented himself as a New York-based newspaper reporter and columnist. Each week, Masterson (played by Jack Elliott) returns to the West to gather material and conduct interviews for in-depth, up-close profiles of such notables as Wild Bill Hickok, Bass Reeves, Annie Oakley, Butch Cassidy, Stagecoach Mary and Emmett Dalton. From these first-hand accounts, he aims to gather facts that often are stranger, and wilder, than fiction.
