  • Tost on the set of A&E's "Longmire."

USA Network has ordered a pilot episode of “Damnation,” a drama set in 1930s Iowa written by Tony Tost, a University of Arkansas graduate who writes for A&E Network’s “Longmire.” The drama’s central character, Seth Davenport, masquerades as a preacher to stir up opposition to industrialist tycoons. Tost, who received a 2003 Walt Whitman Award (judged by the late Arkansas poet C.D. Wright), is the author of the 33 1/3 book series’ treatise “Johnny Cash’s American Recordings.”
