“Damnation,” the Depression-era drama from University of Arkansas graduate and “Longmire” writer Tony Tost and “Hell or High Water” director David Mackenzie, has been ordered to series by the USA Network, and is expected to premiere in October. Netflix, now a co-producer of the series, has obtained first-run rights outside the United States. Tost, whose first book of poetry received a 2003 Walt Whitman Award (judged by the late Arkansas poet C.D. Wright), is also the author of the 33 1/3 book series’ treatise “Johnny Cash’s American Recordings.” Along with James Mangold (director of “Walk the Line”) Guymon Casady (“Game of Thrones” producer) and Daniel Rappaport (“Office Space” producer), Tost will executive produce the series.

  • Review and slideshow: Chris Stapleton and Marty Stuart at Verizon Arena

    Don't get me wrong: Chris Stapleton is wildly accomplished and in complete command of his voice. He’s probably the closest thing, vocally, that we have to Chris Cornell on this earth, but somewhere there must be an unwritten rule that the headliner is to be afforded the luxury of a superboosted presence; something that lets the audience know, as I knew when my entire body began to rumble seismically upon his grand entrance, that things were cranking up to eleven, that we were “really gonna party now.”
