“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.
