GET TO KNOW LIFE IN JERICHO! 

A British western set in the Yorkshire Dales in the 1870s, this drama takes place in the shantytown of Jericho, home to a community that will live, thrive and die in the shadow of the viaduct they’ve been brought together to build.

In case you needed a reason to tune in to WLRN-TV Monday nights at 9 beginning March 20th for the hottest drama on television, we've got several really good ones...

 A WESTERN TOLD FROM A WOMAN'S PERSPECTIVE
