INSP’s original series, Wild West Chronicles, brings to life the incredible, but true tales of the American West through the eyes of the people who lived it. Using classic storytelling, dramatized interviews, and reenactments, the series follows famous reporter and lawman, Bat Masterson, as he uncovers the most sensational stories of the day, separating the real-life events from the lore. Each half-hour episode showcases a new side to the story, focusing on the legends you love and ones you might not know about — the unsung heroes of the late 1800s. Wild West Chronicles proves that the Old West was wilder than you ever imagined.
Once a feared gunslinger and lawman, the legendary Bat Masterson trades his sheriff's badge for a pen to chase stories instead of outlaws. On a quest to separate the truth from fiction, Masterson travels the frontier to chronicle the little-known history behind some of the Old West's most memorable tales: Black cowboy Nat Love wins a competition in Deadwood and becomes a legend, rival silver mining companies take up arms and battle for five days 300 feet underground, husband-and-wife photographers C.S. and Mollie Fly take the last shot of the infamous Shootout at the O.K. Corral, and more. In every headline-grabbing tale, Masterson captures a bygone age when ruthless gunmen terrorized the frontier and fearless men and women stepped forward to bring law and order to the West.
