  • show Description
  • Based on Walt Longmire Mystery series of novels by Craig Johnson, Longmire also is named after its central character, Walt Longmire, the local sheriff in rural Wyoming. As the series starts, Longmire has been widowed for a year and, still in pain, hides behind a brave face and dry wit. After his wife's death, he dragged himself into the office but his heart wasn't really in the job. He knows it's time to turn his life around and with the help of his daughter, Cady, and his deputy, Vic, he revives his interest in his job and decides to give his all to his re-election campaign. Victoria "Vic" Moretti is the newest addition to the sheriff's office. She was a Philadelphia homicide detective for five years before relocating to Wyoming. While adjusting to how to deal with the locals, Vic is out to prove she's not a rookie. She has a deep connection with Longmire along with her playful attitude and he allows her to be his most trusted deputy. Longmire's lifelong best friend and close confidant is Henry Standing Bear, the owner of the local bar. Henry is often Walt's go-between with the reservation. Unlike Longmire, Henry embraces progress and the trappings of the modern world while holding a close connection with his past. Another one of Longmire's deputies is ambitious go-getter Branch Connally. He's motivated more by political aspirations than his work as a deputy. He thinks Longmire's stuck in the past and wants the department to have the technology that most other law enforcement agencies use. It's his umbrage towards Walt's outdated methods that pushes him to run for sheriff. Longmire's only child is daughter, Cady Longmire, an attorney who dreams of practicing law in a big city. With the death of her mother, Cady has stayed to help Walt get his life back together. She isn't afraid to tell her father like it is, and it's this straight talk and sense of humor that makes their connection strong. Longmire's third deputy is The Ferg who has a heart of gold. He's loyal and well meaning and always eager to please. The Ferg can hunt and fix most anything but he's not much of an investigator. Longmire is produced by The Shephard/Robin Company in association with Warner Horizon Television. Hunt Baldwin and John Coveny wrote the pilot and serve as executive producers along with Greer Shephard and Michael M. Robin. The series stars Australian actor Robert Taylor as Walt Longmire, along with Katee Sackhoff, Lou Diamond Phillips, Bailey Chase, Cassidy Freeman and newcomer Adam Bartley.moreless

    Trivia (7)

    • The scene where Walt's Bronco flipped involved two Bronco's, one with a stunt man who drove into a fence and off the road and one that was built on a pulley system mounted on a sled. Robert Taylor (Longmire) was harnessed into the Bronco while director of photography Cameron Duncan sat in an apple box at the very back. There were four cameras working: one look one looking down on Taylor from the driver's window, one mounted on the fender, another mounted inside the vehicle just over his shoulder, and Duncan operated another handheld camera to create the illusion that the Bronco had rolled onto its side. Taylor, Duncan and stunt coordinator Chris Howell rode the Bronco sled for 50-70 yards down an incline. The entire setup stirred up a lot of dust which a cloud of smoke inside the vehicle.

    • At the beginning of the episode when Walt drives up to meet Vic you see a herd of elk race across the road in front of Walt's Bronco. The elk weren't incidental, first assistant director O'Mahoney hiked a quarter mile into the woods to find a herd of elk. As the truck drove down the road, the assistant director located the herd and spooked them toward the road. So a combination of good timing and good luck got the herd and the Bronco in the right place at the right time to get it all in one shot.

    • At the end of the episode, as Walt is driving Samuel home, the young man suddenly jumps from the truck. This stunt was performed by stuntman Logan Holladay. Logan was joined by actor Brian Norris, who played Samuel, in the scenes where the young man is running alongside the Bronco.

    • The strip club for Vic's scene was full of mirrors which helped give the shot depth. But three cameras shooting simultaneously plus mirrors everywhere meant production had to be sure a crew member wasn't caught in the shot. Everyone on set not meant to be seen was wearing black to make them "invisible". The scene was shot at night so the bright light seen when Longmire enters the club isn't sunlight but a humungous light.

    • After a lot of discussion as to whether the production team would shoot the rodeo scenes at an actual rodeo, or create a rodeo themselves, the decision was made to make their own rodeo from scratch. Directory of Photoraphy Cameron Duncan stated, "Our stunt coordinator Chris Howell and animal trainer Cody Smith did an amazing job in recreating the rodeo. Howell is a former bronc rider, so this episode was tailor made for him. That shooting day was the one day that spooked the production the most because we had so many elements; background players, animals, stunts, etc. In the end the crew and department keys came prepared and we killed it. I'm recalling the stunt man for Shawn Hatosy was able to land in the same spot once he was bucked from the bronco."

    • For the shoots at the Sublette home, the crew used a combination of art that actually belonged to the homeowners, and pieces brought in by production designer Robb Wilson King. In order to keep things tidy, the crew was required to wear "booties" while working in the home. Director of Photography Cameron Duncan said, "It was like shooting in a modern art museum; a bit nerve-racking."

    • Discrepancy: Ferg makes reference to Vic leaving Walt at 11,000 feet. The tree line, or point at which trees aren't capable of growing, in Wyoming is around 10,000 feet so the scene shouldn't have had any trees in it. The mountain scenes were filmed in the New Mexico Red River Valley at about 11,000 feet. This area's tree line is around 13,000 feet thus the tree filled scenes.
