During its initial run, Deadwood, the western drama set in the lawless town of Deadwood, North Dakota during the 1870s was consistently lauded by critics and cultivated a loyal fan base.

We spoke to Location Manager Jesse Lorber to peek behind the scenes of one of the most anticipated revivals of the year.

I worked in various jobs in the natural resources field after I graduated from college. That eventually led to a job as a realty specialist for the Kootenai National Forest based in the small logging town of Libby, Montana.
