The series is set to star Josh Duhamel (“Transformers”), Minka Kelly (“Euphoria”), James Brolin (“Sweet Tooth”), Eoin Macken (“La Brea”), Lizzy Greene (“A Million Little Things”), Marianly Tejada (“One of Us is Lying”), Jack Schumacher (“Top Gun: Maverick”), Garrett Wareing (“Manifest”), Andrew Liner (“Vampire Academy”), Jaren Robledo (“Rez Ball”), Casey W.

Set against the rugged expanse of Texas Hill Country, “Ransom Canyon” tells the story of the intersecting lives of three ranching families. The first two episodes will be directed by Amanda Marsalis (“Ozark”). April Blair (“Wednesday”) wrote, created, and will executive produce the series.
