[I know McCabe was set in the US Northwest and not Alaska] "Discovery Channel is going into the scripted biz. The cabler is working with Scott Free TV (The Good Wife) and writer Paul Scheuring (Prison Break) on its first-ever scripted miniseries titled Klondike, which is based on Charlotte Grays novel Gold Diggers: Striking It Rich in the Klondike. The tome is about six strangers and their collective fight for survival and wealth in a small, frontier town." Set in the late 1890's. Also sounds a bit Deadwoodish. Ridley Scott is exec-producer, so that's a big plus.
