    I saw a commercial for a new tv series called "Peacemakers" that will air on USA network starting July 30. All I know from the brief commercial I saw. Was that Tom plays some sort of lawman in the old west. It looked interesting from what I saw. Does anyone know anything more about this show? I checked the USA channel website and found nothing.

    Here's USA's press release on the subject (slightly old):

    Every Crime Leaves A Trail ... Forensic Investigation Is Born in USA
    Network's Original Western Series Peacemakers Premiering This Summer

    Starring Tom Berenger and Peter O'Meara

    LOS ANGELES, April 4 /PRNewswire/ -- USA Network announced today a
    pick-up of the original western series Peacemakers. The two-hour
    back-door pilot will premiere in July 2003, followed by eight one-
    hour weekly episodes.
    The Western Frontier is disappearing as encroaching civilization
    and the industrial age meet in 1882. Nowhere is the clash of the old
    and new more evident than in law enforcement. With the advent of
    such innovations as fingerprinting and photography, modern police
    investigation is born.
    Peacemakers revolves around the often contentious relationship
    between a grizzled, middle-aged Federal Marshall played by Tom
    Berenger (Platoon, Major League) and his cocky young deputy played by
    Peter O'Meara (Band of Brothers), who is a former Pinkerton agent
    from Chicago with a degree from Yale and a wagonload of forensic
    equipment.
    Peacemaker's two-hour pilot is completed and the production of
    the eight new episodes will begin in May 2003. Rick Ramage
    (Stigmata, Haunted) is the writer/executive producer and the
    director/co- executive producer is Larry Carroll (Brimstone, The
    Huntress). Michael R. Joyce (USA's Attila, Atomic Train) serves as
    producer. The production company is Michael R. Joyce Productions,
    Inc.

    Sad that this guy went from A list star in such movies as Platoon and The Big Chill to doing this.
    Cross CSI with The wild West and what do you get??
    The Peacemakers.
