Plot Synopsis

ELKHORN is a one-hour drama series that tells the stories of Theodore Roosevelt's days on the Western frontier. Valentine's Day, 1884, turned unbearably tragic for Roosevelt when his beloved wife died giving birth to their first child and, several hours later and in the same household, his mother died from Typhoid fever. Season 1 was inspired by Roosevelt's first months in the Badlands of the Dakota Territory where he struggled to establish ELKHORN, the ranch for which the series is named. Throughout the season, confronted with numerous challenges, he disarms a barroom bully, faces down hired guns, tracks down horse thieves, and kills a grizzly bear, all while forming lifelong friendships and transforming himself from a frail and grieving widower into the man who will be forever identified as "The Cowboy President." In the series opener, "The Greenhorn," after suffering a great personal loss, 25-year-old Theodore Roosevelt abandons New York for the Dakota Badlands; along the way, he faces doubters and killers as he attempts to establish the Elkhorn Ranch and remake himself into a cattleman.
On Thursday, June 13, 2024 at 9pm ET/PT, Inspiration premiered "A Man for All Seasons," the season finale of ELKHORN. When a lightning strike spooks the herd, an injured Theodore Roosevelt acts quickly to stop a stampede during the fall roundup; back in town, the annual roundup dance brings the community together, friend and foe alike.
