FX drama series, Justified, is based on the works of crime novelist Elmore Leonard. In the series, main character Deputy U.S. Marshal Raylan Givens is something of a 19th century-style officer in modern times. His unconventional enforcement of justice makes him a target with criminals and a problem for his superiors in the U.S. Marshals Service. As a result of a controversial but "justified" shooting of a mob hit-man in Miami, Givens is reassigned from Florida to Lexington, Kentucky, a district that includes Harlan County, a rural mining area in the east of the state, where Raylan was born and raised. In Kentucky, Givens is a tough federal lawman, enforcing his own brand of (at times extralegal) justice.
