The Son: First Look Photos of Pierce Brosnan and the Cast of AMC Period Drama

Joel Keller

Here is a first look at the cast of the new AMC drama The Son, premiering in the spring of 2017. The ten-episode drama, based on a best-selling novel, is the 150-year story about three generations of the McCullough family.

Eli McCullough (Pierce Brosnan) builds a Texas oil and ranching empire after losing everything on the Western frontier. Of course, Texas oil empires weren't built in those without a lot of ruthlessness, power-grabs and violence, and the drama explores how Eli transformed to build that empire and how that transformation reverberated through the generations.

Pictures of the cast, including Brosnan, are in the gallery above.
