    The San Francisco gold rush series will be directed and co-written by Mel Gibson, with Kurt Russell and Kate Hudson set to star.for the Mark Gordon Co.

    Gibson also will have a recurring role on the series.

    Not based on the 1975 ABC spy western series of the same name which starred William Shatner.


    The project is inspired by Gangs of New York author Herbert Asbury’s book The Barbary Coast, about the birth of San Francisco.

    The Barbary Coast begins with The Gold Rush in 1849 which saw the biggest influx of gold-seekers, gamblers, thieves, harlots, politicians and other felonious parasites to the infant city. Thus arose unique criminal district that for almost seventy years was the scene of more viciousness and depravity – yet at the same time possessed more glamour and intrigue – than any other area of vice and iniquity on the American continent.

    I immediately thought of the Shatner series. Mind that was pretty bad as I recall.
