EXCLUSIVE: As several suitors and actresses circled, Endeavor Content made a preemptive deal in the mid- to high-six-figure range for Wolf Country, a spec script by Pete Begler. 51 Entertainment’s Lynette Howell Taylor (A Star Is Born) and Samantha Housman will produce.

A beloved Colorado lawman who lives by his own version of the truth is headed for prison. Before he gets there, he escapes custody. A young female sheriff who still believes in right and wrong must go it alone chasing him through the rugged Colorado wilderness. In bringing him to justice she must first come to terms with the complexities of the man who taught her everything and who also happens to be her father.

Begler previously wrote Dog for Sidney Kimmel and was a writer on the Hulu drama Chance. He teaches writing at the Art Center College of Design and is the author of The Fearless Travelers Guide to Wicked Places.

He is repped by WME, Kaplan/Perrone and Jackoway Austen.
