It's high noon for the bad guys on the upcoming FX series 'Justified.'

The exclusive new trailer for the series opens with star Timothy Olyphant as lawman Raylan Givens shooting a bad guy at a beachside resort.

"You know we're not able to shoot people on site anymore,' says Givens' commander.

The exclusive new trailer for the series opens with star Timothy Olyphant as lawman Raylan Givens shooting a bad guy at a beachside resort.

"You know we're not able to shoot people on site anymore,' says Givens' commander.

'He pulled first,' quips Olyphant's Givens.

Then Givens finds himself returning to the backwoods of Kentucky, where bad vibes, bullets and even rockets fly. It looks like Givens' quick-draw style is the only thing that can save this humble town.

Olyphant, perhaps best known for his role as Seth Bullock on HBO's 'Deadwood,' hasn't let his gun get too cold since 'Deadwood's' demise and, in fact, seems to have a much quicker trigger finger now. Twenty seconds don't go by without Givens shooting or threatening to shoot someone in the trailer.

Well, sometimes you can only get justice at the end of gun.

Olyphant's laconic Givens echoes the great Hollywood Western stars of the past, like John Wayne and Clint Eastwood. Let's see if they can keep it up for a whole show, much less a series.

Graham Yost ('Boomtown,' 'Speed') developed 'Justified,' which is based on a popular Elmore Leonard character. The novelist is an executive producer. FX has ordered 13 episodes.

'Justfied' changed it name from 'Lawman' earlier this year to avoid confusion with the reality show 'Steven Seagal: Lawman,' which premiered earlier this month on A&E. The series is set to debut in March.
