Encore Westerns wants its subscribers to know that all Westerns weren’t made before 1990.
The Starz Entertainment Group LLC-owned service said Wednesday that it will feature movie showcase “The New Frontier” every Saturday night in October at 8 p.m. (EST/PST).
“Through the modern-day interpretations of the genre that viewers will see as part of ‘The New Frontier’ programming initiative, the Wild West lives on for a new generation of film fans,” Starz vice president of programming and scheduling Michael Ruggiero said in a prepared statement.
