In the 22-second teaser clip, actor David Oyelowo introduces himself as Bass Reeves, a real-life legendary US outlaw of the post-Reconstruction era, of whom the anthology series is based on.
"I'm the law of this land, I'm Deputy US Marshal Bass Reeves," states Oyelowo, who enters the shot riding on horseback, before breaking and entering into a property with a shotgun.
A montage of Oyelowo as Reeves fighting and firing shots at several enemies follow, before he concludes: "And your wicked days are gone".
