TV show description:

A TV show adaptation of the Philipp Meyer novel of the same name, The Son is a Texas period drama that follows three generations of the McCullough family. The series features the metamorphosis of Eli McCullough (Brosnan).

The family patriarch, Eli, changes over the years from an affable innocent into a conniving killer. After losing everything on the wild frontier, Eli resolves to build a lasting ranching and oil dynasty and, in time, grows exceedingly wealthy.

Eli’s eldest son Pete (Garrett) has always labored in dear old dad’s shadow. He longs to be his own man and yet still make his father proud.

Pete’s headstrong daughter Jeannie (Lucas) worships her grandfather. Regardless of the times, and the fact that she’s living in a man’s world, Jeannie has no intention of living only for marriage and motherhood.

Eli is a brutal man, particularly in dealing with his rival, Spanish neighbor Pedro Garcia (Bardem). In pursuit of power, Eli sparks events reaping ramifications which ripple throughout the generations.

In flashbacks, the drama also tells the story of young Eli (Lofland) and Comanche war chief Toshaway (McClarnon), who served as his father figure. Throughout, The Son delves into the rise of the McCullough family empire.
