- Program Description
Tony Hillerman's breakthrough Navajo police novel, Skinwalkers, comes to PBS in a two-hour American MYSTERY! special executive-produced by long-time Hillerman fan Robert Redford.
"The Chee and Leaphorn mysteries have been a passion project of mine for 14 years," says Redford, who serves as executive producer along with Rebecca Eaton of MYSTERY! and longtime Redford associate Michael Nozik (Quiz Show).
Directed by Chris Eyre (Smoke Signals) from a script by Jamie Redford, the mystery stars Adam Beach (Smoke Signals) and Wes Studi (Dances with Wolves) as Native American detectives Jim Chee and Joe Leaphorn of the Navajo Tribal Police. Skinwalkers was Hillerman's first book to hit the bestseller lists and is one of 14 Hillerman mysteries featuring these characters, including the recently released The Wailing Wind.
Skinwalkers is the first in a projected series of Hillerman stories on MYSTERY!.
