Justified is a critically acclaimed crime drama television series created by Graham Yost. The show is based on the character of Raylan Givens created by Elmore Leonard in his novels and short stories. Set primarily in Harlan, a rural county in eastern Kentucky, Justified follows the life of Deputy U.S. Marshal Raylan Givens as he navigates the complex world of law enforcement and his own complicated past.
