FORT WORTH (AP) – The cast of the “Lonesome Dove” TV miniseries has been invited to help celebrate the 1989 program and benefit a museum dedicated to the Southwest.
Texas State University in San Marcos on Wednesday announced plans for the 2016 Lonesome Dove Reunion & Trail in Fort Worth.
The school is home to the Wittliff Collections, founded by writer and producer Bill Wittliff. Wittliff was screenwriter and co-executive producer of the “Lonesome Dove” miniseries, based on the Pulitzer Prize-winning book by Larry McMurtry.
Events run January through June in Fort Worth, including miniseries photos, costumes and other western exhibits at the Sid Richardson Museum, the National Cowgirl Museum and Hall of Fame and the Cattle Raisers Museum.
A gala, featuring cast and crew, will be March 31 at the Fort Worth Stockyards.
