The first novel in the Leaphorn and Chee series, titled The Blessing Way, was published in 1970 by Tony Hillerman, an American detective writer. The novel introduced us to Joe Leaphorn and Jim Chee, two Navajo Tribal Police officers. The duo’s adventure was chronicled in more than 18 novels, and in 1991, a feature film titled The Dark Wind was released.

Producing the picture were Patrick Markey and Robert Redford. Over three decades later, it was revealed that AMC was adapting Hillerman’s Leaphorn and Chee book series for television, with Robert Redford of The Dark Wind and George R.R. Martin of Game of Thrones serving as executive producers.

Dark Winds is set in the 1970s in a remote Navajo Nation outpost and chronicles the lives of two Navajo police officers, Joe Leaphorn (portrayed by Zahn McClarnon) and Jim Chee (played by Kiowa Gordon). The cops are confronted with a series of seemingly unrelated crimes, and while they seek clues, they are compelled to confront their own spiritual beliefs and confront their tragic pasts.

Graham Roland created Dark Winds, which was directed by Chris Eyre and Sanford Bookstaver. The show’s showrunner and executive producer will be Vince Calandra. Graham Roland, Zahn McClarnon, Tina Elmo, Vince Gerardis, Chris Eyre, George R. R. Martin, and Robert Redford are all executive producers on the show.

Roland leads the writers’ room for Dark Winds, which is composed completely of Native American authors. The majority of the show’s filming settings were in New Mexico, which began on August 23, 2021. Additionally, Monument Valley, Kayenta, Espaola, and Mexican Hat were utilized.
