Marshal Raylan Givens — a tough, soft-spoken lawman with a rough side — and chronicles his cases and personal life, including unfinished business with an ex-wife and his aging father. FX also picked up the crime comedy-drama Terriers , created by Ted Griffin , for its fall lineup; in , the channel debuted the boxing drama Lights Out , about retired boxing champion Patrick "Lights" Leary who is considering a comeback despite the serious risks it entails.
