9 p.m. on PBS-TV

Tune in to PBS Wednesday, May 17 at 9 p.m. MDT for “The American Cowboy,” an episode of the new series, Iconic America: Our Symbols and Stories with David Rubenstein.

The cowboy is the quintessential American—fiercely independent, brave, and laconic. The episode examines the myths and realities of this archetype, which remains as powerful as ever in the 21st century.

“The American Cowboy” episode was filmed partially in Cody last summer. The crew spent quite a bit of time at the Center of the West and interviewed our own Jeremy Johnston, the Ernest J. Goppert Curator of our Buffalo Bill Museum.

The series explores American history through a close examination of iconic national symbols: indelible artifacts, places, and archetypes. It is a production of Show of Force, DMR Productions, and WETA Washington, D.C. Host David M. Rubenstein is also an executive producer. Find more on PBS’s website.
