'Quick Draw' video: Preview a frontier-style 'whiskey support group'

The Hulu original series, "Quick Draw," is a half-hour procedural comedy set in the Old West. It has, however, something of a modern sensibility to it. In this exclusive clip from Monday's upcoming episode, we see that sensibility in a video for a "whiskey support group for not drinking whiskey."

"Joined by a cast of characters that includes 'Deputy Eli Brocias' (Nicholas Brown), a madam/saloon-owner named 'Honey Shaw' (Allison Dunbar), and a hodgepodge of colorful locals, outlaws, and ladies of the night, Sheriff Hoyle is tasked with bringing law and order to 'Great Bend'...
