Paramount Network’s first scripted dramatic series Yellowstone will premiere on Wednesday, June 20, 2018 at 9pm ET/PT. The new series comes from Taylor Sheridan, the Oscar nominated screenwriter of Hell or High Water. Sheridan writes and directs season one of Yellowstone which will have a 10 episode run.
Oscar-winning director Kevin Costner (Dances with Wolves) stars in the lead role, marking his first starring role in a TV series/miniseries since 2012’s Hatfields & McCoys. The cast also includes Wes Bentley, Kelly Reilly, Luke Grimes, Cole Hauser, Kelsey Asbille, Dave Annable, Danny Huston, Gil Birmingham, Jefferson White, Gretchen Mol, Jill Hennessey, Patrick St. Esprit, Ian Bohen, and Denim Richards.
John and Art Linson (Sons of Anarchy, Fight Club, Heat) serve as executive producers.
The Plot: Kevin Costner stars as John Dutton, who controls the largest contiguous ranch in the United States, under constant attack by those it borders — land developers, an Indian reservation, and America’s first National Park. It is an intense study of a violent world far from media scrutiny — where land grabs make developers billions, and politicians are bought and sold by the world’s largest oil and lumber corporations. Where drinking water poisoned by fracking wells and unsolved murders are not news: they are a consequence of living in the new frontier. It is the best and worst of America seen through the eyes of a family that represents both.
