Kevin Costner is making a comeback on small screen with Yellowstone, it is from Oscar-nominated screenwriter Taylor Sheridan, He made these brilliant movies, Hell or High Water, Wind River, and Sicario. So you should be excited about this show. He is bringing his dark storytelling ability to a TV series and with Kevin Costner leading the cast, this is going to be simply awesome.
The series is set in the violent world of the Duttons family, who actually are the ranchers in Montana. This series will take us to the gritty and hardcore underworld of the American heartland. “The show is set near the titular national park and will focus on the violence needed to maintain the largest contiguous ranch in the United States.”
Two-time Academy Award winner Kevin Costner stars as John Dutton, the patriarch of the family 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.
The cast 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.
Yellowstone will premiere on the Paramount Network on Wednesday, June 20.
