YELLOWSTONE: Paramount Network Orders Taylor Sheridan Series

Paramount Network Gives Green Light To Original Unscripted Series Yellowstone

Paramount Network announces that it has put in its first order of episodes for the network’s proposed TV series Yellowstone.

Although the planned program will not be scripted, Academy Award-nominated Sicario screenwriter Taylor Sheridan will serve as a writer for the series in addition to directing it. The Weinstein Company will work with Fight Club producers John and Art Linson as executive producers. Describing the show as “both timely and timeless”, Sheridan said he felt “grateful” that Paramount picked it up for production.

The series will not make its debut on the network until the summer of 2018, but Paramount has already committed to 10 hour-long episodes. Whether the company will decide to continue with the program after its initial run remains to be seen.

Per, the source of this story:

Yellowstone follows the Dutton family, led by 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.

An aspiring writer, longtime film junkie, and former disc jockey (where I graduated with a BA in Political Science), I've made the jump from penning book reviews and current events editorials for to writing movie and TV news and reviews.

When I'm not working towards my certificate in Radio and Television/Video Production at Fullerton College, I enjoy reading (horror, science fiction, and historical/political nonfiction are particular favorites), participating in my school's TV and theatre clubs, attending movie screenings, plays, concerts, and other events, and trying to come up with pithy things to say on social media. Believe it or not, there are occasions where I find time to write for my own leisure.
