Paramount+ will bow the original series “Tulsa King,” starring Sylvester Stallone, with two episodes on Nov. 13.
Creator and Academy Award nominee Taylor Sheridan serves as executive producer alongside Academy Award nominee and Emmy Award winner Terence Winter (“The Sopranos,” The Wolf of Wall Street), who will also be at the helm as showrunner and writer.
Mirroring the 2021 launches of “1883” and “Mayor of Kingstown,” Paramount Network will air a linear sneak peek of the “Tulsa King” debut episode on Nov. 13, as a special simulcast event immediately following the season five premiere of “Yellowstone.” Similarly, the second episode of “Tulsa King” will air behind “Yellowstone” on Nov. 20. All remaining episodes will be available to stream weekly on Sundays exclusively on Paramount+.
“Tulsa King” follows New York mafia capo Dwight “The General” Manfredi (Stallone), just after he is released from prison after 25 years and unceremoniously exiled by his boss to set up shop in Tulsa, Okla. Realizing that his mob family may not have his best interests in mind, Dwight slowly builds a “crew” from a group of unlikely characters to help him establish a new criminal empire in a place that to him might as well be another planet.
“Tulsa King” is the latest addition to Sheridan’s growing slate on Paramount+ which includes “1883,” “Mayor of Kingstown” and the upcoming series “Lioness,” “1883: The Bass Reeves Story,” “Land Man” and “1932” (working title).
