Taylor Sheridan is an unstoppable man. In the last 18 months alone, the creative tour de force wrote Stefano Sollima Without remorse with Michael B. Jordan, wrote and directed his own feature film in Those who want me dead starring Angelina Jolie and Jon Bernthal, as well as launched two new shows – the Yellowstone prequel 1883 and the gravel Mayor of Kingstown directed by Jeremy Renner. What’s next for the screenwriting genius behind Sicario? It’s not a vacation, that’s for sure. In addition to further expanding the cinematic universe of Yellowstone, it is king of tulsa (Previously: Kansas City). And it will mark the television debut of Hollywood royalty, Sylvester Stallone.

What is Tulsa King?
Taylor Sheridan has co-created the next Paramount series with the one and only Terence Winter. If that name sounds familiar to you, there’s a very good reason. Winter honed his craft as a writer and executive producer for the classic HBO mob drama The Sopranos before creating the premium cable network other hit mob drama Boardwalk Empire. Somewhere along the way, he also found time to adapt Jordan Belfort’s ridiculous life story into a screenplay for Martin Scorsese. the wolf of Wall Street.
According to Deadlinehere is what awaits us king of tulsa:
Tulsa King follows New York mafia capo Dwight “The General” Manfredi (portrayed by Sylvester Stallone) who - as he's being released from prison after 25 years - is unceremoniously exiled by his boss to set up shop in Tulsa, Oklahoma and start his new life. Realizing that his mob family might not have his best interests in mind, Dwight slowly builds a new crew from a group of unlikely characters - one that prioritizes loyalty - to help him establish a new criminal empire in a place that to him might as well be another planet.
Why does Sylvester Stallone want to do TV now?
Previously, actors viewed the transition from feature films to television as a career setback. Generally speaking, you only wanted to “progress” in the other direction. But since the rebirth of the small screen, which hailed a new era rich in premium short-form and serialized content – that is, everything HBO has done from the above The Sopranos and Boardwalk Empire for real detectiveCMA Mad Men and breaking Badby Netflix Card castle – television has proven to be superior in terms of storytelling and storytelling opportunities.
In terms of why the Rocky Balboa star is making her small screen debut right now at the ripe old age of 75 – and after more than half a century as a device on the big screen, no less – it comes down to perspective to collaborate with Mr. Sheridan himself, as well as cross off another item from the old career checklist.
“He brings back a kind of rugged individualism that was sorely lacking,” Sylvester Stallone says of Taylor Sheridan.
“Every time I see a gangster-type movie, I think, ‘I can do this.'”
“Taylor is a prolific creator because of the multi-dimensional characters he creates and the complex worlds he builds,” adds David C. Glasser, executive producer and CEO of 101 Studios.
“To be able to have Sylvester play one of these characters is truly a privilege. And on top of that we have Terence producing the project with us, who is responsible for some of the most compelling and respected TV shows in the world. We are thrilled that ViacomCBS has partnered with us to help tell this story.
