Actors, as well as producers, are vying to work with Tulsa King creator and producer Taylor Sheridan. The filmmaker has been on fire ever since the premiere of Yellowstone with Kevin Costner, in 2018.
Tulsa King, much like Yellowstone and its prequel 1883, is looking to be another Sheridan gem. Continue reading and we’ll tell you everything you need to know about the new Taylor Sheridan drama coming to Paramount+ this November.
What’s Tulsa King About?
Sheridan, also known for such hit films as Sicario and Those Who Wish Me Dead, is becoming well known for creating one hit project after another. His next big project, in an otherwise busy work schedule, Tulsa King, stars Rocky and Rambo icon, Sylvester Stallone in his first major role on the small screen.
The new crime drama follows New York mafia capo, Dwight “The General” Manfredi who, upon release from prison following a 25-year stint, is exiled by his boss to Tulsa, Oklahoma. Upon realizing that the mafia he came up in and served time for, may not have his best interest at heart, he begins building his own crew to help him in establishing a new criminal empire in Tulsa.
Who Will Star in Tulsa King?
Tulsa King, filmed in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, stars Sylvester Stallone with such hits as Rambo, Demolition Man, and Judge Dredd in his resume, as Dwight “The General” Manfredi. This will be his first major television role.
Stallone will be backed up by these other actors:
Garrett Hedlund (Mitch Keller), Andrea Savage (Stacy Beale), Martin Starr (Bodhi), Max Casella (Armand Truisi), Phyllis Pastore (Denise Manfredi), Domenick Lombardozzi (Charles “Chickie” Invernizzi), A. C. Petersen (Pete “The Rock” Invernizzi), Vincent Piazza (Vincent Antonacci) and Jay Will (Tyson).
Who Writes the Tulsa King Script?
Tulsa King comes from the busy mind of Taylor Sheridan who some might remember as the Deputy Sherriff of Charming in the popular biker drama, Sons of Anarchy. Sheridan has since created numerous hit series including Yellowstone, Mayor of Kingstown, and 1883.
The filmmaker has numerous projects in the making, including Yellowstone prequel series 1883: The Bass Reeves Story and 1932. Sheridan is known for writing most of his own stories. However, with eight projects in the making, he reached out to mafia mastermind Terrence Winter for the Tulsa King script.
