Mayor of Kingstown is another drama from Academy Award nominee Taylor Sheridan, co-creator of Yellowstone and the upcoming spinoff, 1894.
Streaming exclusively on Paramount+, the series features an all-star cast, including Academy Award Nominee Jeremy Renner, Academy Award Winner Dianne Wiest, Emmy Award Winner Kyle Chandler, Hugh Dillon, Taylor Handley, Emma Laird, and Tobi Bamtefa.
Premiering on November 14, Mayor of Kingstown follows the McLusky family — power brokers in Kingstown, Michigan, where the business of incarceration is the only thriving industry.
Tackling themes of systemic racism, corruption, and inequality, the series provides a stark look at their attempt to bring order and justice to a town that has neither.
Mayor of Kingstown will be executive produced by Sheridan, Dillon, Jeremy Renner, Antoine Fuqua, David C. Glasser, Ron Burkle, Bob Yari, and Michael Friedman.
As part of Sheridan’s deal with MTV Entertainment and ViacomCBS, Mayor of Kingstown and 1883 – the Yellowstone origin story premiering on Paramount+ Dec. 19 – are the first from his exclusive multi-year pact.
That pact includes scripted and procedural series for streaming and linear networks.
101 Studios serves as a production partner on all series.
Paramount Network will air a special simulcast premiere event for MAYOR OF Kingstown on Sunday, Nov. 14, following a new episode of Yellowstone.
