Yellowstone is preparing for its debut! The new drama, which stars Kevin Costner, will start filming this month. The series will consist of 10-episodes, and filming will continue through December.
Paramount Network revealed more about the new series in a press release. Check that out below.
“Yellowstone, the first scripted series greenlit for Paramount Network, executive produced by Weinstein Television, John and Art Linson (Sons of Anarchy, Fight Club, Heat), and Kevin Costner, will begin principle photography on location in Utah this month. The 10-episode series will be shot near Park City through December.
Yellowstone stars world-renowned actor and Oscar(R)-winner Kevin Costner, who serves in the lead role, and is written and directed by critically-acclaimed, Oscar(R)-nominated screenwriter Taylor Sheridan (Hell or High Water and Sicario). Sheridan recently won Best Director Un Certain Regard at the Cannes Film Festival for the universally-lauded film, Wind River.
The impressive cast list for Yellowstone includes Wes Bentley, Kelly Reilly, Luke Grimes, Cole Hauser, Kelsey Asbille, Dave Annable, Danny Huston, Gil Birmingham, Jefferson White, Gretchen Mol, Jill Hennessey, Patrick St. Esprit, Ian Bohen, and Denim Richards.
Paramount Network, television’s new destination for premium scripted programming, will launch in January. Yellowstone will debut on the network next summer.
Virginia Pearce, director of the Utah Film Commission, said: “Supporting filmmakers in telling unique stories with compelling characters and breathtaking locations is key for us, and the much-anticipated Yellowstone ticks all the boxes. We are thrilled to see the talented Taylor Sheridan return to Utah, and to welcome the whole cast to our community.”
In Yellowstone, Costner stars as 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. It is the best and worst of America seen through the eyes of a family that represents both.”
