    Yellowstone
    Kevin Costner is set as the lead in Yellowstone, Paramount Network’s upcoming straight-to-series drama, written and executive produced by Oscar-nominated Hell or High Water and Sicario screenwriter Taylor Sheridan and executive produced by The Weinstein Company.

    Costner will play 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.

    Yellowstone is the first scripted drama series greenlighted by Paramount Network, Viacom’s new general entertainment network and leading scripted brand, which will replace Spike in early 2018, The 10-episode series is slated to go into production in the fall for premiere on the network in summer 2018.

    Taylor Sheridan is definitely a name to watch, impressive writing CV so far

    Sheriff Hale from SOA has done well

    Sort of reminds me of The Bridge FX remake here and with the bloke behind Sicario involved, there's probably some dodgy stuff going around the border or law. Looks well shot too.

    More Costner focused in this one.



  • Registered Users Posts: 57,156 ✭✭✭✭ Agent Coulson


    Starts on Wednesday.

    One review called it a poor man's Dallas disappointing if true.

    Based on the trailer and those attached that would be very disappinting.
    Will wait for further feedback before deciding to watch.


  • Registered Users Posts: 57,156 ✭✭✭✭ Agent Coulson


    Stunningly filmed using that amazing location a top class cast all acting well and so far a decent story.


    I can see why the Dallas light is thrown at it however I really enjoyed the opening two episodes of it myself.



    Taylor Sheridan really does seem to get this America and brings it to screen in a very enjoyable and watchable way.

    1 ep yea?


  • Registered Users Posts: 866 ✭✭✭ geecee


    I thought the double episode pilot was excellent... reminds me of the good parts of "The Son" in a contemporary environment... mixed in with the best parts of Dallas

    And also reminds me that we have wasted 20 years of Kevin Costner's career... what a star and what a great series (so far) for him to make his real comeback


  • Registered Users Posts: 9,829 ✭✭✭ Slydice


    So far it's good. Setup with tension already. Costner looks well chosen.

    Looks capable of hitting highs. Might be a few filler episodes to come depending on their budget but with Sheridan writing, I'm optimistic.

    reminds me of longmire a bit too re the plan to build on the land

    Liked it. Great pedigree with Taylor Sheridan involved. I'll keep watching.


  • Registered Users Posts: 57,156 ✭✭✭✭ Agent Coulson


    Well the pilot was a big hit ratings wise.
    The premiere of Paramount Network’s new drama series “Yellowstone” saw impressive gains in delayed viewing.

    According to Nielsen Live+3 data, “Yellowstone” pulled in 4.8 million viewers, up approximately 71% from the 2.8 million the show drew in Live+Same Day in its premiere on June 20. With that, “Yellowstone” now ranks as ad-supported cable’s most-watched scripted drama series premiere since “The People vs O.J. Simpson” in 2016 and the most-watched original series telecast not only in the new network’s history, but also for its former iteration, Spike TV.

    The show also rose 75% in adults 18-49, growing from a solid 0.4 to a 0.7 after three days of playback.

    I must say I enjoyed that.

    Probably best not to do any more calving work, newborns don't tend to hop up and run off like there's a wolf chasing them :pac:
    The daughter is a real piece of work. My only fear thus far is the son and his indian wife will do the all angsty relationship stuff, I hope that doesn't happen but I suppose that's what fast forward is for!


  • Registered Users Posts: 76,180 ✭✭✭✭ JP Liz V1


    Will this be shown on the new Paramount UK channel (Sky 159)?


  • Registered Users Posts: 57,156 ✭✭✭✭ Agent Coulson


    The story moves along nicely in episode two.

    Really enjoying the show.


  • Registered Users Posts: 9,829 ✭✭✭ Slydice


    Don't wanna jinx it so I guess I'll say.. That episode was good! :)

    It's like Sheridan is writting good individual stories and slowly shaping up an overall story. As time goes by, I'm guessing it's gonna gain in tense / dread feel in the background until things get sorted out.

    Four: I liked that one. Just something about the feel or structure.

    Thought it was gonna go downhill with the bar but it didn't.


  • Registered Users Posts: 57,156 ✭✭✭✭ Agent Coulson


    Renewed for a 2nd season.


  • Registered Users Posts: 57,156 ✭✭✭✭ Agent Coulson


    "If that's your happy I don't want to hear your sad"

    Delighted this has been renewed as I am really enjoying the story they are telling.


    Costner also seems really up for this role and he is on top class form.

    I actually wandered into this thread thinking that it was a Dwayne Johnson movie.

    Have added this to my list of things to watch now.


  • Registered Users Posts: 57,156 ✭✭✭✭ Agent Coulson


    :eek: I was not expecting that at all :(


  • Registered Users Posts: 9,829 ✭✭✭ Slydice
