Paramount Network Orders Drama 'Mayor of Kingstown' Created by Taylor Sheridan

During its presentation at the Television Critics Association's winter press tour, Paramount Network gave a series order to the original drama series Mayor of Kingstown created by Yellowstone's Taylor Sheridan.

Set in a small Michigan town where federal, state and private prisons are the only industry remaining, the McClusky family are the power brokers between the police, criminals, inmates, prison guards and politicians, in a city completely dependent on prisons and the prisoners they contain. It is a stark and brutal look at the business of incarceration.

Sheridan co-created the drama with Hugh Dillon. They executive produce with David Glasser. 101 Studios will produce.
