Jeremy Renner to Star in Upcoming Drama 'Mayor of Kingstown' for Paramount+

The original drama series Mayor of Kingstown from Yellowstone creator Taylor Sheridan will be produced and air on Paramount+ instead of the linear cable channel Paramount Network as was originally announced. Moreover, Jeremy Renner (Hawkeye) has signed on to play the lead role.

The drama follows the McLusky family - the 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 will provide a stark look at their attempt to bring order and justice to a town that has neither.

Renner will play Mike McLusky, the Mayor of Kingstown.

Sheridan co-created the drama with Hugh Dillon. They executive produce with Renner, David Glasser, Ron Burkle, Bob Yari, Michael Friedman and director Antoine Fuqua. MTV Entertainment Studios, Bosque Ranch Productions and 101 Studios produce.
