Yellowstone Co-Creator Taylor Sheridan Signs Overall Production and Development Deal with ViacomCBS Entertainment & Youth Br

LOS ANGELES , February 21 /Businesswire/ - ViacomCBS’ Entertainment & Youth Brands today announced an overall production and development deal with critically acclaimed, Oscar®-nominated screenwriter Taylor Sheridan, co-creator of Paramount Network’s hit series Yellowstone. Sheridan’s deal covers multiple projects across Chris McCarthy’s portfolio, including projects for the newly created Entertainment & Youth Studios. David Glasser and 101 Studios will executive produce all projects under the deal. Keith Cox, President of ViacomCBS Entertainment and Youth Studios, will oversee the projects.

Additionally, Paramount Network ordered a fourth season of Sheridan’s Yellowstone, the #1 scripted series of the summer across cable and broadcast TV in the key P18-49 and P25-54 demos and the most-watched 2019 summer series on cable TV among total viewers. Season three of Yellowstone premieres this summer.

Yellowstone is Paramount Network’s most-watched scripted series ever and season two holds a 100% rating on Rotten Tomatoes. The series stars world-renowned actor and Oscar®-winner Kevin Costner as John Dutton, who controls the largest, contiguous ranch in the United States. Yellowstone is co-created by Sheridan and John Linson. Yellowstone is co-produced by 101 Studios. Executive producers for Yellowstone are John Linson, Art Linson, Taylor Sheridan, Kevin Costner, David C. Glasser and Bob Yari.

Sheridan’s deal also includes a first season of scripted drama Mayor of Kingstown, which the brand ordered in January 2020. Set in a small Michigan town centered on seven federal prisons, Mayor of Kingstown follows the McClusky family, the power brokers between the criminals, the cops, the prisoners and politicians who all have something at stake. The series comes from creator and executive producer Sheridan, along with co-creator and executive producer Hugh Dillon, executive producer David Glasser and production company 101 Studios.
