From Oscar-nominated writer/executive producer Taylor Sheridan, Yellowstone follows the Dutton family, led by John Dutton (Costner), 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.
In addition to Yellowstone, Richards has also joined season two of the Freeform breakout series Good Trouble recurring as Elijah, a highly confident, budding fashion designer on the LA scene who has a history with Gael (Tommy Martinez). With Yellowstone and Good Trouble on Richards’ plate, he will be appearing on two different series this summer back-to-back on Tuesdays and Wednesdays respectively.
Richards credits also include Chickasaw Rancher and The New Edition Story. He also was a writer/producer for The Forgotten Ones.
Richards is repped by GVA Talent Agency and managed by Britani Golden at Pink Hammer Entertainment.
