Produced by MTV Entertainment Studios and 101 Studios, Yellowstone, linear television’s most watched series, chronicles the Dutton family, led by John Dutton (Costner), who controls the largest contiguous cattle ranch in the United States. Amid shifting alliances, unsolved murders, open wounds, and hard-earned respect – the ranch is in constant conflict with those it borders – an expanding town, an Indian reservation, and vicious business rivalries.
Yellowstone is co-created by Taylor Sheridan and John Linson. Executive producers include John Linson, Art Linson, Taylor Sheridan, Kevin Costner, David C. Glasser, Bob Yari and Stephen Kay.
Moniz is repped by SDB Partners, Thruline Entertainment and Goodman Genow Schenkman. Mo Brings Plenty is with manager Michelle Shining Elk and Meyer & Downs.
