Coyote, the Border Patrol drama starring Michael Chiklis, is the latest high-profile Viacom scripted series to move to streaming.
The series, which is produced by Sony Pictures Television, is moving from Paramount Network to CBS All Access. The Viacom-owned streamer will debut Coyote on January 7. Watch the trailer above.
It leaves Yellowstone as one of the last remaining original dramas on the Paramount Network, which is set to be rebranded as the Paramount Movie Network, which will focus on television movies. The Kevin Costner-fronted western was renewed for a fourth season earlier this year. The network also ordered Mayor of Kingstown, from Yellowstone co-creator Taylor Sheridan, earlier this year.
Scripted originals that have been moved or cancelled at Paramount Network this year include Darren Star’s Emily in Paris, which was originally ordered at Paramount Network before moving to Netflix, 68 Whiskey, which was cancelled after one season and Sexy Beast, which was originally given a straight-to-series order before being axed earlier this summer.
Coyote, which stars Juan Pablo Raba alongside Chiklis, is the story of Ben Clemens (Chiklis), who after 32 years as a border patrol agent is forced to work for the very people he spent his career trying to keep out of America. Now exposed to life on the other side of the wall, Ben will start to question his black and white views of the world, challenging his ideology and his loyalties.
In addition to Michael Chiklis and Juan Pablo Raba, who plays Juan Diego “El Catrin” Zamora, the head of a small family cartel in Mexico, the series also stars Adriana Paz, Kristyan Ferrer, Octavio Pisano, Cynthia Kaye McWilliams, Julio Cedillo and introducing Emy Mena.
Michelle MacLaren (Breaking Bad) directed the series premiere and second episode and serves as an executive producer on the series. David Graziano (American Gods) serves as showrunner. Co-creators Graziano, Michael Carnes and Josh Gilbert also serve as executive producers and writers on the series. Dark Horse Entertainment’s Mike Richardson and Keith Goldberg (The Umbrella Academy), Rebecca Hobbs of MacLaren Entertainment, and Chiklis also serve as executive producers.
