“Every member of my family fights this fight.” So begins the official trailer for Mayor of Kingstown, Taylor Sheridan’s series for Paramount+.
Co-created by Sheridan and Hugh Dillon, Mayor of Kingstown follows the McLusky family, 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 provides a stark look at their attempt to bring order and justice to a town that has neither.
Jeremy Renner stars with Kyle Chandler, Dianne Wiest, Dillon, Taylor Handley, Emma Laird and Tobi Bamtefa.
“We get paid to give advice, so let me give you some” Renner’s Mike McClusky warns Emma Laird’s Iris. “Wherever you’re from, you should go back, you won’t make it here.”
Produced by MTV Entertainment Studios and 101 Studios, Mayor of Kingstown is executive produced by Sheridan, Dillon, Renner, Antoine Fuqua, David C. Glasser, Ron Burkle, Bob Yari and Michael Friedman.
Mayor of Kingstown and Yellowstone prequel 1883, premiering on Paramount+ on December 19, are the first projects stemming from Sheridan’s multi-year deal with MTV Entertainment and ViacomCBS, which includes scripted and procedural series for streaming and linear.
Mayor of Kingstown premieres November 14 on Paramount+.
