Oct. 14, 2021 – Paramount+, the streaming service from ViacomCBS, today released the official trailer and key art for its upcoming new original drama series MAYOR OF KINGSTOWN. From Academy Award® nominee and “Yellowstone” co-creator Taylor Sheridan, and Hugh Dillon, the 10-episode season will premiere on Sunday, Nov. 14 and features an all-star cast including Academy Award® nominee Jeremy Renner, Academy Award® winner Dianne Wiest, Emmy Award® winner Kyle Chandler, Dillon, Taylor Handley, Emma Laird and Tobi Bamtefa.
MAYOR OF KINGSTOWN follows the McLusky family – power brokers in Kingstown, Mich., 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.

As part of Sheridan’s deal with MTV Entertainment and ViacomCBS, MAYOR OF KINGSTOWN and 1883 – the “Yellowstone” origin story premiering on Paramount+ Dec. 19 – are the first from his exclusive multi-year pact, which includes scripted and procedural series for streaming and linear. 101 Studios serves as a production partner on all series.
