The List of All the Sheridan-Verse Shows That Are Not Yellowstone
Yellowstone was not his first rodeo.
American director Taylor Sheridan, a real-life cowboy, based much of Paramount Studios' Yellowstone on his own childhood in Texas, but it's not the only show to bear the award-winning filmmaker's name (and we're not talking about 1883 or 1923, either).
Yellowstone may have been his flagship series, but after roles in White Rush, Hell or High Water and 12 Strong, the former actor has proven his writing and directing prowess with these series, which are also his own creations.
The Last Cowboy (2019)
7.1 on IMDb
This reality TV series offers a thrilling glimpse into the high-stakes world of professional horse training, as 8 fearless horsemen compete to become number one.
Sheridan has upped the stakes from this documentary competition by creating "Run for a Million," a live, arena-based reigning event where the winner walks away with a grand prize of $1 million.
Described as exciting and fun for the whole family, and with a solid 71% IMDb rating, the highly anticipated fourth season of The Last Cowboy is set to premiere in November this year, with the first episodes challenging a new set of trainers hitting screens on the 17th of the month.
Mayor of Kingstown (2021)
8.2 on IMDb
Making its debut in November 2021, Mayor of Kingstown quickly proved to be a compelling and relevant watch, earning an impressive 91% audience score on Rotten Tomatoes.
Following the McLusky family in Kingstown and starring Jeremy Renner, this crime drama takes a deep dive into the prison "industry" and highlights issues of systemic racism and corruption as the family struggles to establish order where none exists.
Tulsa King (2022)
8.0 on IMDb
A year after the release of the hugely popular Mayor of Kingstown comes another crime drama, but this time audiences follow the criminal. Sylvester Stallone stars as Dwight "The General" Manfredi, a Mafia capo exiled to Tulsa after 25 years in prison, where he begins to build an unlikely criminal empire of his own.
Tulsa King proved to be just as popular with audiences as Mayor of Kingstown, earning the same 91% score on Rotten Tomatoes. With Stallone's unmatched humor, Tulsa King offers a unique blend of comedy and violence in a story that is both entertaining and engaging.
Special Ops: Lioness (2023)
7.7 on IMDb
Inspired by a real-life U.S. military program, this high-stakes drama follows Joe, played by Zoe Saldaña, as the head of a CIA operation tasked with befriending the wives and girlfriends of terrorists in order to infiltrate the organization and combat terrorism.
Created and written by Sherdian, the adrenaline-pumping show stars A-listers Nicole Kidman and Morgan Freeman and currently has 8 episodes with 6 more to air on Paramount+.
Special Ops: Lioness currently sits with an audience rating of 81% and has been praised for its writing and action sequences, as well as being described as entertaining from the start.
Land Man (TBA)
Sherdian's latest project is still in the works, with the first season announced back in February 2022. Details about Land Man are still scarce, but we do know that it is set in West Texas and will tell the more modern story of the oil boom; the billionaires fueling it from the top and the workers at the bottom.
The series stars Billy Bob Thornton as a crisis manager for an oil company, with Ali Larter playing his ex-wife and 1923 alum Michelle Randolph stepping into the role of their daughter.
