Paramount+ announced that it has picked up a new series titled “Tulsa King.” “Tulsa King” will premiere on the Paramount+ Network this fall and the show will star Sylvester Stallone. The series follows New York mafia capo Dwight “The General” Manfredi, played by Stallone. According to Variety, the show is currently in production in Oklahoma City, Okla. MTV Entertainment Studios and 101 Studios produce.
According to a story in Variety, the show picks up, begins, after his character is released from prison. The prison release is after him having served a 25 year sentence and he is stuck in the town of Tulsa, Oklahoma…where his boss stuck him.
Realizing that his mob family may not have his best interests in mind, Dwight slowly builds a “crew” from a group of unlikely characters, to help him establish a new criminal empire in a place that to him might as well be another planet. The series also stars Andrea Savage, Martin Starr, Max Casella, Domenick Lombardozzi, Vincent Piazza, Jay Will, A.C. Peterson and Garrett Hedlund.
The show is set to premiere on November 13th currently and will be streaming on the Paramount+ Network.
