A deep-dive reimagining of the classic psychosexual thriller and ‘80s cultural touchstone, the new series will explore fatal attraction and the timeless themes of marriage and infidelity through the lens of modern attitudes toward strong women, personality disorders and coercive control.

Alexandra Cunningham (“Dirty John,” “Chance”) serves as writer, showrunner and executive producer on the series alongside executive producer Kevin J.

WOMEN WHOSE LIVES WERE ENRICHED BY INCREDIBLE WEALTH IN VLADIMIR PUTIN’S INNER CIRCLE RISK EVERYTHING





WOMEN WHOSE LIVES WERE ENRICHED BY INCREDIBLE WEALTH IN VLADIMIR PUTIN’S INNER CIRCLE RISK EVERYTHING BY SPEAKING OUT, IN THE PARAMOUNT+ EXCLUSIVE DOCUMENTARY “SECRETS OF THE OLIGARCH WIVES”

June 22, 2022 – The women partners of the billionaires who put President Vladimir Putin in charge risk everything by revealing the secrets of staying in the iron-willed dictator’s good graces and the price some have paid for speaking out, in the Paramount+ original documentary SECRETS OF THE OLIGARCH WIVES. The 90-minute documentary will stream beginning Tuesday, June 28.

The women paint a terrifying picture of a vengeful petty tyrant who saw treachery at every turn, forgave nothing, settled every score and was jealous of their lifestyles. They tell stories of corruption, betrayal and suspected murder. In doing so, they put their own lives at risk.

“Whenever you make a contract with the devil, there will be consequences … If you deal with the dark side, it will come to haunt you later,” says Tatiana Fokina, whose partner Yevegny Chichvarkin was once worth over $1.5 billion.

Putin’s invasion of Ukraine has rocked the world of the Oligarchs and other wealthy Russians, leaving them in the crosshairs of the West. Their assets have been frozen, their properties seized, even though they live in exile and cast out of the leader’s inner circle.

The Oligarchs came into power in the 1990s when a select group of Russian businessmen took hold of large industries after the Soviet Union dissolved. Their wives and girlfriends shared in their unimaginable wealth – multimillion-dollar yachts, private jets and vast estates. The Oligarchs felt untouchable believing that President Vladimir Putin would be their puppet.

“Putin would much prefer to have been an oligarch than to have been president,” says Alexandra Tolstoy, whose partner is oligarch Sergei Pugachev, once estimated to be worth $2 billion.

Pugachev was known as Putin’s “banker” until he fled into exile in London.

“There is no difference between Russian organized crime and the Russian government,” says businessman and author Bill Browder. “Russian government is effectively an organized crime organization and Vladimir Putin is the Mafia boss.”

In SECRETS OF THE OLIGARCH WIVES, these women tell their truths even though it may cost them dearly, putting a target on their backs, making it impossible to visit family in a country led by a man who holds grudges and never forgets.

“Going to Russia now would be suicide for me,” says Fokina, adding that she knows what she’s said would get her thrown in jail.

SECRETS OF THE OLIGARCH WIVES is from See It Now Studios and BLINK FILMS. For Blink Films, Justine Kershaw, Laura Jones and David McNab are executive producers. Lynsey Neale is head of production. For See It Now Studios, Susan Zirinsky and Terence Wrong are the executive producers, Aysu Saliba is the supervising producer and Adam Goldfried is the executive director. Amy Gardner and Carlin Miller are the associate producers.

“THE DAY THE MUSIC DIED: THE STORY OF DON MCLEAN’S ‘AMERICAN PIE’” TO PREMIERE EXCLUSIVELY





“THE DAY THE MUSIC DIED: THE STORY OF DON MCLEAN’S ‘AMERICAN PIE’” TO PREMIERE EXCLUSIVELY ON PARAMOUNT+ JULY 19

Revealing Secrets Behind McLean’s Iconic Song, the Original Documentary Will Also Screen in Theaters Globally

June 22, 2022 – Paramount+ today announced that THE DAY THE MUSIC DIED: THE STORY OF DON MCLEAN’S “AMERICAN PIE” will premiere exclusively on the service Tuesday, July 19, both in the U.S. and internationally where the service is available. Additionally, the documentary will have a special Academy qualifying run in New York City and Los Angeles starting on July 8 and will screen in Showcase Cinemas and associated theaters globally on July 14 and July 17.

With a narrative running deeper than a catchy tune and cryptic verses, “American Pie” is a musical phenomenon woven deep into the history of American culture, entertaining audiences around the world for over 50 years. In THE DAY THE MUSIC DIED: THE STORY OF DON MCLEAN’S “AMERICAN PIE,” McLean will, for the first time, powerfully reveal and share the secrets behind his iconic song. In addition, the documentary highlights cultural moments in America’s history that are as relevant now as they were in 1971, when the song was released. The film tells stories of the people who were a part of this moment from the beginning and shows the point of view of a new generation of artists who are motivated by the same values and ideas that inspired the song’s creation.

“This documentary is something that will make people think, especially since so many throughout the years have asked me what certain lyrics meant or whom I was referring to, but now I finally can solve many of those mysteries,” says McLean. “Everyone from Madonna to Garth Brooks to Weird Al Yankovic has recorded ‘American Pie’ and made it their own. So many people have their own interpretation of the song, and I love it.”

“Not only is ‘American Pie’ one of the most universally known songs of all time, it also represents a significant piece of musical history and a pivotal moment in American culture. It’s a story that needs to be told and we’re excited to have THE DAY THE MUSIC DIED take fans deeper into the song’s making, finally put to rest the speculation behind its lyrics and hear from today’s biggest artists – both legends and future stars – who it has personally influenced,” said Bruce Gillmer, president of music, music talent, programming and events at Paramount, and chief content officer of music at Paramount+. “A global sensation deserves a global launch and we’re thrilled to add this film to Paramount+’ unmatched portfolio of premiere music content.”

To help bring the documentary to life, McLean enlisted music producer and songwriter Spencer Proffer, CEO of media production company Meteor 17. In a collaborative vision, Proffer and McLean tell the story of this special and unique song by using contemporary audio/visual storytelling techniques to artistically reimagine the music for a modern audience.

“There are interchanges with all stripes of people from many walks of life, including major celebrities, music icons, current breaking artists and industry leaders,” said Proffer. “The film explores what ‘American Pie’ meant to people then, what it means to them now and what it will mean to generations in the future.”

THE DAY THE MUSIC DIED: THE STORY OF DON MCLEAN’S “AMERICAN PIE” is produced by Spencer Proffer and executive produced by Bruce Gilmer.

Delany Joins Previously Announced Series Regulars Academy Award® Nominee Sylvester Stallone, Andrea Savage, Martin Starr, Max Casella, Domenick Lombardozzi, Vincent Piazza, Jay Will, A.C. Peterson and Garrett Hedlund

Creator and Academy Award® Nominee Taylor Sheridan Serves as Executive Producer Alongside Academy Award® Nominee and Emmy Award® Winner Terence Winter

Produced by MTV Entertainment Studio and 101 Studios

LONDON – June 20, 2022 – Paramount Global (NASDAQ: PARA, PARAA), to celebrate the debut of Paramount+ in the UK and Ireland on June 22, announced that two-time Emmy®-winning actress Dana Delany (“Body of Proof”) will join previously announced series lead and Academy Award® nominee Sylvester Stallone in the new original series TULSA KING. Creator and Academy Award nominee Taylor Sheridan serves as executive producer alongside Academy Award nominee and Emmy Award winner Terence Winter (“The Sopranos,” “The Wolf of Wall Street”), who will also be at the helm as showrunner and writer. Produced by MTV Entertainment Studios and 101 Studios, TULSA KING will premiere with two episodes on Sunday, November 13 on Paramount+.

TULSA KING follows New York mafia capo Dwight “The General” Manfredi (Stallone), after he is released from prison after 25 years and is unceremoniously exiled by his boss to set up shop in Tulsa, Okla. 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. Delany will play Margaret, an affluent and influential equestrian and owner of a sprawling horse farm and animal preserve. She is a formidable presence and a trustee of the Annie Oakley Society.

Delany made her mark as Army nurse Colleen McMurphy on “China Beach,” for which she received two Emmy Awards and four nominations for Best Dramatic Actress. Delany also received an Emmy nomination for a guest-starring role on the CBS drama “Family Law.” Delany’s additional television credits include “Body of Proof,” “Desperate Housewives,” “Hand of God,” and most recently “The American Guest.” She has also been the voice of Lois Lane on “Superman: TAS,” “The Batman” and “Justice League” and “Batman: Mask of the Phantasm.” On film, she has appeared in “Light Sleeper,” “Housesitter,” “Tombstone” and “Fly Away Home” among many others. Theater credits include “A Life” and “Translations” on Broadway, “Blood Moon” off-Broadway, “Much Ado About Nothing” at the Old Globe Theatre, the Pulitzer prize-winning play “Dinner with Friends,” “The Parisian Woman,” “The Night of the Iguana,” “Collective Rage: A Play in Five Betties,” and most recently the premiere of “Good Night Nobody” at the McCarter Theater.

The series also stars Andrea Savage (“I’m Sorry”), Martin Starr (“Silicon Valley”), Max Casella (“The Tender Bar”), Domenick Lombardozzi (“The Irishman”), Vincent Piazza (“Boardwalk Empire”), Jay Will (“The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel”), A.C. Peterson (“Superman & Lois”) and Garrett Hedlund (“The United States vs. Billie Holiday”).

Mirroring the successful 2021 launches of 1883 and MAYOR OF KINGSTOWN, Paramount Network will air a linear sneak peek of TULSA KING’s debut episode on Nov. 13, as a special simulcast event immediately following the highly anticipated Season 5 premiere of “Yellowstone.” Similarly, the second episode of TULSA KING will air behind “Yellowstone” on Nov. 20. All remaining episodes will be available to stream weekly on Sundays exclusively on Paramount+. TULSA KING will also premiere on Paramount+ in Canada on November 13, followed by a premiere in Australia and The UK on November 14. The series will air later this year on Paramount+ in Latin America and in additional territories upon the launch of the service.

TULSA KING is executive produced by Sheridan, Winter, Stallone, David C. Glasser, Ron Burkle, Bob Yari, David Hutkin, Allen Coulter and Braden Aftergood.

TULSA KING is the latest addition to Sheridan’s growing slate on Paramount+ which includes 1883, MAYOR OF KINGSTOWN and the upcoming series LIONESS, 1883: THE BASS REEVES STORY, LAND MAN and 1923.
