SAM ELLIOTT AND GLOBAL SUPERSTARS TIM MCGRAW AND FAITH HILL TO STAR IN 1883





ACADEMY AWARD® NOMINEE LEGEND SAM ELLIOTT AND GLOBAL SUPERSTARS TIM MCGRAW AND FAITH HILL TO STAR IN MTV ENTERTAINMENT STUDIOS’ “YELLOWSTONE” PREQUEL “1883″ FOR PARAMOUNT+

NEW YORK – Paramount+, the streaming service from ViacomCBS, and MTV Entertainment Studios today announced that Academy Award® nominee legend Sam Elliott will star alongside global superstars Tim McGraw and Faith Hill in the service’s upcoming original series 1883. Created by Taylor Sheridan, 1883 is the highly anticipated prequel to the Emmy® nominated “Yellowstone.” 101 Studios and Bosque Ranch Productions will serve as production partners on the series.

1883 follows the Dutton family as they embark on a journey west through the Great Plains toward the last bastion of untamed America. It is a stark retelling of Western expansion, and an intense study of one family fleeing poverty to seek a better future in America’s promised land — Montana.

Elliott is set to play Shea Brennan, a tough as nails, handsome cowboy with immense sadness in his past. He has the herculean task of guiding a group from Texas to Montana, and he does not suffer fools. McGraw and Hill will portray James and Margaret Dutton, the patriarch and matriarch of the Dutton family, respectively. Additional cast to be announced.

“It all starts with the writing, and Taylor Sheridan is a brilliant writer,” said Elliott. “I think the western genre speaks clearly to both of us. The classic struggles of man against man, man against nature and man against himself. It’s all there, in 1883, and I’m honored to be a part of it.”

“This is truly a dream job,” said Tim McGraw. “Taylor has found a way of storytelling that brilliantly creates these epic dramas and family sagas with so much depth and creativity. The Duttons are tremendous characters and it’s so thrilling to be able to bring them to life. As a kid growing up riding horses, you think about dream jobs like this and I am just so excited to work with this amazing cast and crew.”

“This is the opportunity of a lifetime,” said Faith Hill. “The Duttons are a formidable family and it is an absolute dream to bring such a strong female character like Margaret Dutton to life. I am humbled and honored to work with Taylor and his entire team.”

“’Yellowstone’ is a massive hit show with tens of millions of fans – with ‘1883,” we are taking those fans back to the origin story, and in the process, turning the ‘Yellowstone’ world into a global hit franchise to fuel the growth of Paramount+,” said Chris McCarthy, President/CEO, MTV Entertainment Group. “We are thrilled to have Sam, Tim and Faith as the stars of Taylor Sheridan’s new series exclusively for Paramount+ around the world.”

“We are thrilled to have Academy Award nominee and acting legend Sam and hugely talented, award-winning artists Faith and Tim all join the Taylor Sheridan universe,” said David Glasser, CEO of 101 Studios. “Taylor’s proven his immense capability of creating captivating characters and immersive worlds and there’s no exception here with 1883 and Sam, Faith and Tim’s characters. We are looking forward to this further expansion of the world of Yellowstone and bringing it to audiences everywhere.”

Elliott received an Academy Award nomination and a National Board of Review Award for his performance in “A Star Is Born.” His numerous other film credits include “The Big Lebowski,” “Tombstone” and “The Contender.” On television, his credits include a Critics Choice-award-winning performance in “Justified” as well as “Parks & Rec,” “The Ranch” and the upcoming “MacGruber.”

McGraw is a GRAMMY Award-winning entertainer, author, and actor who has sold more than 80 million records worldwide and dominated the charts with 44 #1 singles. His previous acting credits include “Friday Night Lights” and the Academy Award nominated film “The Blind Side.”

Hill is a five-time GRAMMY Award-winning artist who has performed twice at both the Super Bowl and the Academy Awards, sold over 40 million albums globally, and celebrated multiple #1 singles worldwide across all formats. She most recently starred in the critically acclaimed indie feature “Dixieland.”

ViacomCBS and MTV Entertainment Group sign Yellowstone co-creator Taylor Sheridan to exclusive blockbuster deal for multiple series

NEW YORK, February 5, 2021 – ViacomCBS and MTV Entertainment Group announced today that they’ve preemptively extended their relationship with Oscar® and Golden Globe® nominee Taylor Sheridan, co-creator of Yellowstone, cable’s #1 show.

Sheridan will create exclusive multi-platform content with MTV Entertainment Studios and 101 Studios under the multi-year pact which includes five cycles per year of scripted and procedural series. Content will be exclusive to ViacomCBS including but not limited to Paramount Network, Paramount+, CBS and other VCBS brands and platforms.

The third season of Yellowstone was the most watched season premiere on cable in two years drawing record-breaking numbers of 6.5M total viewers in live +3. The show – co created by Taylor Sheridan & John Linson – has also developed a rabid fan community.

On the heels of that success – viewers will get a special sneak peek at Sheridan’s new series for Paramount+ – a prequel to the smash drama – entitled Y: 1883 during the Super Bowl on Sunday, February 7th.

Y: 1883 follows the Dutton family as they embark on a journey west through the Great Plains toward the last bastion of untamed America. It is a stark retelling of Western expansion, and an intense study of one family fleeing poverty to seek a better future in America’s promised land — Montana.

The series builds on Paramount+ key strategy to franchise marquee shows and IP for which MTV Entertainment Studios will be a major supplier. It will be executive produced by Sheridan, John Linson, Art Linson, David Glasser, David Hutkin, and Bob Yari.

According to Sheridan, “I am excited to continue the story of Yellowstone and thank you to Chris, Keith and David for allowing me to keep on expanding the family for the fans.”

“Taylor Sheridan is a visionary creative whose work has reinvented genres and amassed fan bases around the globe; we are thrilled he calls ViacomCBS and MTV Entertainment his home,” said Chris McCarthy, President of MTV Entertainment. “We couldn’t be more excited to build upon our partnership with him, expand the Yellowstone universe and showcase Taylor’s boundless talent across all of our brands and platforms.”

David Glasser, CEO of 101 Studios said: “Taylor Sheridan is a master at world-building and has a singular voice that makes him one of today’s standout creators making must-watch content. Our mission at 101 is to produce content that provokes culture conversations with renowned creators at the helm of our projects, and that is exactly what we envision for this collaboration. This deal is an extension of our longstanding relationship with both ViacomCBS, MTV Entertainment Group and Taylor and we are very much looking forward to our future projects.”

ROUNDUP WRITER’S MINI-REVIEW: HBO’s series is one of the highlights of television in 2020. This is not your grandfather’s Perry Mason…not by a long shot! My wife and I watched this show unfold, week by week, as it streamed each episode in turn. We spent the days in-between installments on pins and needle, wondering what part of the mystery would unfold next. Who would do what, and why. The cast and their characterizations are simply incredible. The photography and atmosphere are spectacular. The story is amazing, with the stakes – as you would expect! – literally being life and death. Don’t miss out on owning a physical copy of Perry Mason’s first HBO season (and yes, it’s been renewed). Highly recommended!
