The intensity demonstrated by the new “Mayor of Kingstown” trailer is right in line with what fans have come to expect from Taylor Sheridan, whose previous TV project, “Yellowstone,” has become a flagship feature of the Paramount Network. While Sheridan is also currently expanding the “Yellowstone” universe with a forthcoming prequel series, the tone of “Mayor of Kingstown” sits more comfortably in a lineage with “Sicario,” a film about a brutal Mexican drug cartel, also written by Sheridan.
“Mayor of Kingstown” takes place in a fictional Michigan town called, as the title would suggest, Kingstown. A press release from Paramount describes the McClusky brothers as a part of an influential family that serves as “power brokers between the police, criminals, inmates, prison guards, and politicians, in a city completely dependent on prisons and the prisoners they contain.”
Given the strong pedigree of the show’s creator, the quality of the actors starring on the show, and the tense trailer that can now be found on YouTube, it seems like fans have a lot to look forward to when “Mayor of Kingstown” debuts. Viewers can catch that premiere on Paramount+ when the first episode goes live on November 14.
