Paramount+ is ramping up its slate with the crime drama series Mayor of Kingstown.
The trailer promises a star studded crime drama by some known people behind it.
“Mayor of Kingstown” is co-created by Sheridan (“Wind River,” “Yellowstone,” “Those Who Wish Me Dead”) and stars Jeremy Renner, Dianne Wiest, Kyle Chandler, Hugh Dillon (who is also co-creating along with Sheridan), Taylor Handley, Emma Laird and Tobi Bamtefa. Additionally, the series will be executive produced by Sheridan, Dillon, Renner, and also “Training Day,” “The Equalizer,” and “The Guilty” filmmaker Antoine Fuqua.
What Is Mayor of Kingstown About?
The official synopsis for the series is as follows:
Mayor of Kingstown follows the McLusky family – power brokers in Kingstown, Mich., where the business of incarceration is the only thriving industry. Tackling themes of systemic racism, corruption and inequality, the series provides a stark look at their attempt to bring order and justice to a town that has neither.
Jeremy Renner said this when the series was announced:
“I am excited to dig into the complex and rough-around-the-edges character of Mike McLusky (the Mayor of Kingstown). In a world otherwise forgotten in society, Mike serves as a flawed system of checks and balances. Taylor has brought to life a layered and poignant universe that is not only incredibly intriguing but also more relevant than ever.”
The Mayor of Kingstown debuts exclusively on Parampunt+ November 14, 2021.
