TRAILER OF THE WEEK

Our trailer of the week is for Tulsa King, a new crime drama series with big talent involved both onscreen and behind the scenes.

Rambo and Rocky’s Sylvester Stallone stars in the series as New York mobster Dwight “The General” Manfredi, who has just been released from prison after 25 years.

Enthused by his release, he is disappointed when his boss exiles him to settle in Tulsa, Oklahoma.

“Realizing that his mafia family may not have their 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 for him might as well be another planet,” reads the plot synopsis.

The series co-stars with Stallone are Andrea Savage (Step Brothers), Garrett Hedlund (Tron: Legacy) and Martin Starr (Silicon Valley), as well as familiar faces from some of the best crime dramas of recent years like Domenick Lombardozzi (The Wire), Max Casella (The Sopranos) and Vincent Piazza (Boardwalk Empire).

Meanwhile, the series is produced by Taylor Sheridan (Yellowstone) and will be presented by Terence Winter who wrote about The Sopranos, wrote the screenplay for The Wolf of Wall Street and created Boardwalk Empire.

Can Tulsa King live up to some of these big plans? You can find out when it premieres on the Paramount+ streaming service on November 13.
