The first TV series regular role for Stallone throughout his career, Tulsa King “follows New York mafia capo Dwight “The General” Manfredi, who, as he’s released from prison after 25 years, is unceremoniously exiled by his boss to set up shop in Tulsa, OK. Realizing that his mob family might 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.”
Tulsa King marks the latest Paramount+ project from creator Taylor Sheridan, following Yellowstone, Mayor of Kingstown and 1883, and sees Stallone starring alongside Domenick Lombardozzi (The Family), Max Casella (Jackie), and Vincent Piazza (Boardwalk Empire). It is expected to premiere on the streamer later this year.
