“Set in the fierce, competitive world of bull riding, the series follows a megastar champion (played by McGraw) facing a life-or-death crossroads when confronted by the arrival of a fearless young rider whose very existence challenges his ways and unearths secrets that force him to reckon with his past,” reads the official synopsis.

The project was created and written by Brandon Camp (John Doe), who will serve as co-showrunner alongside Taylor Elmore (Justified).

In addition to starring, McGraw will also executive-produce the series with Camp, Elmore, Tim Staples, Brian Kaplan and Joel Bergvall (for Down Home), and David Ellison, Dana Goldberg and Matt Thunell (for
Skydance Television).

McGraw (and his real-life wife Faith Hill) most recently headlined creator Taylor Sheridan’s Yellowstone prequel miniseries 1883, which ran for 10 episodes on Paramount+ in 2021-2022. The actor/musician’s credits also include the movies Country Strong, The Blind Side and Friday Night Lights.
