Hailing from Yellowstone co-creator Taylor Sheridan, the show centers on influential New York mafia member Dwight “The General” Manfredi (played by Sylvester Stallone), who is exiled by his boss to set up shop in Tulsa, Oklahoma after serving 25 years in prison.

“Realizing that his mob family may not have his best interests in mind,” per the official logline, “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.”
