New York-set TV shows on the mafia is certainly nothing new but Tulsa King offers something different and we chat to one of its stars, Garrett Hedlund, to talk about this and more.
From creator Taylor Sheridan (Yellowstone, Hell or High Water) with Terence Winter (The Sopranos, Boardwalk Empire) as Executive Producer it is easy to see why there is a buzz about the show. Of course, with Sylvester Stallone as its lead star in what is his first major role on TV it takes it to a whole new level.
Ahead of the premiere of Tulsa King on Paramount+ we speak to Garrett Hedlund and talk about how he became involved in the project and offers his thoughts on a sequel to 2010’s TRON: Legacy.

Tulsa King is available on Paramount+ from Monday 14th November
The series follows New York mafia capo, Dwight Manfredi, just after he is released from prison after 25 years and unceremoniously exiled by his boss to set up shop in Tulsa. Realizing that his mob family may 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.
