"1883" - A "Yellowstone" Origin Story on Paramount+

The 'Old West' prequel to the modern western TV series "Yellowstone", is titled "1883", starring Tim McGraw as 'James Dutton', Faith Hill as 'Margaret Dutton' and Sam Elliott as cowboy scout 'Shea Brennan', now streaming on Paramount+:

"...'1883' follows the 'Dutton' family as they embark on a journey west through the 'Great Plains' toward the last bastion of untamed America. It is a stark retelling of Western expansion, and an intense study of one family fleeing poverty to seek a better future in America’s promised land — Montana..." 

"This is truly a dream job", said McGraw. "The 'Duttons' are tremendous characters and it's so thrilling to be able to bring them to life. 

"As a kid growing up riding horses, you think about dream jobs like this and I am just so excited to work with this amazing cast and crew"

Cast also includes Isabel May, LaMonica Garrett and Billy Bob Thornton as 'Marshal Jim Courtright'.
