Paramount Network Acquires UK Rights To ‘Yellowstone’

Yellowstone is crossing the pond. Paramount Network has secured the UK rights to the Kevin Costner fronted drama series. The deal covers the first two seasons of the show. 101 Studios and Endeavor Content are handling international distribution.

Yellowstone follows the Dutton family, who control the largest contiguous cattle ranch in the United States. Amid shifting alliances, unsolved murders, open wounds, and hard-earned respect – the ranch is in constant conflict with those it borders – an expanding town, an Indian reservation, and America’s first national park.

The drama series, which was created by Taylor Sheridan, stars Kevin Costner, Luke Grimes, Kelly Reilly, Wes Bentley, Cole Hauser, Kelsey Asbille, Brecken Merrill, Jefferson White, Danny Huston and Gil Birmingham. John Linson, Art Linson, Taylor Sheridan, Kevin Costner and David C. Glasser serves as executive producers.

The acquisition stems from a larger deal brokered by Paramount Network International that will see Yellowstone premiere on their channels in the Nordics, Hungary, Poland, Latin America, Spain and Italy. The series will also be available on Paramount+ in select territories. Yellostone is commissioned by, and initially airs on, Paramount Network in the United States.

“We’re excited to bring this riveting dramatic story to Paramount’s international audiences”, said Jill Offman, Executive Vice President of Paramount Network International. “Coming off its tremendous success in the U.S., as last summer’s most watched series on cable, “Yellowstone” will complement the outstanding line-up on Paramount’s international channels.”
