Sylvester Stallone’s ‘Tulsa King’ Makes Bold Move to CBS After Paramount+ Triumph

Prepare for a summer sizzle as Sylvester Stallone’s riveting drama, Tulsa King, originally a Paramount+ sensation, takes a triumphant leap onto CBS. Riding high on the success of Yellowstone’s crossover hit, CBS aims to captivate new audiences by featuring the first season of Tulsa King ahead of its Season 2 premiere, exclusively on Paramount+ this fall.

This strategic move is a testament to the dynamic synergy within the Paramount Global family, with CBS, Paramount+, and MTV Entertainment Studios collaborating to broaden the reach of their compelling content. Amy Reisenbach, CBS Entertainment President, underscores the collective effort to achieve shared victories across different platforms.

Tulsa King, produced by MTV Entertainment Studios and 101 Studios, has earned its stripes as one of Paramount+’s top-performing series, ranking second only to Taylor Sheridan’s 1923. The November 2022 debut set new records for subscriber growth on Paramount+ in a single day, reaffirming its status as a major draw.

Tulsa King

The narrative of Tulsa King unfolds around Dwight The General Manfredi (Sylvester Stallone), a New York mafia capo venturing into uncharted territory in Tulsa, Oklahoma, after 25 years in prison.

Exiled by his boss, Dwight navigates the unfamiliar terrain, assembling an eclectic crew to carve out a new criminal empire. The first season’s stellar cast includes Andrea Savage, Martin Starr, Max Casella, and other talented actors.

Creator Taylor Sheridan, joined by executive producer Terence Winter (departing after Season 1), orchestrates the show’s compelling storyline. The executive producer lineup boasts names like Stallone, David C. Glasser, and Ron Burkle, promising a continued blend of gripping narrative and powerhouse performances.

As Tulsa King gears up for its CBS debut, viewers can anticipate a thrilling summer ride before the series resumes its exclusive run on Paramount+ for Season 2. The bold move exemplifies the commitment to bringing premium content to diverse audiences, cementing CBS as a go-to destination for exceptional storytelling.
