After the release of Tulsa King in November, Sylvester Stallone's New York mafia kingpin took the whole world by surprise. We can't wait to see where all this leads next.
Tulsa King, according to Yellowstone creator Taylor Sheridan, is unlike anything on television. Following the adventures of Dwight 'The General' Manfredi as he establishes a new criminal organization in (you guessed it) Tulsa, Oklahoma, it's the type of series that seems plausible enough to be true, or at very lease based on something.
Tulsa King is a total...fiction. Sorry to disappoint. Taylor Sheridan is a well-known Hollywood filmmaker who co-created Prequels to Sicario, Hell or High Water, and Wind River. Oh, and he co-created Yellowstone's prequels in 1883 and 1923.
Sheridan's Tulsa King creation is a fiction in its own right, according to an interview with The Hollywood Reporter.
Producer David Glasser had Sheridan spitballing ideas on a Friday, and by Saturday morning there was a script in his inbox. We don't know much about screenwriting, but that has to be some sort of record.
"Taylor (Sheridan) starts to spitball the idea of a fish out of water story for an hour." Then, Saturday afternoon at 4 p.m., he goes, 'Check your inbox.' He has already written a script for Kansas City King, which is fantastic."
Now, we're not implying that an ousted mafia member who was sent across the country had no actual impact in actual life (we're certain it has), but as far as this program is concerned, it's all made up. Even the true to life ones are sometimes embellished.
Tulsa King's second season may be announced later this year or early 2024.
