Our trailer of the week is for Tulsa King, a new crime drama series with some major talent involved both onscreen and behind the scenes.

Sylvester Stallone of Rambo and Rocky fame stars in the show as New York mafioso Dwight "The General" Manfredi, who has just been released from prison after 25 years.

Having been excited about his release, he is disappointed when his boss exiles him to set up shop all the way out in Tulsa in Oklahoma.

"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," the plot synopsis reads.

Co-starring in the series with Stallone are Andrea Savage (Step Brothers), Garrett Hedlund (Tron: Legacy) and Martin Starr (Silicon Valley), as well as some familiar faces from some of the best crime dramas of recent years like Domenick Lombardozzi (The Wire), Max Casella (The Sopranos) and Vincent Piazza (Boardwalk Empire).

Meanwhile, the series is produced by Taylor Sheridan (Yellowstone) and will be showrun by Terence Winter who wrote on The Sopranos, penned the screenplay for The Wolf of Wall Street and created Boardwalk Empire.

Can Tulsa King live up to some of those great projects? You can find out when it premieres on the Paramount+ streaming service on 13 November.
