Paramount+ today announced that production is underway in and around Fort Worth, Texas on Landman starring Billy Bob Thornton.
Landman is co-created by Taylor Sheridan and Christian Wallace, produced by MTV Entertainment Studios, 101 Studios and Sheridan’s Bosque Ranch Productions.
Set in the proverbial boomtowns of West Texas, Landman is a modern-day tale of fortune seeking in the world of oil rigs. Based on the notable 11-part podcast 'Boomtown,' the series is an upstairs/downstairs story of roughnecks and wildcat billionaires fuelling a boom so big, it’s reshaping our climate, our economy and our geopolitics.
In addition to Thornton, the series stars Ali Larter, Michelle Randolph, Jacob Lofland, Kayla Wallace, James Jordan, Mark Collie, and Paulina Chávez.
Landman is executive produced by Taylor Sheridan, David C Glasser, David Hutkin, Ron Burkle, Bob Yari, Christian Wallace, Geyer Kosinski, Michael Friedman and Stephen Kay. Dan Friedkin and Jason Hoch, for Imperative Development LLC, and JK Nickell and Megan Creydt, for Texas Monthly, also executive produce. Peter Feldman serves as co-executive producer.
