Jeremy Renner is set to follow up his upcoming Marvel Studios series Hawkeye with another streaming show, with Paramount+ and MTV Entertainment Studios announcing that the Oscar-nominated actor is set to team with Taylor Sheridan (Yellowstone) and Antoine Fuqua (Training Day) for Mayor of Kingstown.

The series has been co-created by Sheridan and Hugh Dillon and “follows the McLusky family – power brokers in Kingstown, Michigan where the business of incarceration is the only thriving industry.  Tackling themes of systemic racism, corruption and inequality, the series provides a stark look at their attempt to bring order and justice to a town that has neither.”

“I am excited to dig into the complex and rough-around-the-edges character of Mike McLusky (the Mayor of Kingstown),” said Jeremy Renner. “In a world otherwise forgotten in society, Mike serves as a flawed system of checks and balances. Taylor has brought to life a layered and poignant universe that is not only incredibly intriguing but also more relevant than ever.”

“When Taylor told me about Mayor of Kingstown, I immediately wanted to be a part of it,” added Antoine Fuqua.  “The series offers a comprehensive look into the brutal prison system where sociopolitical issues run rampant. Prisons are a forgotten world to most of the population and yet represent a microcosm of society as a whole.”
