Yellowstone’s Chief Discloses the Alarming Origin of the 1923 Spin-off: Taylor Sheridan is not a fan of lavish Hollywood parties. The Oscar-nominated director was thousands of miles away working on Friday night while Paramount+ revealed the global premiere of the newest Sheridan universe entry, the Yellowstone prequel 1923 starring Harrison Ford and Helen Mirren.
According to 101 Studios CEO David Glasser, executive producer of Sheridan series like 1923, Yellowstone, 1883, Tulsa King, Mayor of Kingstown, and others, “he’s in a hotel room in Las Vegas right now cutting future episodes of this show.” Taylor is one of those individuals who excel in his field.
He enjoys living a ranch lifestyle and writing there; that’s where he feels most at home. He approaches everything in a cathartic manner, and when he is in that zone, he excels.
No one could blame Sheridan for skipping the event due to his bloated schedule. With celebrities like Ford and Mirren, he may not have been required to promote the event to the media assembled outside American Legion Post 43 on a rainy night in the center of Hollywood.
His 1923 family was also more than glad to brag about their boss by discussing what makes his creations so exceptional while he was away. His shows continue to achieve rating records, proving the point to viewers.
When 1923 premieres on Dec. 18, Paramount+ will find out if it can accomplish the same. The latest chapter of the Dutton family saga stars Ford as Jacob Dutton and Mirren as Cara Dutton.
The series tackles the early 20th century when the mountain West was plagued by pandemics, a record-breaking drought, the repeal of Prohibition, and the Great Depression.
The cast of the MTV Entertainment Studios, 101 Studios, and Bosque Ranch production includes Marley Shelton, Michelle Randolph, James Badge Dale, Brian Geraghty, Darren Mann, Aminah Nieves, Jerome Flynn, Sebastian Roché, Tim DeKay, Julia Schlaepfer, Jennifer Ehle, and Timothy Dalton.
The Hollywood Reporter asked Ford, Mirren, and a few other cast members to discuss working with Sheridan and what it was like to enter his world on the red carpet at Friday night’s screening.
He has impressive horsemanship. You might not expect to discover a genuine athlete in such a gifted writer and intelligent thinker, yet that’s what he is. Harrison Ford.
“He looks pretty detached. You don’t want to modify a word in the script that he reads aloud to you. You want to follow the instructions perfectly because they are written with extraordinary precision yet without strain.
It’s incredibly wonderful to contribute to a franchise in a setting that is so unique to American television. Nothing else is exactly like it.” Sheila Mirren Taylor has a solid reputation. He is an accomplished writer, director, and producer, and the universe and characters he has built are vast and epic.
It is astounding how he manages to develop this many characters while providing a satisfying narrative. He invited us all to Cowboy Camp for pre-production, the time before we began shooting.
“We were all cast members and were asked to Montana for two weeks where we rode horses and practiced driving and roping cattle. I had to get my buggy driving license.
He wanted us to become familiar with ranch life so that it would permeate our pores, but he also wanted us to do it so that we could connect and feel like we belonged to something extraordinary, which we do”. Marley Shelton
When I first met him, I had completely different expectations. The procedure and how he hired some of the younger performers on the show by giving them a chance over some extremely big-name actors were among the fascinating tales he told me about his time as an actor. We all need a break, so I adore that. He gave it to a few of the actors on the program and me perhaps 15 or 20 years ago.
That, in my opinion, was fantastic and outstanding. He has a great deal of empathy with actors because he is one. Despite his harsh exterior, he has a deep sense of empathy.
I think he does excellent casting and doesn’t care what you’ve done. He chooses the best candidates for the part to cast. Everyone raises the bar when you arrive at work. He starts it off and creates it, but he’s also quite hospitable and provides you with all the resources you need to get there. Bryan Geraghty
“I received a text from Taylor asking if I should reassemble the band and play some shows with us. The fact that he texted me made me smile, so I said yes. Let’s do it; tell me the time and location. First, he possesses a rare aptitude for recognizing and appreciating excellent talent.
He also has a compelling viewpoint. Taylor is a talented author. He develops incredible characters, and because he is such a fantastic leader, all the department heads and actors find inspiration in him.
He also has a very distinct point of view, which is excellent, and he lets us work and develops with him. The ideal kind of relationship is one like that. Being a part of this family is lovely”. ― Janie Bryant, a costume designer (1883)
He is a gifted writer, and the way he creates his characters gives them such depth and individual plotlines, regardless of how many circumstances occur. Every character is so distinctively their own, and it’s tough for a writer to accomplish that, especially given the number of shows he writes for. Michele Randolph
“It’s impossible to put down his writing. I was unable to put the scripts down once we received them. I’ve never had an experience like that before, where I started reading a script and could not stop. Despite how difficult some of the sequences were, I persisted in moving forward. I could read Taylor Sheridan’s writing indefinitely.” Leenah Robinson
He has a lot of experience acting, writing and rewriting screenplays, and twisting and turning lines to make his characters credible because he is also an actor. A wealthy man talks differently than a poor man, and he is perfectly aware of this when he writes about a character like myself, the captain of a small ship. He writes very, very much like [Quentin Tarantino] and the Coen brothers.
Characters argue and converse as necessary. Being on set was incredibly relaxing since it was like filming a fantastic movie. We didn’t need to move quickly at all. There was time.
That’s unusual for television, but as he always has, this trailblazer knows how to produce, and if it costs a little bit more, then what? The end product will be much, much better. Paul Stormare

“Funny enough, before reading the script, I knew nothing about Taylor Sheridan or Yellowstone, but I knew immediately that I had to take action. It’s an honor to share our stories, so when I went for my audition, I couldn’t stop sobbing.
I feel incredibly fortunate to have worked with and spoken with my family and other professionals to ensure that everything was accurate given the lack of Indigenous representation in our society.
Our responsibility is to share our tales in a way that makes our youth and elders feel secure and heard. Taylor made it possible by providing the stories”. Aminah Nieves
