Tulsa King teaser features Sylvester Stallone testing loyalty while living a life of crime

Sylvester Stallone is giving snitches no quarter in the new Tulsa King teaser. In the teaser, we find Stallone’s Dwight “The General” Manfredi fresh out of the clink and looking to pick up the pieces of his old life.

“When I was seventeen, I wanted to be a gangster,” Manfredi says in the Tulsa teaser. “I married this life, and now, after keeping my mouth shut, I’m going to see if it married me back.”

The footage finds Manfredi reluctantly accepting a job that brings about his violent tendencies and penchant for small cups of espresso. At 75 years old, Stallone looks outstanding in Taylor Sheridan’s new series, and we can’t wait to watch him get rough.

Mirroring the successful 2021 launches of 1883 and Mayor of Kingstown, Paramount Network will air a linear sneak peek of Tulsa King’s debut episode on November 13 as a special simulcast event immediately following the highly anticipated Season 5 premiere of Yellowstone. Similarly, the second episode of Tulsa King will air behind Yellowstone on November 20. All remaining episodes will be available to stream weekly on Sundays exclusively on Paramount+.

Tulsa King follows New York mafia capo Dwight “The General” Manfredi (Stallone) just after being released from prison after 25 years and unceremoniously exiled by his boss to set up shop in Tulsa, 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 might as well be another planet. The series also stars Andrea Savage (I’m Sorry), Martin Starr (Silicon Valley), Max Casella (The Tender Bar), Domenick Lombardozzi (The Irishman), Vincent Piazza (Boardwalk Empire), Jay Will (The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel), A.C. Peterson (Superman & Lois) with Garrett Hedlund (The United States vs. Billie Holiday).

The series will be executive produced by Sheridan, Winter, Stallone, David C. Glasser, Ron Burkle, Bob Yari, David Hutkin, and Allen Coulter. Braden Aftergood is also set to executive produce.

Tulsa King is a unique project for us at JoBlo, seeing as Sly told us about the show before it was announced. We’re extremely excited about the series and can’t wait to see how it turns out.

What do you think of today’s Tulsa King teaser trailer? Are you excited for Sheridan and Stallone to team up? What do you think Manfredi orders from the local cafe to go alongside his drink? A scone? A piece of coffee cake, perhaps? I bet it’s a birthday cake-flavored cake pop. Let us know your thoughts on the teaser in the comments section below.
