A TV series starring Sylvester Stallone will be filmed in Tulsa, with dates announced during the casting call | Local News
When a new TV series starring Sylvester Stallone was announced last month, it was unclear if “Tulsa King” would actually be filmed in the city, lending his name to the show’s title.
We now know that “Tulsa King” is coming to Oklahoma, and Tulsans have a chance to appear in the gangster-themed Paramount+ series.
Norman-based Freihofer Casting released casting call information Thursday, with plans to film soon in Tulsa and Oklahoma City, for the first round of background and extra artists.
Created by Taylor Sheridan, who also created the Paramount Network television series “Yellowstone,” “Tulsa King” is about 75-year-old mobster Dwight “The General” Manfredi (Stallone) who, after being released from a 25 years in prison, is sent by the son of his former boss to settle in Tulsa.
“The ‘Tulsa King’ is a very interesting story,” Stallone said in a video announcing the project. “He’s a lifelong gangster. He took the fall of his bosses and went to jail for 25 years and kept his mouth shut, and now he’s out. Next thing you know, he’s in Tulsa. He now has to start a new life and create a gang because they want him to earn a living. This is where the fun begins.
