Veteran actor AC Peterson has signed on to star in the forthcoming Paramount Plus series Tusla King. He has joined Sylvester Stallone, Max Casella, Domenick Lombardozzi, Vincent Piazza, and Jay Will on the cast. Peterson is onboard to play the character of Stallone’s ailing father.
The series follows New York mafia capo Dwight “The General” Manfredi (Stallone) just after he is released from prison after 25 years and unceremoniously exiled by his boss to set up shop in Tulsa, Oklahoma.
“Realising 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 to him might as well be another planet,” reads the plotline.
Tusla King is created and executive produced by Taylor Sheridan. Terrence Winter is showrunning and executive producing the show. It is made under the banners of MTV Entertainment Studios and 101 Studios.
