Kevin Costner will narrate and produce a Yellowstone documentary for Fox Nation
Fox Nation is getting a piece of “Yellowstone.”
The streaming service owned and operated by Fox News announced Tuesday that Kevin Costner, star of television’s most-watched drama, has signed on to host and narrate a four-part documentary series on the history ofin commemoration of its 150th anniversary.
Costner’s Territory Films is teaming with Warm Springs Productions to make the four hourlong episodes of “Yellowstone: One-Fifty.” New episodes will launch weekly this fall on Fox Nation, which has a paid monthly subscription fee of $5.99.
Kevin Costner is in a tux. With a rifle.
“We are thrilled to collaborate with an iconic actor and filmmaker of Kevin Costner’s caliber on this project,” said Fox Nation President Jason Klarman in a statement.
Costner plays Montana rancher John Dutton on “Yellowstone,” which has defied gravity in the current TV environment with its ability to attract a massive audience on conventional TV. Paramount recently ordered a fifth season of the series, which has generated a successful prequel with “1883.”
Licht will take over the news organization in May after Discovery completes its acquisition of CNN parent WarnerMedia.
The Season 4 finale was watched by 9.3 million viewers. It’s Oscar winner Costner’s first TV series, filmed at the Chief Joseph Ranch in Darby, Mont.
Fox Nation carries on-demand editions of prime-time conservative opinion programming that airs on Fox News. But the service has evolved since its 2018 launch into a lifestyle-oriented streaming service with unscripted programs and acquired films that appeal to the more traditional sensibility of its cable audience.
