Yellowstone creator Taylor Sheridan details how he went from playing bit parts to helming the massively popular Neo-Western: 'Our job as artists is to hold a mirror up to the world'

Taylor Sheridan, the writer, producer, director, and actor of the popular TV show Yellowstone, spoke to Variety about his success leading the Neo-Western series. Sheridan believes that veracity is essential to the show's popularity, and he achieved it by immersing himself in ranch life and Montana culture. Yellowstone has been growing in popularity and led to the creation of spin-off shows. In addition to co-creating the series, Sheridan wrote or co-wrote every episode and directed the first season and parts of the fourth. Kevin Costner, who stars in the show, was attracted to its dialogue and Western setting.
