What is ‘Mayor of Kingstown’ about?

The creator of Yellowstone, Taylor Sheridan, produced Mayor of Kingstown with Hugh Dillon, who also stars in the cast. Dillon took inspiration from his hometown of Kingston, Ontario, to create the series about the thriving prison system. In episode 1, viewers meet Mike McLusky (Renner), the right-hand man to the “Mayor” Mitch McLusky (Kyle Chandler). Together, the two men act as power brokers to keep order and justice in Kingstown between the police, criminals, inmates, correctional officers, and politicians. The series tackles numerous contemporary issues in America, including systemic racism, corruption, and inequality.

In addition to Mitch and Mike, the McLuskys have another brother — Kyle (Taylor Handley). The youngest brother is a detective for the Kingstown Police Department and attempts to stay out of his brothers’ business dealings. However, he inevitably gets roped into the business.

Dianne Wiest plays the McLusky brothers’ mother, Miriam, in the Mayor of Kingstown cast. She is a college professor who also volunteers to teach inmates in the female prison. Dillon also joins the cast as Kyle’s partner at the Police Department.
