Paramount+ announced on Tuesday that Landman, a new drama series from Oscar nominee Taylor Sheridan, will premiere on Sunday, November 17, 2024.

Per Paramount, Landman is a modern-day tale of fortune-seeking in the world of oil rigs set in the proverbial boomtowns of West Texas. The series is an “upstairs/downstairs story of roughnecks and wildcat billionaires fueling a boom so big, it’s reshaping our climate, our economy, and our geopolitics.” Landman is based on the podcast Boomtown, an 11-part series by Imperative Entertainment and Texas Monthly about big oil in the Permian Basin.

Landman stars Oscar-winner Billy Bob Thornton as Tommy Norris, a crisis executive at an oil company. Ali Larter, Jacob Lofland, Kayla Wallace, James Jordan, Mark Collie, Paulina Chávez, and Demi Moore also star. Jon Hamm will appear in a recurring guest role, while Andy Garcia and Michael Peña will serve as guest stars.
