PAR takes the reins on The Official Yellowstone Podcast
101 Studios, Producer of cable’s #1 series Yellowstone (Paramount Network, MTVE Studios) has partnered with Podcast Ad Reps to spearhead sales for the Yellowstone Official Podcast.
The Official Yellowstone Podcast will be hosted by Jefferson White (wrangler Jimmy on the show), and will feature guest appearances with cast and crew members. Guests for the podcast’s season one will include co-creator and Academy Award nominee Taylor Sheridan, Kelly Reilly, Cole Hauser, Luke Grimes, Gil Birmingham, Wes Bentley, Kelsey Asbille, Ryan Bingham, Jen Landon, Mo’ Brings Plenty, Forrie Smith, Ian Bohen, and more. The podcast will also welcome stars from the upcoming Yellowstone prequel 1883 starring Sam Elliott, Tim McGraw, Faith Hill, Isabel May, and LaMonica Garrett.
Yellowstone, now in its 4th season, chronicles the Dutton family, led by John Dutton, who controls the largest contiguous cattle ranch in the United States. Amid shifting alliances, unsolved murders, open wounds, and hard-earned respect – the ranch is in constant conflict with those it borders – an expanding town, an Indian reservation, and America’s first national park.
Following Season 4 of Yellowstone on December 19th is the launch of 1883, a Yellowstone origin story. Created by Taylor Sheridan, 1883 follows the Dutton family as they embark on a journey west through the Great Plains toward the last bastion of untamed America. It is a stark retelling of Western expansion, and an intense study of one family fleeing poverty to seek a better future in America’s promised land — Montana.
“We clicked with PAR’s professionalism and deep experience providing monetization for limited series podcasts,” said Matt Lipson, EVP Content Innovation and Digital for 101 Studios.
“We’re huge fans of the show,” says Podcast Ad Reps President Rick Selah, “so when presented with the opportunity to help the studio launch the Official Yellowstone Podcast, we knew there are brands ready to saddle up with this great franchise.”
“Any comparable content like that we’ve experienced with The Mandalorian or Rick & Morty has been a massive success for brand marketers,” says PAR CRO Anthony Savelli. “The Yellowstone audience is so loyal and so engaged we expect to sell out both the Official Yellowstone Podcast and the Official 1883 Podcast before the December holiday break.”
