Having a deep appreciation for the games, films, and books that he experienced growing up, Matt wanted to learn the inner workings of how these pieces of media were made. He graduated from Hofstra University with a Film Studies degree and a Creative Writing minor with the hope of one day making a game like the ones he grew up playing. When not writing, he plays some games, watches some professional wrestling, and spends some time with his two Golden Retrievers.
Tulsa King also may have received a boost in viewership during its special premiere because it aired right after Yellowstone's season 5 premiere. Given Yellowstone's proven popularity and Sheridan's involvement in both series, it makes sense that Paramount would want to give Tulsa King as much recognition as they could by airing its first episode after an episode of their most popular show. The star power from Stallone, the filmmaking prowess from Sheridan, and the logistics of when the Tulsa King premiere aired indicate how the show's first episode was able to beat House of the Dragon's premiere ratings.
The teaser shows Manfredi in prison and released, looking for a path. "When I was 17, I wanted to be a gangster," he says in voiceover. "I married this life, and now, after keepin' my mouth shut, I'm gonna see if it married me back."
Tulsa King is the latest addition to Sheridan's growing slate on Paramount+, including 1883, Mayor of Kingstown, and the upcoming series Lioness, 1883: the Bass Reeves Story, Land Man, and 1932 (working title).
"Tulsa" struggles from its very concept. Stallone plays Dwight Manfredi, an aging mobster just released from a 25-year prison sentence after taking the fall for his boss on a murder charge. Instead of coming home to open arms and a reward for his loyalty, he's shunted off by his employer's big-shot son to Tulsa, seemingly picked at random as a place in the middle of nowhere to stick an old gangster.

Martin Starr, who plays Bodhi, told Collider in February that a start date hasn't been set for production on Tulsa King Season 2. "I think they're working out so many details," Starr said. The actor added that even the filming location for Season 2 could change.
Dwight Manfredi is fresh out of federal prison after serving 25 years for a murder that wasn't even really his fault, and neither his mafia family nor his real family want him around. So his boss in the Invernizzi crime family sends him to Tulsa for a fresh start. Even though he's a fish out of water, he takes to the honky-tonkin' city swimmingly, introducing old-school New Yawk City mobster swagger to the locals. He sets up a crew, which includes his driver, Tyson (Jay Will); Manny (Max Casella), a former Invernizzi soldier who fled to Tulsa years ago and gets back into the life when Dwight comes to town; Bodhi (Martin Starr), the owner of a weed dispensary Dwight "partners" with on a money laundering venture; and Mitch (Garrett Hedlund), the well-connected ex-con owner of the Bred-2-Buck bar. Dwight strikes up a romantic relationship with Stacy Beale (Andrea Savage), an ATF agent who's conflicted over her feelings for the unrepentant felon and runs afoul of the local kingpin, biker gang leader Waltrip (Ritchie Coster), leading to violent conflict between the two crews.
