'Yellowstone' (June 20)

Paramount Network
The last time Kevin Costner turned to TV – five years ago – he won an Emmy and a Golden Globe for Hatfields and McCoys. The star returns to the small screen (as he probably calls it) with the Western drama from Taylor Sheridan, who's been on a screenwriting roll (Hell or High WaterSicario). Costner gets his Lorne Greene on as a stubborn old rancher who wants to keep doing things the old-fashioned way: "Ranching is the only business where the goal is to break even – survive another season." He's got land developers and oil tycoons poisoning the water with fracking; he's got heat from the Native American reservation next door. He's also got his issues with wife Gretchen Mol, who somewhat bizarrely plays the 45-year-old mom of 39-year-old Wes Bentley. (Like ranchers, Hollywood can be slow to embrace change.) RS
