TVLine Items: Delany Joins Stallone Series, Rookie: Feds Casting and More

Dana Delany Tulsa King

The mob stands no chance against Dana Delany: The Body of Proof and Desperate Housewives actress has joined Sylvester Stallone’s upcoming drama Tulsa King, from creator Taylor Sheridan (Yellowstone, 1883) and executive producer Terence Winter (The Sopranos), who serves as showrunner and writer.

The series — premiering with two episodes Sunday, Nov. 13 on Paramount+ — follows “New York mafia capo Dwight ‘The General’ Manfredi (Stallone), after he is released from prison after 25 years and is unceremoniously exiled by his boss to set up shop in Tulsa, Okla,” per the official synopsis. “Realizing that his mob family may not have his best interests in mind, Dwight slowly builds a crew from a group of unlikely characters to help him establish a new criminal empire in a place that to him might as well be another planet.”

Delany will play Margaret, an affluent and influential equestrian who is a formidable presence and a trustee of the Annie Oakley Society.
