Dana Delany joined the cast of ‘Tulsa King’ opposite Sylvester Stallone at Paramount+, Variety learned exclusively.
Stallone directs the series, along with other cast members including Andrea Savage, Martin Starr, Max Casella, Domenick Lombardozzi, Vincent Piazza, Jay Will, AC Peterson and Garrett Hedlund.
The show follows New York mob capo Dwight “The General” Manfredi (Stallone), just after his release from prison after 25 years and his harsh exile by his boss to settle in Tulsa, Okla. Realizing that his mafia family may not have their best interests in mind, Dwight slowly builds a crew from an unlikely group of characters to help him establish a new criminal empire in a place that for him might as well be another planet.
Delany will play Margaret, an affluent and influential equestrian and owner of a sprawling horse farm and animal sanctuary. She is a formidable presence and administrator of the Annie Oakley Society.
Delany is a five-time Emmy nominee and a two-time Emmy winner. She won Best Actress in a Drama Series for her role as Army nurse Colleen McMurphy in ABC’s “China Beach” in 1989, winning in the same category for the same show two years later. She was recently nominated for her guest role on the CBS series “Family Law.” Delany’s other TV credits include “Body of Proof”, “Desperate Housewives”, “Hand of God”, and “The American Guest”. She also provided the voice of Lois Lane in several DC animated productions.
She is replaced by UTA and Jackoway Austen Tyerman.
“Tulsa King” is produced by MTV Entertainment Studios with 101 Studios. Sheridan co-created the series with Terrence Winter, with the two executive producers along with Stallone, David C. Glasser, Ron Burkle, Bob Yari, David Hutkin, Allen Coulter and Braden Aftergood.
