A new trailer has arrived for the Showtime Limited Series about the life of country music legends, George Jones and Tammy Wynette, starring Jessica Chastain and Michael Shannon.
The six-episode drama was previously set to air on Paramount Network. Instead, the series premiere will now air simultaneously on both Showtime and Paramount Network commercial-free on Dec. 4 at 9 p.m. ET/PT immediately after a new episode of “Yellowstone.”
“Jessica and Michael are truly extraordinary as Tammy and George and their searing performances and undeniable chemistry bring to life the legendary relationship of the King and Queen of country music,” said Chris McCarthy, President and CEO of Showtime and Paramount Media Networks. “The creators and the entire cast have delivered a series with the subtlety, nuance and complexity that are the hallmarks of the Showtime brand and what our viewers’ deserve and demand.”
Created by Abe Sylvia (The Eyes of Tammy Faye) and directed by John Hillcoat (The Road), the six-part series stars Chastain as Tammy Wynette, the first lady of country music, while Shannon plays her husband George Jones. The series is produced by MTV Entertainment Studios, 101 Studios, Freckle Films, Mad Chance, Brolin Productions, Aunt Sylvia’s Moving Picture Co. and Blank Films Inc.
