NEW SERIES "THE LAST COWBOY" FROM ACADEMY AWARD(R) NOMINEE TAYOR SHERIDAN - PREMIERES WEDNESDAY, JULY 24 AT 11 P.M. ET/PT, FOLLOWING CABLE'S MOST-WATCHED SUMMER SERIES "YELLOWSTONE," ON PARAMOUNT NETWORK

New Documentary-Competition Series Focuses on High-Stakes World of Elite Horsemanship with $1 Million Purse on the Line

New York, NY, July 17, 2019 - The Last Cowboy, a new unscripted series spotlighting the highly skilled horsemen and trainers that compete in the intense, high-stakes world of professional reining, premieres on Paramount Network Wednesday, July 24 at 11 p.m. ET/PT, immediately following Yellowstone, cable's most-watched summer series currently airing its second season.

From Academy Award(R)-nominee Taylor Sheridan, writer of Hell or High Water and Sicario; writer/director of Wind River; and co-creator of the hit Paramount Network original scripted drama series Yellowstone; The Last Cowboy puts center stage the real-life men and women who compete on the professional reining circuit - a Western-based competition where riders guide horses through a precise pattern of circles, spins and stops - as they prepare for the biggest bout in the sport's history: "The Run for a Million." The series chronicles eight reiners determined to elevate and preserve the cowboy tradition as they train and engage in the exclusive, ultra-competitive athletic event.

In addition to executive producing the new unscripted series, Sheridan is also launching "The Run for a Million," reining's first-ever, arena-based competition with a $1 million purse, marking the largest in its history. The upcoming experience will take place August 15-17, 2019 at the South Point Arena and Equestrian Center in Las Vegas, and the competition will come to life in the series finale of The Last Cowboy.

The Last Cowboy is produced by Truly Original and executive produced by 101 Studios. Watch the trailer The Last Cowboy here.

The elite horsemen and women featured in The Last Cowboy are (in alphabetical order):

· Casey Deary (Weatherford, TX) - A Texas native, Deary won the coveted National Reining Horse Association (NRHA) Futurity in 2012 and 2015.

He has NRHA lifetime earnings of more than $1.7 million.

· Andre Fappani (Scottsdale, AZ) - Born and raised in Italy, Fappani followed his dream of becoming one of the all-time leading trainers of reining. For him, competition is a family affair - his wife Tish is also a champion reiner and his 14-year-old son Luca has recently taken up the sport. Fappani is the #2 all-time NRHA rider in career winnings with approximately $5.5 million.

· Abby Lengel (Gainesville, TX) - Lengel has recently branched out on her own professionally after spending five years as an assistant on the ranch of fellow rider (now competitor) Casey Deary.

In 2017, he won the "NRHA Level 4 Open Futurity" and has won the "National Reining Breeders Level 4 Open Derby Classic." He was a member of the US Team at the World Equestrian Games in Kentucky, winning Team Gold and Individual Silver medals. He is also a gold medal winner in the World Reigning Masters.
