Yellowstone fans, listen up – we’ve broken down all of creator Taylor Sheridan’s movies and TV shows, as well as where to watch them.

Sheridan is arguably one of the most powerful figures in television. His hands are on the reins of everything in his small-screen Yellowstone ranch, whether it’s the flagship show – which is due to reach its early end – or the growing library of spinoffs.

However, he’s not a one-trick pony. Neo-Western storytelling may be his hay and water, but his writing and directing credits aren’t limited to the banner of his TV franchise.

We’ve excluded his acting credits, as they’re mostly bit roles with the exception of David Hale in Sons of Anarchy and Travis Wheatley in Yellowstone.

Vile (2011)

Vile is technically Taylor Sheridan’s directorial debut – despite him not considering it so – and unlike the rest of his oeuvre, it’s an extraordinarily brutal, torture-porn horror movie. It follows a group of people who are kidnapped and most inflict torturous pain on each other in order to escape.

He told Rotten Tomatoes in 2017: “I would say [Wind River] is my feature debut. A friend of mine raised — I don’t know what he raised — $20,000 or something, and cast his buddies, and wrote this bad horror movie, that I told him not to direct.

“He was going to direct it and produce it, and he started and freaked out, and called and said, ‘Can you help me?’ I said, ‘Yeah, I’ll try.’ I kind of kept the ship pointed straight, and they went off and edited, and did what they did.

“I think it’s generous to call me the director. I think he was trying to say thank you, in some way. It was an excellent opportunity to point a camera and learn some lessons that actually benefited me on Wind River.”

Taylor Sheridan was tapped by Paramount to rewrite Without Remorse, Michael B. Jordan’s debut as John Clark in the Tom Clancy cinematic universe.

In an interview with CinemaBlend, director Stefano Sollima explained how Sheridan’s contributions impacted the movie. “I mean, it changed a lot because when I came on board, we had a script that was written by Shawn Ryan. Do you remember, the creator of The Shield, and it was written in the early ’90s,” he said.

“So, I mean, of course I pitched my vision that was pretty radical because I wanted to modernize the story. And, of course, it wasn’t easy. And then I already worked with Taylor Sheridan and I knew that he was the perfect writer because we share… we have a lot of we have a common taste in how to pay attention to the psychological evolution of a character and to be really accurate in the geopolitical description. So we changed it a lot, and our story it’s different from the book.”
