With production underway in Toronto Tobi Bamtefa joins Mayor of Kingstown as a series regular.
Mayor of Kingstown follows the McLusky family, power brokers in Kingstown, Michigan, where the business of incarceration is the only thriving industry. Tackling themes of systemic racism, corruption, and inequality, the series provides a stark look at their attempt to bring order and justice to a town that has neither.
The series is co-created by Hugh Dillon, Taylor Sheridan, Antoine Fuqua, 101 Studios, and MTV Entertainment Studios. Dillon also joins as series cast regular. Pha’rez Lass (Claws, Five Points), Jeremy Renner, Diane Wiest, Emma Laird, Derek Webster, and Taylor Handley also star.
Executive producing Mayor of Kingstown are Sheridan, Dillon, Renner, Fuqua, David Glasser, Ron Burkle, Bob Yari, and Michael Friedman. MTV Entertainment Studios, Sheridan’s Bosque Ranch Productions, and 101 Studios will produce.
Bamtefa was most recently seen in The Girlfriend Experience, The Witcher and Tin Star. Bamtefa is repped by The Arts Partnership and Marcus Evans entertainment co.
