Watch: See Sylvester Stallone in the first trailer for Tulsa King
Sylvester Stallone has appeared in the first-look trailer for his TV series debut, Tulsa King.
The mafia-themed drama is set to land on new streaming service Paramount+ in November, with a newly released series teaser ramping up the anticipation for Stallone's foray into the world of TV.
Although the Rocky star has starred in TV shows before and presented challenge series, this is his first major starring role in a TV drama.

He plays New York mafia capo Dwight “The General” Manfredi, recently released from prison after a 25-year stretch.
But rather than being welcomed back with open arms by his mob boss, Dwight finds himself exiled to Tulsa, Oklahoma to apparently run operations from the new outpost.
He soon discovers that his mob family may not have his best interests in mind and that the life he "married" might not be as committed to him - with the trailer showing Dwight struggling to adjust to his newfound freedom, and his new home town.
Tulsa King follows his attempts to build a new criminal empire in a city that is completely alien to him, trying to find people he can trust to help him in his new venture.
It will also star Andrea Savage (I'm Sorry), Martin Starr (Silicon Valley), Max Casella (The Tender Bar), Domenick Lombardozzi (The Irishman), Vincent Piazza (Boardwalk Empire), Jay Will (The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel), A.C. Peterson (Superman & Lois) and Garrett Hedlund (The United States vs. Billie Holiday).
Paramount+ launches in the UK on Wednesday, 22 June and will feature shows including Halo, Star Trek: Strange New Worlds, and The First Lady.
It will include a number of star-studded series, with Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Uma Thurman appearing in Super Pumped: The Battle for Uber, Gillian Anderon, Viola Davis and Michelle Pfeiffer in The First Lady, and Chiwetel Ejiofor and Naomie Harris in The Man Who Fell to Earth.
Tulsa King will begin streaming on Paramount+ on Monday, 14 November.
