We’ve all been waiting for the first teaser/trailer for Tulsa King. It is here and doesn’t disappoint!
TULSA KING follows New York mafia capo Dwight “The General” Manfredi (Sylvester Stallone), just after he is released from prison after 25 years and unceremoniously exiled by his boss to set up shop in Tulsa, Okla. Realizing that his mob family may not have his best interests in mind, Dwight slowly builds a “crew” from a group of unlikely characters, to help him establish a new criminal empire in a place that to him might as well be another planet. The series also stars 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”) with Garrett Hedlund (“The United States vs. Billie Holiday”).
The series will be executive-produced by Sheridan, Winter, Stallone, David C. Glasser, Ron Burkle, Bob Yari, David Hutkin and Allen Coulter. Braden Aftergood is also set to executive-produce.

Recently, the Fan To Fan (F2F) team spoke with me about Sly Stallone. We had so much fun talking that the discussion was split into two parts. Part I is here and part 2 is below. Talking to Bernie, Pete and Doug was a blast. It was truly fans hanging out. I hope you enjoy it half as much as I did.
The Fan To Fan (F2F) podcast with hosts Bernie Gonzalez, Peter Charbonneau and Doug Ziegler takes a simple idea and does it well. Each episode of F2F features a conversation between fans. The subject could be movies, comics, TV, video games, toys, cartoons, or anything pop culture! Bernie, Peter and Doug pick a fan with a love and/or knowledge of the episode’s topic and then do a deep dive.
Recently, the F2F team spoke with me about Sly Stallone. When I was approached to be a guest, I explained that there are Stallone fans with greater knowledge and bigger collections than mine. Still, they were interested in how I became a Stallone fan, the creation of StalloneZone and more. I was already a fan of Bernie’s Midnight Mystery, so I checked out F2F and became a fan of it as well.
Talking to Bernie, Pete and Doug was a blast. It was truly fans hanging out. Here’s part one of the conversation. I hope you enjoy it half as much as I did.
Click on the poster above by Mike Lynaugh and admire the detail that he put in it. Mike captured Rocky’s story from Rocky through Creed. All of Rocky’s opponents are there including Spider Rico and Thunderlips. Butkus is shown. Rocky’s address and Mighty Mick’s gym appear.
Here’s a vintage photo of Harley Race, the NWA Wrestling Champion at the time, and Sly Stallone taken in 1978. I wonder if Sly was scouting wrestlers for Paradise Alley?
