Kevin Costner Signs Big Deal with Fox

Kevin Costner is set to star in a new show on Fox Nation, debuting in the first quarter of 2025, according to a recent report.

Axios reported that the Fox Nation show “offers Costner and other Hollywood stars a platform for passion projects about topics like faith, outdoor living and true crime that are targeted to Americans in the middle of the country.”

Costner previously appeared on Fox Nation with “Yellowstone One Fifty,” a 2022 docuseries celebrating the 150th anniversary of Yellowstone National Park.

Axios also noted that Fox Nation has been expanding its content beyond just news and opinion.

Fox Nation was described as “Netflix for Conservatives” by the New York Times, according to Fox.

In May, Fox Nation announced a partnership with Martin Scorsese for an eight-part series about saints, featuring figures such as Joan of Arc, Francis of Assisi, John the Baptist, Thomas Becket, Mary Magdalene, Moses the Black, Sebastian, and Maximillian Kolbe.

Costner’s docuseries on Yellowstone’s history attracted “hundreds of thousands” of subscribers, according to Jason Klarman, Fox News Media's chief digital and marketing officer.

Fox Nation currently boasts approximately 2 million paid subscribers, Klarman said.

“The big categories that have really just popped are comedy, faith, true crime, and American history and exceptionalism,” Klarman said.

Costner is also working on a four-movie epic called “Horizon,” following his departure from the hit TV show “Yellowstone.”

“There’s real drama in how people crossed this country,” Costner said in an interview with Entertainment Weekly.

“There’s always this tendency to think it was a simpler time. It was infinitely more difficult. You were dealing with unknowns. You didn’t know where you were going. You had to arbitrate your own problems,” he explained.

“When you were confronted with issues, you had to make up your mind very quickly in very tough situations. Sometimes, life and death situations. Try that on a daily basis and see if you don’t want to live with your computer and s***,” he added.

“If you search for stories, you find incredible drama and realize that it’s not a land in Disneyland. It’s not Frontierland. It was real stakes. And it was a 200 or 300-year struggle to cross this country,” he noted.

Costner aims to tell the story of Manifest Destiny while also highlighting its darker aspects and those often excluded from the narrative.

He said he wants to reveal what is often overlooked.

He told Entertainment Weekly that women play a significant role in his film. “I want to highlight what their contributions were. Without women, the West dies. It never happens. This country doesn’t happen. They have a place in these stories,” he stated.

He emphasized that he will neither gloss over nor ignore the cultural collisions that marked westward expansion.

“You can’t talk about anything without understanding who was here before us. Our national appetite ran over culture after culture, with a high level of genocide. The people that were here for thousands of years were suddenly an inconvenience in their own land, and we should never forget that,” he said.
