‘Yellowstone’ Brings Lights, Camera, Action to Town – NBC 5 Dallas-Fort Worth
One of the most watched cable TV shows of 2020 is the drama “Yellowstone”. The story of a ranching family is set by Kevin Costner and has a connection to Texas.
It was designed and produced by a man from North Texas. He and his team were in the area recently to film some scenes. For the participating locals, it was without a doubt something good.
“I couldn’t believe it was actually happening,” said Mary Anderson, owner of Marys Brazos Cafe in Parker County.
Anderson has owned the Tin Top restaurant for 29 years. Despite being part of the media coverage, nothing was as big as it was two weeks ago and the city was full of life.
“The street across the street was busy with my customers watching and trying to see what was going on. It was great,” said Anderson of the day Yellowstone came into town.
“We made cheeseburgers, catfish, fried chicken steaks and a lot of catfish. We had to keep cooking because they had to repeat and repeat and repeat and one of the cowboys said,” I don’t know if I can eat more. “Said Anderson.
“I chose Mary’s because we have breakfast there when I’m here,” said Taylor Sheridan, a Texan native, ISD graduate from Fort Worth, ranch owner in Bosque County, Mary’s client and creator of the Yellowstone smash show.
“I spent a lot of time at horse shows and rodeo and so on, so I grew up a bit with Will Rogers and of course the Stockyards; everyone went there. I only discovered Marys a few years ago, at least Marys down here the Brazos and safe as you and your place, “said Sheridan.
“And he came up. I asked, where is the man who writes this stuff? ‘He pulled down his mask and I said,” Uh! I take your money all the time, “and he said,” That’s me, “said Anderson.
Speaking to NBC 5, Sheridan wouldn’t reveal any details about the scene being filmed at Mary’s, but the name of the restaurant remains. However, t-shirts worn by servers say padacuh is not tin top. Paducah is in the panhandle.
“Yellowstone,” the drama about a ranching family, will feature scenes filmed in North Texas for the upcoming season.
“I couldn’t believe they put Mary’s Brazos Cafe on their shirts. I’m not in Padacuh, of course. Everyone will be looking for me in Padacuh,” said Anderson.
When asked if he could talk about it, Sheridan’s answer? “No. I sure can’t,” he said. “We shot some scenes. I can’t really tell you what we shot because it’ll spoil the next season, and I don’t want that, but yeah, we shot at Weatherford and the Stockyards. We shot at Will.” Rogers. “
The next day’s shoot at the John Justin Arena in the Will Rogers Memorial Complex in Fort Worth presented challenges. The Open Hackamore Finals at the National Reined Cow Horse Association’s (NRCHA) Snaffle Bit Futurity featured real cowboys and cowgirls battling for a paycheck.
“One of my set people put a banner on the cattle gate which was very negative for some of the horses who had a real dilemma. We had to try to find out because I’m there to do a job, but they are also the.” People showing right? That is their job. If something we do is negatively affecting your performance and the performance of your horse, then this is a situation that we need to fix, “said Sheridan.” We all got together and said, how can we fix this? And there really wasn’t a solution that made any competitive sense, and I finally decided the only thing to do was pay everyone first place. “
It added up to 19 checks at $ 13,000 apiece, making a total of nearly a quarter of a million dollars. A small price to pay for the chance to showcase yourself in your home.
“It’s a lot of fun and a lot of responsibility. You really want to showcase this space, and I’m as proud as anyone from Fort Worth,” said Sheridan. “Yellowstone is a one-of-a-kind show. It’s a western show, but it’s also about the cowboy lifestyle and ranching that way of life, and you really can’t fully explore that unless you get to the place where the cowboy was invented , and that’s Texas. “
Yellowstone will air on the Paramount Network, and season four of the Texas scenes will begin in June 2021. If you don’t get into that, it’s Peacock, the company’s streaming service that owns NBC5. The third season begins on November 22nd.
