‘The Last Cowboy’ is an unscripted television series that airs on Paramount Network. The series has been envisioned and created by Taylor Sheridan, who is the writer of films like ‘Hell or High Water’ and ‘Sicario’. He is also the writer and director of ‘Wind River’, a 2017 neo-Western murder mystery film.

What is The Last Cowboy About?
‘The Last Cowboy’ is an unscripted series wherein each episode chronicles a professional reining rider and shows in detail how the riders train both themselves and their horses before they all together compete in an arena-based competition called “The Run For A Million”.
‘The Last Cowboy’ “chronicles the lives of eight men and women who compete on the regular reining circuit, a western-based competition where riders guide horses through a precise pattern of circles, spins, and stops. These horsemen are determined to elevate and preserve the cowboy tradition as they train and engage in the exclusive ultra-competitive sport.”
