A teaser trailer has dropped for new tv series, 1883, giving fans their first glimpse of powerhouse country music couple, Tim McGraw and Faith Hill.
1883 is the prequel to the Emmy-nominated show Yellowstone, starring Kevin Costner. It follows the Dutton family as they embark on a journey west through the Great Plains toward the last bastion of untamed America. It is a stark retelling of Western expansion, and an intense study of one family fleeing poverty to seek a better future in America’s promised land — Montana.
A female voice says in the trailer, “I heard 1,000 stories, but none could describe this place. The road west is filled with failures. It was a dream. And the dream is coming true. We are in the land of no mercy now.”
It was reported back in August that McGraw and Hill would star as James and Margaret Dutton, the patriarch and matriarch of the Dutton family, respectively.

McGraw said, “This is truly a dream job. Taylor has found a way of storytelling that brilliantly creates these epic dramas and family sagas with so much depth and creativity. The Duttons are tremendous characters and it’s so thrilling to be able to bring them to life. As a kid growing up riding horses, you think about dream jobs like this, and I am just so excited to work with this amazing cast and crew.”
Hill added, “This is the opportunity of a lifetime. The Duttons are a formidable family, and it is an absolute dream to bring such a strong female character like Margaret Dutton to life. I am humbled and honoured to work with Taylor and his entire team.”
1883 also stars Academy Award nominee, Sam Elliot and newcomer, Isabel May.
