The trailer for Jeremy Renner’s highly anticipated show "Mayor of Kingstown" by Paramount+ is out and in a short span of time has managed to garner a positive response from the audience. The show stars two-time Oscar nominee Jeremy Renner, Kyle Chandler, Dianne Wiest, Aidan Gillen, and Hugh Dillion. 

Popular as Clint Barton or Hawkeye, Jeremy Renner is going to play Mike McLusky  who is the mayor of a fictional town of Kingstown in Michigan, where incarceration is the only thriving industry. Helmed by Taylor Sheridan, "Mayor of Kingstown" will follow the McLusky family, who are known as the 'power brokers' of the fictional small town. The creators have mentioned that the show is going to tackle themes like systemic racism, corruption, and inequality while providing a look at their attempt to bring order and justice to a town that has neither.

The trailer starts with a line, "Every member of my family fights this fight". Mayor of Kingstown is co-created by Taylor Sheridan and Hugh Dillion and produced by MTV Entertainment Studios and 101 Studios. Sheridan, Dillon, Renner, Antoine Fuqua, David C. Glasser, Ron Burkle, Bob Yari, and Michael Friedman serve as executive producers.

The logline continues, "While tackling themes of systemic racism, corruption, and inequality, the series provides a stark look at their attempt to bring order and justice to a town that has neither." The power brokers, McLusky is accused of having always wanted to leave the town, but that he does not plan on leaving it any time soon. The trailer ends with Mike McLusky saying that the town is not torn to pieces yet, "Not even close," but that "it's coming."

"Mayor of Kingstown", premiering on November 14th, 2021, and "Yellowstone" prequel, 1883, premiering on December 19th, 2021, are the first projects stemming from Taylor Sheridan’s multi-year deal with MTV Entertainment and ViacomCBS, which includes scripted and procedural series for streaming and linear.

When Jeremy Renner, known popularly as Hawkeye, was asked about his role, the actor mentioned that he was looking forward to taking on the "complex and rough-around-the-edges character of Mike McLusky’. He added, "In a world otherwise forgotten in society, Mike serves as a flawed system of checks and balances. Taylor has brought to life a layered and poignant universe that is not only incredibly intriguing but also more relevant than ever. "

Actor Kyle Chandler will play Mitch McLusky, Mike's older brother played by Jeremy Renner. Mitch is a fixer both inside and outside the jail system in the show. In a place where the jails are the city's main economic engine. For his role as Coach Eric Taylor in Friday Night Lights, Kyle earned an Emmy Award for Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama Series. Nominations for his roles on Bloodline and Grey's Anatomy round out his five Emmy nominations.

In addition, Jeremy Renner released a new trailer for his upcoming Marvel and Disney+ series 'Hawkeye.' The teaser features Hailee Steinfeld as Kate Bishop, as well as what appears to be some classic Hawkeye moments, such as the Tracksuit Mafia and Clint Barton's (Jeremy Renner) bundle of "trick arrows."

Clint's struggle to manage his life with family and villains is also depicted in the latest 'Hawkeye's' new  teaser. All Clint wants to do for Christmas is to spend it with his family in New York, but clearly anybody who has ever watched a holiday movie knows that Christmastime in the Big Apple is never easy, no matter which way you swing it.

This new Hawkeye clip also provides us a look at Kate Bishop's working relationship with Barton, who doesn't seem to comprehend her twenty-something attitude or fixation with him, which is understandable given his past as a vigilante during The Snap.

The teaser, set to Andy Williams' "It's the Most Wonderful Time of the Year," also indicates that, rather than a single-episode premiere, the first two episodes of Hawkeye will be available to stream when the series begins on November 24. Hawkeye will premiere exclusively on Disney+ on November 24 and stars Vera Farmiga, Fra Fee, and Florence Pugh.
