‘Ride’: Showrunner Sherri Cooper-Landsman On Hallmark Drama’s Similarities To ‘Yellowstone’ And Her Future With The Rodeo Series
The show is set on a picturesque but financially strapped ranch run by a widowed parent who loses a cherished family member in the pilot episode, and everyone looks downright hot in Wranglers and cowboy boots.
But according to Sherri Cooper-Landsman (Brothers and Sisters, Everwood), who showruns the new drama about a rodeo dynasty with Rebecca Boss and Chris Masi, t
that's where the similarities to Yellowstone end for Hallmark's Ride (Our Kind of People).
According to Cooper-Landsman of Ride, "For me, it was just this beautiful ranch setting with a family going through stuff that a family goes through."
To be completely honest, I hadn't even watched Yellowstone, so I didn't even consider that. It was just this lovely setting in a world that Rebecca [Becky] really knew well.
The Canadian television drama Ride, which was co-produced by Endeavor-backed Blink49 Studios and Seven24 Films in association with Bell Media,
stars Nancy Travis as Isabel Murray, the matriarch, and Beau Mirchoff (Good Trouble), Jake Foy (Designated Survivor),
Marcus Rosner (Arrow) as her sons Cash, Tuff, and Austin. Missy, Austin's wife, is portrayed by Tiera Skovbye.
