Kevin Costner Will Explore 150 Years of Yellowstone In New Series
Kevin Costner is now hosting more than one Yellowstone TV show.
“Yellowstone One-Fifty,” is a four-part series that will be told from the historical perspective of the 1871 expedition led by geologist Ferdinand V. Hayden.
Hayden's group included a topographer, meteorologist, zoologist, botanist, photographer, and artist.
The work they did gave the world the first photographs, paintings, and scientific reports of an area that some people thought was too fantastic to believe when stories of the region first came out.
One year later President Ulysses S. Grant signed the Yellowstone National Park Protection Act.
It has been 150 years since that act was signed into law.
Costner noted that the first white explorers to the Yellowstone area wanted to know what they could take from the land.
Today, people are more concerned with how to preserve it.
The producer originally pitched to a different network. They declined. Fox Nation thought it was a great idea.
These episodes were recorded with Costner in the spring of 2022.
Then came the flood that shut down much of the park for the entire summer.
Still, Costner and the crew worked long days. Sometimes up to 18 hours in a single day before getting a little sleep, then doing it again.
