Coyote Anticipation

Paramount Network has put in development Coyote, a scripted drama series starring and executive produced by Emmy-winner Michael Chiklis (The Shield).


Coyote, from Emmy-winning director/executive producer Michelle MacLaren (Game of Thrones, Breaking Bad) and Sony Pictures Television, follows Agent Ben Clemens (Chiklis) who, on the day of his mandatory retirement from the United States Border Patrol, discovers an illicit tunnel used to mainline black market goods into the United States from Mexico. This soon puts Clemens in the crosshairs of the criminal mastermind he’s spent his career trying to destroy.

“It’s a part tailor-made for him; it’s a really complex character,” Alterman said of Chiklis as Clemens. “He’s a border patrol agent, and he is forced into retirement, and then he gets sucked into all sides of that world, the drug cartels in Mexico, the human trafficking and the authorities on the U.S. side.

The deeper he goes into that world, he discovers more complicated, sometimes dark and nefarious characters. It’s almost like a Breaking Good in a way, because the more he gets sucked into those worlds, the more he gets in touch with his own humanity and keeps evolving as a better person."

Just seeing a picture at the end of a promo my first thought was that Vic Mackey had served his few years of house arrest on ICE basement duty and become a Border Patrol agent
