LOS ANGELES -- Helen Mirren and Harrison Ford will bring their combined star power to the newest addition to the 'œYellowstone' TV franchise.

The pair will headline a Paramount+ series with the working title 'œ1932,' which joins 'œ1883' as part of what the streaming service called the 'œorigin story' of its 'œYellowstone' drama series.

 

Mirren and Ford are among the growing ranks of film actors who have added small-screen projects to their resume as streaming services vie for subscribers with prestige projects and big names.

The latest chapter in the Dutton family saga will be set in an early 20th century and a Mountain West beset by drought and the Great Depression, among other ills, Paramount+ said. It will debut in December.

Writer-producer Taylor Sheridan is the creative force behind the hit franchise, which began with the contemporary drama 'œYellowstone," led by Kevin Costner. The 'œ1883' prequel stars Faith Hill and Tim McGraw.

Mirren is among today's most highly regarded actors, a four-time Oscar nominee who won for her portrayal of Britain's Queen Elizabeth II in 2006's 'œThe Queen.'

Ford's extensive blockbuster movie credits include the 'œStar Wars' and 'œRaiders of the Lost Ark' franchises. He was an Oscar nominee for the 1985 film 'œWitness.'
