The series centers around a bucolic but cash-strapped ranch run by a widowed parent who loses a loved one in the premiere episode - all while looking straight-up sexy in their Wranglers.
Hallmark's Ride has more in common with Yellowstone than it does with Yellowstone, says Sherri Cooper-Landsman (Brothers and Sisters, Everwood), who is executive producing alongside Rebecca Boss and Chris Masi (Our Kind of People).
Cooper-Landsman tells Deadline of Ride, "For me, it was just this beautiful ranch setting with a family going through things that any family goes through."
"I had not even seen Yellowstone, so I did not even consider it." And it was a world that Becky [Rebecca] was familiar with."
A coproduction of Ride by Endeavor-backed Blink49 Studios and Seven24 Films for the Canadian CTV Drama Channel, Ride stars Nancy Travis as Isabel Murray, Beau Mirchoff (Good Trouble)
Jake Foy (Designated Survivor) and Marcus Rosner (Arrow) as her sons Cash, Tuff, and Austin. As Austin's wife, Missy, Tiera Skovbye plays the role.
Cooper-Landsman explains what fans can expect from the Calgary-based series' premiere episode.
