Harrison Ford Doesn't Think Yellowstone Can Quite Be Considered 'Television'
The television series “1923” had the biggest debut in Paramount+ history. However, in an interview with The New York Times to promote the show ahead of the series premiere, star Harrison Ford shared a contrarian position on categorizing “1923” as television. He also insisted that, while “1923” is on a streaming service, it is veritably cinema.
Ford expressed to The New York Times that “1923” has a narrative scope that is too large to be classified as television. He asserted, “They keep calling it television. But it's so un-television. It is, you know, a huge vista. It's an incredibly ambitious story that he's telling in epic scale. The scale of the thing is enormous I think for the television.”
“1923” creator Taylor Sheridan sold Ford on joining the project with the idea that they would be making 10 one-hour movies. Ford added that while the production pace of TV differs from movies, it did not change his cinematic view of “1923”: “I'm here to sell a movie. I'm doing the same job. It's just being boxed and distributed in a different way.”
