  1. There’s quite a lot of movie pedigree invested in the making of this series and Paramount+ does need this show to succeed, Taylor Sheridan is becoming a Paramount+ savior writing and producing a number of successful made for TV Paramount+ productions that by chance also attract one or two Hollywood celebrity movie stars. After watching the trailer Special Ops: Lioness looks to have the creative edge over the recent Prime Video ‘spy’ thriller Citadel, so I will certainly be watching.
