Kevin Costner pops up as a cowboy farmer in Yellowstone, Wig tells the story of New York drag festival Wigstock, The Nolans Go Cruising does exactly as the title suggests - and Michelle Visage hosts a new chat show called How's Your Head, Hun?

Pick of the Day

Yellowstone, 9.30pm, RTÉ2

This is the feature-length pilot for a drama that’s been running for three seasons on US pay channel Paramount Network.

The cast includes Kevin Costner, Luke Grimes and Kelly Reilly, with Costner starring as John Dutton, a farmer whose family controls the largest contiguous ranch in the United States.

He tries to protect his Montana ranch from land developers, an Indian reservation and America's first national park.

It promises to be an intense study of a violent world far from media scrutiny, where land grabs earn developers billions, and politicians are bought and sold by the world's largest oil, natural gas, and lumber corporations.

Don't expect another Justified, that's all.

Wig, 9.00pm, Sky Documentaries

More HBO, this time a colourful film exploring the history and influence of Wigstock, the annual drag festival that showcases the personalities and talent that makes up the drag community.

Late one night in 1984, drag artist Lady Bunny and a few friends drunkenly wandered from the Pyramid Club in the East Village to Tompkins Square Park and staged an impromptu drag show.

This would soon become Wigstock, an annual drag bacchanal, which lasted until 2001. In 2018, Lady Bunny resurrected the festival, bringing together legendary queens with some of the new children of drag, creating one of the largest drag performances ever staged.
