Kevin Costner Hosts Yellowstone National Park Docu-Series
Yellowstone National Park is turning 150 years old today. And, as part of the celebration, movie star Kevin Costner is hosting an upcoming docuseries highlighting the park’s history. The star says he was inspired to take part in this project after learning about the national park’s unique history.
“We take a lot for granted,” Kevin Costner says in a recent conversation with People.
“But because people risked a lot, we all have much richer lives,” the longtime actor continues. “Contributing my time towards the story seeing more light of day is just a tiny thing.”
This upcoming docuseries consists of four one-hour-long episodes. In each one of these episodes, Costner delves deeper into the area’s history.
“This was a time in America when all people cared about was what they could extract from the land. What they could get out of it,” Costner says in the show’s premiere episode.
“But these pioneers, they came up with an entirely new idea,” he relates. “A new way of finding value in the land. I wanted to see what they saw. I want to see what changed them.”
