Feb. 7 (UPI) -- Demi Moore has joined the cast of Landman.

Paramount+ announced in a press release Wednesday that Moore will star with Billy Bob Thornton in the new series from Yellowstone co-creator Taylor Sheridan.

Landman is created by Sheridan and Christian Wallace and produced by MTV Entertainment Studios, 101 Studios and Bosque Ranch Productions.

The show is based on the podcast Boomtown and tells "a modern-day tale of fortune seeking in the world of oil rigs" in the boomtowns of West Texas.

Landman is "an upstairs/downstairs story of roughnecks and wildcat billionaires fueling a boom so big, it's reshaping our climate, our economy and our geopolitics," an official synopsis reads.

Moore will play Cami, the wife of one of the most powerful oil men in Texas and friend of Tommy Norris (Thornton).

"Demi Moore is an iconic and extraordinary talent," Showtime/MTV Entertainment Studios president and CEO Chris McCarthy said. "We are thrilled to have her join Billy Bob Thornton and the star-studded cast of Landman, our next epic series from Taylor Sheridan."
