In our own conversation, Renner noticed more than once that going straight from “Hawkeye” (which was filmed in New York and Atlanta) to “Mayor of Kingstown” (which was filmed in Toronto and Kingston, Ont. ) had been exhausting, and that he might not have taken on the workload if he had not been able to bring his 8 year old daughter, Ava, at these locations. (Renner shares custody of Ava with his ex-wife, model and actress Sonni Pacheco, with whom he exchanged contentious legal documents over the years.)

In 2017, Renner starred in “River of the wind”, a thriller in the style of a modern day western. The film was written and directed by actor-turned-screenwriter Sheridan (“Sicario”, “Hell or High Water”), and during its production he and Renner bonded by common sensibilities. When Paramount hired Sheridan to produce more content for the studio’s streaming service, he asked Renner to star in “Mayor of Kingstown.” (Sheridan created this series with Hugh Dillon, one of his co-stars.)

“At the end of the day, I make high value action movies,” Sheridan said. “I do ‘Relay’ with a message. I need someone who has the physique and the intensity, but also the vulnerability.

Sheridan added, “My characters start to break and then heal, and there is an innate sadness he can give them.”

In “The Mayor of Kingstown,” Renner’s character, McLusky, works with his brother Mitch (Kyle Chandler) as an intermediary between prison workers, inmates and their families, giving him a unique breakthrough into the intertwined electrical systems of the city. “In order to truly defend them, you have to have relationships with the people who control them,” Sheridan explained. “You have to have relations with the thugs, with the judges, with the police.

Renner said he was drawn to the show for its commentary on the US criminal justice system and the for-profit incarceration industry. He said he also appreciates the opportunity to play a character like McLusky, who may appear to have some control over Kingstown but is at the mercy of forces greater than himself.
