Series is a “That ’70s Show” reunion for him and Danny Masterson
Set in present day on a Colorado plot, “The Ranch” stars Kutcher as Colt, a failed semi-pro football player who returns home to run the family ranching business with his older brother Jameson “Rooster” (Masterson) and father Beau (Elliott), whom he hasn’t seen in 15 years. Debra Winger stars as Colt’s and Rooster’s mother, Maggie, who runs the local town bar.
At 34-years-old, Colt hasn’t quite given up his pigskin dreams, which leads to some contention between he and dad.
In the full preview, Colt comes home to a semi-chilly reception, though he and Rooster soon bond over booze and guns. Mom and dad seem to come around as well, as does an old flame — the ex-girlfriend is the one who points out that Colt is “still full of shit.”
Speaking of flames, at the end, a lightning bolt sets their barn ablaze — that will likely prove a metaphor for Colt’s comeback(s).
