Back in the 1980s, ABC and CBS had hit shows that revolved around the oil business — Dynasty and Dallas — and each ran for many seasons. Now, the alphabet network is hoping to strike it rich with a new show called Blood & Oil. Will this series be a hit or a flop? Cancelled or renewed for a second season? Stay tuned.
On Blood & Oil, young couple Billy (Chace Crawford) and Cody LeFever (Rebecca Rittenhouse) move to Williston, North Dakota to seek their fortune. Billy’s drive attracts the attention of oil barron Hap Briggs (Don Johnson) and Hap takes him under his wing, much to the dismay of Hap’s son Wick (Scott Michael Foster). The rest of the cast includes Amber Valletta, Adan Canto, India de Beaufort, Miranda Rae Mayo, and Delroy Lindo.
