North Dakota just got a whole lot sexier. The upcoming ABC drama Blood and Oil will reveal the inner workings of one small oil town in North Dakota, and judging by the recently released teaser, there won’t be a dull moment to be had.
In the short clip, series stars Chace Crawford, Rebecca Rittenhouse, Don Johnson, and Amber Valletta talk about their roles on-screen, and all the “sex and greed and money” that saturates the show.
“It’s about a group of people all fighting for success,” Valletta says, adding that a big draw of the show will be for viewers to see “whether these people are going to win or fail.”
The trailer reveals awe-inspiring shots of the beautiful mountain scenery, a few impressive oil and fire-laden fights, and plenty of steamy love scenes.
“Sometimes you have to play dirty to get filthy rich,” a voiceover declares at one point.
Gossip Girl alum Crawford, 30, plays Billy LeFever, a young buck who moves to the town with wife Kelly (Rittenhouse) in pursuit of the American Dream. He meets Hap Briggs (Johnson), who takes Billy under his wing to teach him the ins and outs of the business.
Johnson, 65, who is perhaps best known for his starring role in hit ‘80s show Miami Vice, told The Hollywood Reporter in August that the series will showcase the best of all TV worlds.
“We are in a historically primetime soap slot, and you’re going to get the triangles and the twists and the turns and the soapiness,” he said during a TCA panel, “but along with that you’re also going to get these incredibly sophisticated well-told stories.”
Blood and Oil will premiere on Sunday, Sept. 27 at 9 p.m. EST on ABC.
