Intent on tapping into this explosion of wealth, they set out to start their own business, which they’ve financed with every penny to their name. After a rough start, Billy becomes increasingly eager to cash in on this modern day gold rush. When he tries his hand in the oil business, he crosses paths with the baron of the Bakken, Hap Briggs and his equally powerful wife, Carla, as they embark on expanding their empire into new territory. But tangling with titans is not for the faint of heart and when Billy bets big, it causes Cody to question his intentions, and ultimately their marriage

Show Summary: “Blood & Oil” is an epic story of the American dream as seen through the lens of a speculative mania, riding up the boom and eventual bust, and back up again.

Filled with family rivalries, pure ambition, and characters that represent the authentic diversity of a boomtown, the series tells its story against a visual landscape of astonishing natural beauty and a human landscape that is as complex and combustible as the oil they are chasing.
