Blood & Oil is a new American prime time TV soap opera that follows and young couple as they make their life in Rock Springs, North Dakota after the biggest American oil discovery. Created by Josh Pate and Rodes Fishburne the series premiered on ABC on September 27, 2015.
Filmed in North Utah, Blood & Oil features a stellar cast headed by Don Jonson as oil tycoon Hap Briggs and former super-model Amber Valletta as his catty socialite wife Clara. With a focus on a geopolitical shift and economic boom following the discovery of oil deposits in North Dakota, the series chronicles the life of a family who moved to Rock Springs in search of a more prosperous future. After years of putting the project on hold, Blood & Oil was finally scheduled to be released in 2015. Yet, since it’s season 1 premiere, the show has received mixed and mostly average reviews from critics and audiences. With just 61% approval ratings on Rotten Tomatoes and an average score of 5.9 out of 10 from critics, the show’s future is still very much uncertain.
ABC initially commission the series for a 13 episode run, but after seven episodes, and a drastic reduction in TV ratings — by nearly half since the series premiere. On October 23, 2015 the network reduced the number of total episodes to 10, with the season finale slated to air sometime in November. Given the serious decline in ratings, it is unlikely the ABC will renew Blood & Oil for season 2.
