ABC Picks Up North Dakota-Based Drama Starring Don Johnson
A new Bakken-based TV show, starring and produced by 'Miami Vice' and 'Nash Bridges' star Don Johnson, will soon be making its way into your home, after ABC recently gave it the greenlight.
According to InForum, the show currently does not have a title, though other cast members, including Chace Crawford and Rebecca Rittenhouse, have been announced.
Variety announced that Johnson would star in and produce the show back in March. Here's what they had to say about the show's plot:
The drama centers on the biggest oil discovery in American history, which has triggered a geopolitical shift and an economic boom in North Dakota — the greatest since the American Gold Rush in 1849. Set in a modern-day “Wild West,” the potential series tracks the pilgrimage of a young, ambitious couple, seeking a better life, to the oil fields of the Bakken, where they come across roughnecks, grifters, oil barons, criminals and fellow prospectors.
There is no word on when the show will debut on ABC.
