With the series set to premiere exclusively on Thursday, August 30th (with new episodes released weekly on Thursdays), CBS All Access is giving viewers the first official trailer for Craig Zobel's (Compliance, The Leftovers) mystery-drama One Dollar. Produced by CBS Television Studios in association with Anonymous Content, the first 10-episode season of One Dollar was directed by Zobel, who executive produces alongside Matt DeRoss, Alexandre Dauman, Graham Gordy, and Jason Mosberg.
You can check out the first official trailer for CBS All Access's One Dollar for yourselves below; while the clip does add layers to the overarching mystery (lots of blood, no body, seven different blood types, etc.), the series' creators continue playing their cards close when it comes to giving away too much plot-wise. One thing that is clear from the trailer below? That dollar's going to pass through a number of hands – and see a lot of blood – before it finds its "final resting place":
One Dollar is a mystery set in a small rust belt town in post-recession America, where a one-dollar bill changing hands connects a group of characters involved in a shocking multiple murder. The path of the dollar bill and point of view in each episode paint a picture of a modern American town with deep class and cultural divides that spill out into the open as the town's secrets get revealed.
CBS All Access's One Dollar stars John Carroll Lynch, Nathaniel Martello-White, Chris Denham, Philip Ettinger, Kirrilee Berger, Gracie Lawrence, Joshua Bitton, Nikẹ Uche Kadri, Hamilton Clancy, Greg Germann, Sturgill Simpson, Aleksa Palladino, Jeff Perry, and Leslie Odom Jr.
Available exclusively to subscribers of the streaming service; CBS All Access' One Dollar will premiere episodes beginning Thursday, August 30th.
In a 2012 interview with Dorkshelf, Zobel discussed what it was like sharing film classes with Jody Hill, Danny McBride, and Jeff Nichols now that they were all successfully making movies:
"(Laughs) It's a little bizarre, yeah. But great. I attribute that to the fact that there was never any sense of competition. We were all at a school that no one had heard of. There was a lot of camaraderie in the sense that no one knew what would happen after school, but we had to support each other. And also, Winston-Salem North Carolina isn't exactly a jumping metropolis. The only thing that we could do was watch movies. There was literally one bar in the town."
