CBS All Access has set the cast for its upcoming mystery series $1, with John Carroll Lynch, Nathaniel Martello-White, Philip Ettinger, Chris Denham, Kirrilee Berger and Gracie Lawrence with Leslie Odom Jr., Jeff Perry and Sturgill Simpson all set to star.
The show is described as 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.
$1 joins Star Trek: Discovery and The Good Fight, along with the streaming network’s first comedy series, No Access, on CBS All Access. The network has also greenlighted a new version of Twilight Zone from Jordan Peele as well as dramas Strange Angel and Tell Me a Story.
Production on $1 begins this month.
