The synopsis of the series is timely, with climate change pushing for alternatives to oil, but not everyone is for “renewable energy.” According to Variety, Land Man “is set in the proverbial boomtowns of West Texas.” It tells the modern-day story of fortune-seeking in the world of oil rigs. Based on the podcast Boomtown, the series is an “upstairs/downstairs story of roughnecks and wildcat billionaires fueling a boom so big, it’s reshaping our climate, our economy and our geopolitics.”
Billy Bob Thornton plays Tommy Norris, while Michelle Randolph plays Ainsley Norris, Tommy’s wild and strong-willed 17-year-old daughter. Meanwhile, Jacob Lofland plays Cooper Norris, Tommy’s son, who is “new to the demanding work in the oil and gas fields of west Texas. Moreover, Ali Larter plays the role of Tommy’s former wife, Angela.
