The AMC+ Spaghetti Western-flavored series gets an encore airing on AMC.
If you missed That Dirty Black Bag during its eight-episode run last year on AMC+ — or if you couldn’t watch because you didn’t yet (or still don’t) subscribe to the streaming service, here’s your second chance: The violent Western drama is getting an encore presentation on the AMC basic cable channel.
The premiere episode (along with what’s billed as new behind-the-scenes content) airs at 11 pm ET Tuesday, with subsequent episodes scheduled in the same time slot on a weekly basis.
What’s it all about? According to the original press announcement, That Dirty Black Bag is “is a raw, epic and romantic series about the dark side of the Far West. The story describes the 8-day clash between Arthur McCoy, played by Dominic Cooper, an incorruptible sheriff with a troubled past, and Red Bill, played by Douglas Booth, an infamous, solitary bounty hunter known for decapitating his victims and stuffing their heads into a dirty black bag, because, as he puts it, “Heads weigh less than bodies.” The drama echoes and pays homage to the classic Spaghetti Western, capturing the genre’s legendary irony while revolutionizing it in a modern way for new audiences. The series tells of bounty hunters, bandits and bloody vendettas, lonely souls driven by such great passions as faith, love and revenge. In the world of That Dirty Black Bag, there are no heroes, nobody is invincible, and predators become the prey.”
Also featured in the cast: Paterson Joseph (The Leftovers), Rose Williams (Sanditon, Curfew), Anna Chancellor (The Split, Pennyworth, The Hour), Zoe Boyle (Downton Abbey, Four Weddings and a Funeral), Eugene Brave Rock (Wonder Woman 1984) and Ivan Shaw (Nocturne, Insecure).
