Money: it can change our lives for the better and equally make it worse. It’s respected (some say more than people) and can be feared. People will do desperate things to obtain it and also help others with it and throughout a day, a single dollar will pass through many hands and enter many lives.
In CBS All-Access’ One Dollar, a small rustbelt town in post-recession America, 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, paints 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.
At its core, One Dollar is about all of us; people who are just trying to make it through the next day by holding on to their way of life. Doing whatever it takes to achieve their everyday survival is what makes this show so enjoyable.
Created by Jason Mosberg, its standout ensemble cast helps to illustrate the ups and downs of life in America. Actor Joshua Bitton, is brilliant as Chewy, a dedicated cop with racist beliefs who hasn’t been exposed to perspectives outside his environment. Despite, his ignorance (that might change throughout the course of the season) he is loyal and dedicated.
