Backyard Oil

Backyard Oil
Backyard Oil follows the fortunes of the most boot-strappin’ oil men in all of Appalachia – magnate Jimmy Reliford, and his howling sidekick Mad Dog; greasy ol’ polecat Coomer — who’s raking in a tidy $300K per month thanks to an oil strike in his own backyard; a bearded hillbilly named Rascal, who uses a set of brass rods to dowse for oil; and the Page Boys, a father-son team who can’t help but bicker about everything…except finding that sweet, sweet crude! Hellfire, boys. We’re gonna be richer than…aww come on, YOU know! Now that oil fetches close to $100 a barrel, there’s a modern day oil boom hittin’ these hills, and folks are a-clamorin’ to enlist the services of our heroes…at $25,000 a pop. These are the Newbies, a motley lot whose future rides on a jet of “black gold” spewing from that blowpipe. If they hit, it’s a gilded trot up Easy Street. If they don’t…well, shoot. Better luck next time! You ain’t a real oilman till you’ve lost money in this here game. Play your cards right, and you’ll laughing…all the way to the bank. Backyard Oil is a high stakes rollercoaster ride through the weird world of wildcat oil drilling in south central Kentucky - where warlocks, hickory sticks and high octane moonshine could be the keys to making millions - if you know where to sink that drill bit.
