Mini-Series Script: Kilgore Crude, by Scott Simpson

Title of Story: Kilgore Crude

Written by: Scott Simpson

Logline: Actual historical figures become legendary Texas Oilmen during this telling of the first year of the East Texas Oil Boom (1930) during the first year of the Depression. The field was so large (bigger than the next ten largest American oil fields combined) that no single entity could contain it or control the dropping price of oil that such a glut surplus caused. This true story of Deadwood Meets Dallas is the tale of America’s last great oil boom and boom town, before the Texas Rangers, the Texas National Guard and finally the Department of the Interior and the Supreme Court restored order and saved the country’s national oil industry from complete collapse.
