If you are like me and a fan of Westerns, especially spaghetti westerns, you’ll want to keep an eye out for this new series. That Dirty Black Bag, a new Western series for AMC+, will premiere on March 10th, with new episodes released weekly. The 8 part series features an ensemble cast, led by Dominic Cooper (Preacher) and Douglas Booth (The Dirt). Based on the trailer and what we know of the series, it looks like this should be quite the bloody ride.



From the looks of the trailer, the series appears to hit its goal as a reinvention of the classic spaghetti western. This is definitely not your classic John Wayne style western. We have outlaws, bounty hunters, heads in a bag, and a lot of guns and blood. But also shown are some hints of horror, including a pile of human bones. During the trailer, a mysterious eye symbol is shown a few times along with what could be an occult group of some kind. This group and eye symbol will likely play a factor in the series.

That Dirty Blak Bag is created by Italian filmmaker Mauro Aragoni who also helped co-write the series. Staying true to its spaghetti western inspiration, the series was filmed on location in Italy, Spain, and Morocco. Aragoni also helped co-write the series. The cast also includes Guido Caprino (The Miracle), Christian Cooke (The Promise), Aiden Gillen (Game of Thrones), Travis Flemmel (Vikings), Niv Sultan (Tehran), and Rose Williams (Reign).


That Dirty Black Bag 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.
