Billy LefeverPlayed by Chace Crawford
Billy Lefever is a recently married man with big dreams. Following the largest oil discovery in American history, he and his wife, Cody, pack up and move from their small city to the boomtown of Rock Springs, North Dakota. After a rough start at getting settled in Rock Springs, Billy becomes eager to cash in on the new world that surrounds him. When he makes a go of trying his hand in the oil business, he crosses paths with the Briggs as they embark on expanding their empire into new territory. Tangling with titans is not for the faint of heart and when Billy bets big, it causes Cody to question his intentions, and ultimately their marriage. Is this their American dream or is this pure greed?
