AMC+’s That Dirty Black Bag is a stylish spaghetti western that follows two equally compelling protagonists, bounty hunter Red Bill (Douglas Booth) and Sheriff Arthur McCoy (Dominic Cooper), as they navigate the treacherous environment of the wild west. Red Bill’s signature accessory – which serves as the title of the show – is the bag he carries with him containing the severed heads of his bounties.
I had the chance to speak with Booth about growing up on westerns, making the show, and his upcoming projects with filmmakers like Michael Winterbottom and Terrence Malick.

In the debut season of THAT DIRTY BLACK BAG, in a town full of bounty hunters, bandits and bloody vendettas, Arthur McCoy is the incorruptible sheriff who’s trying to overcome his troubled past to bring law and order to this new frontier. On the other side of things is Red Bill, an infamous solitary bounty hunter known for decapitating his victims and stuffing their heads into a dirty black bag. When the paths of these two men collide, they both learn that in the wild west, there are no heroes, nobody is invincible, and the predators may become the prey.
The first season of That Dirty Black Bag will be available on DVD and Blu-ray on Tuesday, July 26th.
