Crude is described as follows: "When a catastrophic environmental accident threatens to derail Kurtz Petroleum, it's up to documentarian turned big oil public relations guru Jaime Kurtz with the help of his commercial making bro-buddy Aaron and Aaron's drug dealer Manny to come up with the perfect pitch to save the company, his relationship with his environmentally conscious wife Brittany, and his stolen dog."
Younger star Nico Tortorella leads the cast. Joining him and Davis in the company are Eliza Huberth and Jose Joaquin Perez. Crude will feature scenic design by Caite Hevner Kemp, costume design by Sydney Maresca, lighting design by Alex Jainchill, and sound design by Elishabe Ittoop.
