CBS All Access will debut the new crime drama “One Dollar” on Aug. 30. Set in post-recession America, the show begins as a financial plot that eventually spirals into murder. The series stars John Carroll Lynch, Nathaniel Martello-White, Chris Denham, Philip Ettinger, and Gracie Lawrence, with “Hamilton” breakout star Leslie Odom Jr. in a recurring role.
