TNT‘s upcoming Mob City (Dec. 4) has released new key art, and basically the show is laying its cards on the table… do with that what you will. It’s a show that builds in as much audience as it might hope for just by putting Frank Darabont on display, and it even throws in some actors from The Walking Dead for good measure.
Of course, it also has the mob, Ed Burns, and takes place in the ’40s (period is popular).
But, just in case that isn’t enough… well, it has this poster.
Mob City Trailer
The epic battle between a determined police chief and a dangerous mobster inflames 1940s Los Angeles in TNT‘s eagerly anticipated television event Mob City. This powerful drama comes to TNT from Frank Darabont (The Walking Dead), who wrote and directed the pilot and serves as executive producer on the series.
Mob City stars an exceptional ensemble cast that includes Jon Bernthal (The Walking Dead), Jeffrey DeMunn (The Walking Dead, The Shawshank Redemption), Neal McDonough (Captain America, Desperate Housewives), Ed Burns (Entourage), Gregory Itzin (24), Robert Knepper (Prison Break), Milo Ventimiglia (Heroes), Alexa Davalos (Clash of the Titans, The Mist) and Jeremy Luke (Don Jon).
Based on the critically acclaimed book L.A. Noir: The Struggle for the Soul of America’s Most Seductive City, by John Buntin, Mob City centers on Det. Joe Teague (Jon Bernthal), an ex-Marine who holds his cards close to his chest. Teague has been assigned to a new mob task force headed by Det. Hal Morrison (Jeffrey DeMunn). The task force is part of a crusade by Los Angeles Police Chief William Parker (Neal McDonough) to free the city of criminals like Ben “Bugsy” Siegel (Ed Burns) and Mickey Cohen (Jeremy Luke), the ruthless king of the Los Angeles underworld.
Parker also won’t hesitate to go after anyone from his own police force who sells out honor and duty for the sake of a big payout. Mob City is produced by TNT Originals. Also serving as executive producers on the series are Michael De Luca (The Social Network) and Elliot Webb (Alpha House). Alissa Phillips and Dana Renee Ashmore serve as co-executive producers, with Paul Bernard serving as producer.
