Showtime has handed out a twelve-episode order for the drama series “City on a Hill” starring Kevin Bacon and Aldis Hodge. The series will premiere in 2019.
Chuck MacLean (“Boston Strangler”) created the series based on an original idea by Academy Award winner Ben Affleck. Set in early 1990s Boston when corruption was the norm.
This fictional account follows assistant district attorney Decourcy Ward (Hodge) forming an unlikely alliance with a corrupt yet venerated FBI veteran (Bacon) to take on a family of armored car robbers from Charlestown in a case that grows to involve the entire criminal justice system of Boston.
Jonathan Tucker, Mark O’Brien, Jill Hennessy, Lauren E. Banks, Amanda Clayton, Kevin Chapman, Jere Shea and Kevin Dunn co-star while Affleck, Matt Damon, James Mangold and Jennifer Todd executive produce.
