Showtime has premiered the full trailer for its early 1990s Boston-set crime period drama “City on a Hill ” starring Kevin Bacon, Aldis Hodge, Jill Hennessy, Jonathan Tucker, Kevin Dunn, Jere Shea and Amanda Clayton.
It was a town rife with violent criminals emboldened by local law enforcement agencies in which corruption and racism was the norm, until it all changed. This is a fictional account of the ‘Boston Miracle’ with Hodge playing an assistant D.A. driving that change after forming an unlikely alliance with a corrupt yet venerated FBI veteran (Bacon).
Chuck MacLean created the series based on an original idea by Ben Affleck who executive produces alongside Matt Damon, James Mangold and Jennifer Todd. MacLean wrote the pilot while Michael Cuesta helms. The series premieres June 17th.
