Coming Soon reports that TNT has released a new preview and photos for their series Mob City, which comes from executive producers Frank Darabont (The Walking Dead, The Shawshank Redepemption), Michael De Luca (The Social Network, Moneyball) and Elliot Webb (Tall Time Tales). The series is based on the book L.A. Noir: The Struggle for the Soul of America's Most Seductive City by John Buntin.
Here's a synopsis: The story chronicles the epic battle between Los Angeles Police Chief William Parker and mobster Mickey Cohen. The series tells the true story of a decades-long conflict between the Los Angeles Police Department, under the determined leadership of Police Chief William Parker, and ruthless criminal elements led by Mickey Cohen (Jeremy Luke), a one-time boxer who rose to the top of L.A.'s criminal world. The series is a fast-paced crime drama set in Los Angeles during the 1940s and '50s. It's a world of glamorous movie stars, powerful studio heads, returning war heroes, a powerful and corrupt police force and an even more dangerous criminal network determined to make L.A. its West Coast base.
It stars Jon Bernthal (The Walking Dead) as Joe Teague, a former Marine working as an LAPD cop during a time with widespread police corruption. Jeffrey DeMunn (The Walking Dead, The Shawshank Redemption) plays Detective Hal Morrison, who is leading the LAPD's new mob squad. It also stars Jeremy Strong (The Happening, Lincoln) as Det. Mike Hendry (Morrison's second in command), Neal McDonough (Captain America, Desperate Housewives) as Capt. William Parker (Teague's boss who wants to bring down Mickey Cohen), and Milo Ventimiglia ("Heroes") as Ned Stax, who fought with Teague in World War II but is now a lawyer with connections to the mob. Rounding out the cast is Ron Rifkin (AliasL.A. Confidential) as Los Angeles Mayor Fletcher Bowron (who decides to clean up corruption in city government), Pihla Viitala (Tears of April) as Anya (the head bartender at Bunny's on Central Avenue) and Alexa Davalos (Clash of the Titans, The Mist) as Jasmine, " a beautiful woman whose past has come back to haunt her."
