Review: Boston is one of the oldest cities in the U.S. and, like most cities, it is something less than a puritanical ideal. It birthed the idea of a revolution when locals had a tea party and passed the bill on to Great Britain to pay and practically got a patent on dockwork kickbacks after the embargo of 1807. In the past few years, the city has become almost synonymous with crime drama. Dennis Lehane made a near cottage industry out of tough tales about tough guys in Dorchester or Southie, such as Gone Baby Gone and Mystic River. Martin Scorsese’s The Departed showed how engrained someone like Whitey Bulger could get, and Ben Affleck’s The Town, pulled a heist in the middle of Fenway Park. Well Affleck and Mystic River’s Kevin Bacon want again to mine that lore while also reimaging a true crime saga for Showtime: City on a Hill. The cable network put in a 12-episode order for the series, which will premiere in 2019.
“City On A Hill has the veneer of a classic Boston cops-and-robbers drama, but actually dives head first into challenging the very institutions it depicts,” David Nevins, President and CEO of Showtime Networks Inc., said in a statement. “In reality, the series is a penetrating look at the larger criminal justice system and those who operate within it, with mesmerizing performances by Kevin Bacon and Aldis Hodge anchoring the suspense.”
In light of a thought started by Affleck, who will official create, and in addition kindred official maker Chuck MacLean, City on a Hill will come back to Beantown’s not all that heavenly days in the 1990s, when the city was being shaken by sorted out wrongdoing, defilement, and racial strains. In this unique situation, Boston experienced what local people called “the Boston Miracle,” which was a city cleanup of the network. In the arrangement, this supernatural occurrence will be reconsidered in an anecdotal telling with the landing of District Attorney Decourcy Ward. As a non-local from Brooklyn, Ward will go target debasement and wrongdoing in the entirety of its assortments, while endeavoring to select the assistance of a hesitant and degenerate FBI operator named Jackie Rhodes, a man portrayed as being “profoundly put resources into business as usual.”
The pilot will trace Ward and Rhodes investigating a family of armored car robbers out of Charlestown. And the criminal conspiracy this will lead to is going to rock the City on the Hill.
