Advertisements City on a Hill, a new series on Showtime, premiered Sunday June 16 2019. From the wiki: Set in Boston in the early 90s when the city was rife with violent criminals emboldened by local law enforcement agencies, in which corruption, tribalism and "taking it to the street" was the norm, until it all suddenly changed. This is a fictional account of what was called the "Boston Miracle". The change agent is District Attorney Decourcy Ward (Aldis Hodge), who comes from Brooklyn and forms an unlikely alliance with Jackie Rohr (Kevin Bacon), a corrupt yet venerated FBI veteran who is deeply invested in maintaining the status quo. Together they take on a family of armored car robbers from Charlestown (Jonathan Tucker, Mark O'Brien and James Michael Cummings) in a case that grows to encompass and eventually upend Boston’s citywide criminal justice system. The first episode was pretty good. Kevin Bacon's character is a little over-the-top, but the rest of the cast, and the story, is interesting. I have no idea if this is a mini-series or an (hopes to be) ongoing series. Matt Damon & Ben Affleck are part of the team behind this series.
