TNT has announced that their new six episode drama series Mob City (formerly known as L.A. Noir and then Lost Angels) will premiere on Wednesday December 4th at 10pm.
Based on the book L.A. Noir: The Struggle for the Soul of America’s Most Seductive City by John Buntin, Mob City is set in the 1940s in post-war Los Angeles, home to glamorous movie stars, powerful studio heads and returning war heroes. But it’s also a city caught between a powerful and corrupt police force and an even more dangerous criminal network determined to make L.A. its West Coast base. Los Angeles Police Chief William Parker has made it his mission to free the city of criminals like Ben “Bugsy” Siegel and Mickey Cohen, the ruthless king of the Los Angeles underworld. Parker also won’t hesitate to go after anyone from his own police force who sells out honor and duty for the sake of a big payout.
