  • From The Walking Dead's Frank Darabont, the epic battle between a determined police chief and a dangerous mobster inflames 1940s Los Angeles in the anticipated television event MOB CITY.

    Starring an exceptional ensemble cast and based on the critically acclaimed book L.A. Noir: The Struggle for the Soul of America's Most Seductive City, by John Buntin, MOB CITY centers on Detective Joe Teague (Jon Bernthal), a former Marine who holds his cards close to his chest, who has been assigned to a new mob task force headed by Detective Hal Morrison (Jeffrey DeMunn). The task force is part of a crusade by Los Angeles Police Chief William Parker (Neal McDonough) to free the city of criminals like Ben "Bugsy" Siegel (Ed Burns) and Mickey Cohen (Jeremy Luke), the ruthless king of the Los Angeles underworld. Additionally, Parker 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. Telling the true story of the decades-long conflict between the LAPD and the ruthless criminal underworld led by onetime boxer Cohen, the fast-paced drama is set in Los Angeles in the 1940s - 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 establish a West Coast base in L.A

  • A new love. A new hometown. Peter Appleton is having the time of his life... by living someone else’s life. Directed by Frank Darabont (The Shawshank Redemption, The Green Mile), The Majestic is both a valentine to the movies and the story of one man’s discovery of his own integrity. 

    Jim Carrey plays Peter, a Hollywood screenwriter who stumbles into tiny Lawson, California, with his memory blanked out by an auto accident.  There, he’s mistaken by the citizenry to be a long-lost war hero...an identity that Peter also comes to believe while restoring the town’s shuttered movie palace and romancing the girl (Laurie Holden) he supposedly left behind. It’s the perfect life and, perhaps, the truth is about to surface.
