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
