Mob City Synopsis:
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 opens 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 (Neal McDonough — Captain America, Desperate Housewives) has made it his mission to free the city of criminals like Ben “Bugsy” Siegel (Ed Burns — Entourage) and Mickey Cohen (Jeremy Luke — Don Jon), 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. To carry out his sweep of organized crime, Parker sets up a new mob task force within the LAPD. Headed by Det. Hal Morrison (Jeffrey DeMunn — The Walking Dead, The Shawshank Redemption), the task force includes Det. Joe Teague (Jon Bernthal — The Walking Dead), an ex-Marine who holds his cards close to his chest. Mob City’s exceptional ensemble cast also includes Gregory Itzin (24), Robert Knepper (Prison Break), Milo Ventimiglia (Heroes) and Alexa Davalos (Clash of the Titans, The Mist).
