    This series looks quite interesting, yet I’m worried it’s on TNT.

    Emmy contender, or a fluke?

    It all depends on the script. TNT had done a great job with “Franklin and Bash” and “Falling Skies” so I think it should be good.

    The Walking Dead went completely downhill after Darabont left. I’m looking forward to this.

    Since the thread starter didn’t post shit(sorry bout the tone) here goes some info:

    Created by Frank Darabont (TWD, The Green Mile/Shawshank Redemption), Mob City premieres December 4.

    The show is Noir theme based, it is set in post WWII Los Angeles and is about the conflicts of cops and mobs, guest stars includes Simon Pegg and Robert Knepper (Prison Break), the latter most likely to be regular, also casted, Jon Bernthal from TWD, Edward Burns (Saving Private Ryan) and Neal McDonough (Justified/Band of Brothers) who is probably the show’s lead as he plays the chief police officer William Parker engaged in several battles against Mob Mickey Cohen played by Jeremy Luke.

    The series is being promoted as an Event series with only Six Episodes following the Netflix’s format.

    Another thing to note — TNT’s airing the 6 episodes in a 3 week span.

    12/4 — episodes 1 & 2
    12/11 — epsiodes 3 & 4
    12/18 — episodes 5 & 6

    Milo Ventimiglia from Heroes and Jeffrey DeMunn from The Walking Dead also star.  Two-time Academy Award nominee Michael De Luca executive produces in his first foray into series television.

    This seems like CBS’s Vegas. And it has Bugsy Siegel in a supporting role the same way Boardwalk Empire has Al Capone.
    Will this compete as a miniseries? Could season 2 be commissioned if this event series turns out to be a success?

    Yes it will compete as a miniseries, on all the interviews and at comic-con Darabont seemed very excited to work with TNT and saying they’ve been placing high bets on the show so, if it succeeds, I think a second season is very likely to happen.

    I don’t like Darabont and I don’t think the cast is a big deal. We also have enough mobster shows as it is, and Boardwalk Empire fills the need very nicely as it is right now. Pass.

    Also, the pilot and the Sophia in the barn episodes were the only good moments in TWD first two seasons. So I don’t understand anyone saying the show went downhill after he left. It was never really good to begin with.

    Any new thoughts on the film? Does Ed Burns stand a chance in heck of getting a nomination as Bugsy Siegel?
