Three-time Oscar® nominee Frank Darabont (The Walking Dead, Shawshank Redemption) brings 1940s LA to life in the gritty gangster-drama Mob City.
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 is set 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.
Police chief William Parker has made it his purpose to bring down the city’s most notorious mobsters which include Mickey Cohen and Ben ‘Bugsy’ Siegel. Parker gets together a team to infiltrate the mob, fronted by detective Joe Teague (Bernthal), but with bent cops around every corner and a thin line between right and wrong no-one can be sure who to trust.
Starring: Jon Bernthal (The Walking Dead) Ed Burns (Saving Private Ryan), Neal McDonough (Justified), Jeremy Luke (Don Jon) and guest stars Simon Pegg (The World’s End).
Mob City will receive its UK premiere on FOX UK on Friday January 17th at 10pm
