Binge-hungry Public Morals fans will have plenty to munch on this Labor Day weekend. TNT is making available the entire first season on-demand for subscribers beginning at noon Saturday through Monday evening. All 10 episodes of Ed Burns’ 1960s-set police drama will be available via TNT On Demand, tntdrama.com and the Watch TNT mobile app, as well as on participating TV providers’ platforms and apps.
Turner Broadcasting System announced last month that it would release the first four episodes of Public Morals simultaneously on-demand following the series premiere on August 25. Two episodes have aired on linear TV so far. Those four episodes will continue to be available through TNT’s on-demand platforms after Labor Day, and will be joined by subsequent episodes in the coming weeks. The decision comes after some strong early VOD numbers for the show.
Burns created, produces, directs and stars as cop Terry Muldoon in the period cop drama. The series takes viewers to the seedy, gritty streets and the bright, seductive lights of 1960s New York, where the laws on the books seek to curb all kinds of sin and vice. Gambling and prostitution are as old as the city itself, so the cops in the Public Morals Division do what’s been done for the last hundred years: they manage it for the city. But for Muldoon (Burns), this all might come to an end when a war between two factions of the Irish mob breaks out in his own Hell’s Kitchen neighborhood, prompting his wife to demand that they leave the city for good. Michael Rapaport and Elizabeth Masucci also star.
Public Morals is produced in collaboration with Steven Spielberg’s Amblin TV. Spielberg, Justin Falvey, Darryl Frank and Aaron Lubin serve as executive producers.
