“What made this city great was that it was run by bad men.” So begins the trailer for Showtime’s City On A Hill starring Kevin Bacon and Aldis Hodge.
Created and executive produced by Chuck MacLean (Boston Strangler), City On A Hill is set in early 1990s Boston, rife with violent criminals emboldened by local law enforcement agencies in which corruption and racism was the norm. In this fictional account, driving change is assistant district attorney Decourcy Ward (Hodge), who comes from Brooklyn and forms an unlikely alliance with a corrupt yet venerated FBI veteran, Jackie Rohr (Bacon). Together, they take on a family of armored car robbers from Charlestown in a case that grows to involve, and ultimately subvert, the entire criminal justice system of Boston.
Tom Fontana (Homicide: Life on the Street) serves as showrunner and also executive produces.
Jonathan Tucker, Mark O’Brien, Lauren E. Banks, Amanda Clayton, Jere Shea, Kevin Chapman and Jill Hennessy also star. Guest stars include Sarah Shahi, Kevin Dunn, Rory Culkin, Georgina Reilly, Gloria Reuben, James Remar, Dean Winters, Samantha Soule and Cathy Moriarty.
In addition to McLean and Fontana, City On A Hill is executive produced by Jennifer Todd (Jason Bourne, Memento), Ben Affleck, Matt Damon, Michael Cuesta (Homeland), Barry Levinson (Rain Man) and consulting producer James Mangold (Logan, Walk The Line). MacLean wrote the pilot and Cuesta directed it. Bacon and Jorge Zamacona serve as co-executive producers.
City on a Hill premieres Sunday, June 16 at 9 PM on Showtime.
