It's here! It changed its name again, but it's finally here! The first trailer for Frank Darabont's TNT crime drama 'Mob City' (formerly 'Lost Angels,' 'L.A. Noir') has finally arrived, and proven every bit as gritty and cool as we'd hoped. The cable network has begun billing 'Mob City' as an "event series" with a December 4 premiere though, so might this be our only stay in 'Mob City?'

It's been a good long while since 'The Walking Dead' showrunner Frank Darabont left the AMC drama and went on to plot period piece 'Lost Angels' at TNT, and longer still since we'd known when the drama would premiere. With the first six episodes largely in the can, the cast and crew recently met to discuss the future possibilities of the former 'L.A. Noir' series, and future name changes in store.

It's been a good long while since we've heard anything from TNT's Frank Darabont-helmed noir drama ‘Lost Angels‘ (formerly ‘L.A. Noir‘), so much so that we'd nearly forgotten the Upfronts passed without any mention of the series. Now set to film its first season in the coming summer months, the period piece has added 'Ghostbusters' star Ernie Hudson in a recurring role, but as whom?

It's been a good long while since we've heard anything from TNT's Frank Darabont-helmed '50's drama 'Lost Angels' (formerly 'L.A. Noir') but it seems like the drama may have a bit of thematic competition. New reports claim that New Regency will adapt James Ellroy's novel 'L.A. Confidential' (yes, it was a movie too) for a sequel series, but what network might it end up on?

Ever since Frank Darabont made his controversial exit from 'The Walking Dead,' we've been intrigued to see what TV projects the director would tackle next. We've long heard about Darabont's TNT follow-up, the ambitious period gangster drama 'L.A. Noir' featuring a host of stars alongside 'Walking Dead' alum Jon Bernthal and Jeffrey DeMunn, but we were surprised to learn after the pick-up the series might change its title. Well, it seems they've settled on 'Lost Angels' as the new moniker, but find out more about the controversy inside!

It was a curious oddity that we hadn't heard any news about TNT's upcoming mobster drama pilot 'L.A. Noir' amidst the flurry of renewals and pickups for the 2012 upfront season, what with all the incredible star power it boasts. Created by former 'The Walking Dead' show-runner Frank Darabont and starring the same series' Jon Bernthal, guess who's about to get 'Hung' up on 'L.A. Noir?'

'The Walking Dead's Jon Bernthal Makes 'Harry's Law' Pit Stop Before 'L.A. Noir'

Boy, you just can't keep that wily Jon Bernthal down.  You can stab him in the heart and shoot him through the head, but his career just keeps on comin'.  And where Bernthal left 'The Walking Dead' and signed to breathe new life into Frank Darabont's 'L.A. Noir,' first he's going to have to go to trial.

'L.A. Noir' Adds Another 'Angel' to its Ranks

Ordinarily, we'd be wary of the notion that a high-profile pilot continues adding notable and recognizable genre actors to its ranks, but since great art often comes out of the ashes of failure, Frank Darabont's 'L.A. Noir' is on track to be one of the more anticipated debuts of the year. And now the series has added another talent actor to its ranks.

Boy, that Simon Pegg has his hands in a lot of different cookie jars these days.  One day he's throwing  his voice to one of the most dangerous bounty hunters in the galaxy for 'Star Wars: The Clone Wars,' the next it's back to beaming up for 'Star Trek 2,' so where might the UK funnyman pop up next? Back in time?  Well, that's one frontier Pegg has never boldly gone before.
