TNT’s ‘Mob City’ Trailer: “It’s Nothing But Corpses Since You Showed Up!”
After finally setting a December premiere date and undergoing yet another name change from ‘Lost Angels‘ to ‘Mob City,’ TNT’s new star-studded Frank Darabont-created period crime drama finally has a proper trailer. Featuring the likes of ‘The Walking Dead”s Jon Bernthal, Jeffrey DeMunn and even Simon Pegg himself, are you ready for our best look yet at TNT’s trip to ‘Mob City’?
Though a bit brief, the latest look into ‘Mob City’ eschews the stylistic crime-photo style to bring proper footage of the new series, featuring our first looks at such stars as former ‘Justified’ guest star Neal McDonough playing LAPD Chief Parker, Ed Burns as Bugsy Siegel, and ‘Walking Dead’ vet Jon Bernthal as Joe Teague, the LAPD cop at the center of the drama.
Written and directed by Frank Darabont, ‘Mob City’ revolves around the police force’s pursuit of mobster Mickey Cohen and takes its basis from John Buntin’s book ‘L.A. Noir: The Struggle For the Soul of America’s Most Seductive City,’ which recounts the story of decades-long conflicts between the LAPD and the city’s criminals. Rounding out the cast is ‘24‘ vet Louis Lombardi, ‘Prison Break”s Robert Knepper, Iddo Goldberg, ‘LOST‘ and ‘Mad Men‘ alum Patrick Fischler, ‘Anger Management‘ star Stephen Monroe, ‘Heroes’ alum Milo Ventimiglia, ‘Ghostbusters‘ star Ernie Hudson, Darabont collaborator Jeffrey DeMunn as detective Hal Morrison, and Alexa Davalos as Jasmine, a “beauty with a complicated past.”
TNT’s ‘Mob City’ will premiere on December 4, so take a look at the latest traielr above, and tell us if you’ll tune in for Frank Darabont’s gritty new series!
