For anyone not attending this weekend's New York Comic Con, here is the new trailer for TNT's upcoming crime-noir drama "Mob City," which is scheduled to be screened this Saturday at the convention. We also three in two other videos that slipped past us...
The 90-second preview offers a nice new peek at the "epic 3-week event" miniseries that was executive produced by Frank Darabont, and stars Jon Bernthal, Robert Knepper and Milo Ventimiglia as members of a 1940s police task force who've been assigned to save the city of Angels from crime, corruption and the mob. Neal McDonough also stars, playing the hard-nosed police chief who has made it his mission to stop the rising underworld kingpins: Ben "Bugsy" Siegel (Ed Burns) and Mickey Cohen (Jeremy Luke). Check it out, above.
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 opens 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. Los Angeles Police Chief William Parker (Neal McDonough) has made it his mission to free the city of criminals like Ben "Bugsy" Siegel (Ed Burns) and Mickey Cohen (Jeremy Luke), the ruthless king of the Los Angeles underworld. Parker also won't hesitate to go after anyone from his own police force who sells out honor and duty for the sake of a big payout. To carry out his sweep of organized crime, Parker sets up a new mob task force within the LAPD. Headed by Det. Hal Morrison (Jeffrey DeMunn), the task force includes Det. Joe Teague (Jon Bernthal), an ex-Marine who holds his cards close to his chest.
