Set Your DVR: TNT’s Mob City
From zombies to mobsters…..
Make sure you get your DVR set, because starting tomorrow TNT is rolling out it’s newest series, Mob City. Written and Directed by Frank Darabont (Shawshank Redemption, The Walking Dead), Mob City is set in 1940’s Los Angeles and blends fact with fiction as it tells the story of the LAPD’s war on organized crime. With a highly stylized look and a great cast including Jon Bernthal (who most recently teamed up Darabont on the first few seasons of The Walking Dead), Ed Burns as Bugsy Siegel, and the always great Simon Pegg, Mob City has the makings of the next great cable show. With the entire six episode first season set to air with back to back episode over the next three weeks, I know I’ll be giving it a shot. Check out the official trailer below and let us know if you’ll be setting your DVR.
