In the early 1990s, Boston was rife with violent criminals emboldened by local law enforcement agencies in which corruption and racism was the norm – and then it all changed in what was called the “Boston Miracle.” In this fictional account, assistant district attorney Decourcy Ward comes from Brooklyn and forms an unlikely alliance with a corrupt yet venerated FBI veteran, Jackie Rhor. Together, they take on a family of armored car robbers in a case that grows to involve, and ultimately subvert, the entire criminal justice system of Boston.
PRINCIPAL CAST INFORMATION:
Aldis Hodge as Decourcy Ward
Amanda Clayton as Cathy Ryan
Cathy Moriarty as Ma Ryan
Jere Shea as Hank Signa
Jill Hennessy as Jenny Rhodes
Jonathan Tucker as Frankie Ryan
Kevin Bacon as Jackie Rhodes
Kevin Chapman as Dickie Minogue
Kevin Dunn as Nathan Rey
Lauren E. Banks as Siobhan Quays
Mark O'Brien as Jimmy Ryan
Michael O'Keefe as Agent Clasby
Rory Culkin as Clay Roach
Sarah Shahi as Rachel Behnam

Probably a little too early to post this, but Showtime just released the full trailer. Premieres this June. This thread will be bumped again this summer to remind everyone, but might as well get it on your radars now. Has a pretty good cast and creative team behind it.

Oh Gowd! The masshole in me cringes at the thought of the terrible Boston Accents we are about to be subjected to.

That was really good. Everyone had great parts. The dialogue was fantastic. So many recognizable faces. Been a fan of Aldis Hodge since Leverage, so glad to see him get a lead role.

Enjoyed it. Wasn't amazing or anything but I'm in. But being from the Boston area, I was in regardless.

First episode was fantastic other than the hideous Boston accents.

Anyone else watching this? We got through ep4 last night. Bacon is playing this role so well. Really no complaints so far.

Renewed for a 2nd season: https://deadline.com/2019/08/city-on...me-1202659622/

Looks like this show hasn't caught on here.

I did see the 1st episode and liked it, but I have so many other things to catch up on. I'll try to get caught up on this soon.

Good news! I'm hoping it's just due to not many people having Showtime because the show itself is fantastic and well worth the watch.

I'm waiting for it to be over and then I'll binge it.

Watching e6 now and really enjoying it. It's got a fairly complex plot and lots of characters, so it's up my alley.
