Mob City – Upcoming New Series

I’m a newsman, assigned to the crime beat in the City of Angels, and I’m here to tell you — there’s nothing “angelic” about it. This place is MOB CITY. Based on the real-life accounts of the cops and gangsters of the time, this is the seductive story of the violent crime underbelly of America’s most glamorous city and those who wanted to control it.

mobcity_prelaunch12Los Angeles in the 1940s is full of glamorous movie stars, powerful studio heads and returning war heroes. But it’s also the backdrop to a tug of war between a corrupt police force and a violent criminal network determined to make the city its West Coast home. Detective Joe Teague, an ex-Marine who plays his cards close his chest, gets caught in the middle of that war during his assignment to the new Organized Crime Division. It’s headed by Detective Hal Morrison, who becomes suspicious after learning Teague is asked to help blackmail a high-powered mobster. However, police Capt. William Parker sees the scheme as a perfect opportunity to bring down gangsters like Bugsy Siegel and Mickey Cohen, and he looks to Teague for key information in the LAPD’s crusade against organized crime.
