Mob City premieres TONIGHT!
12/4/2013 8:25:00 PM
I went to Los Angeles last month to get a sneak peek at TNT's new drama MOB CITY. It's awesome! It's set in 1940s L.A. (I adore the glamorous era of the 1940s!) and this show has the perfect "film noir" feel, which I absolutely loved. Much of that noir vibe is thanks to creator/director/producer Frank Darabont - yes, Walking Dead fans, that same director - whose story of mobsters versus cops balances the real and the fictional.
I had a chance to speak with a couple of the cast members, including Ed Burns who plays Bugsy Siegel [who was a real deal mobster back in the 1940s] and Robert Knepper who plays Sid Rothman. Listen to my chat with them, and check out the 2-hour premiere of Mob City tonight at 9pm on TNT! Mark your calendar for next Wednesday, when this 3-part event continues....
