The new TV noir series Mob City looks great. Set in 1940s Los Angeles, it's darkly beautiful.
And it could turn out to be a pretty great show, given a bit of time.
Writer/producer/director Frank Darabont knows something about a show with a dark premise. He's the guy behind the first season of "The Walking Dead."
When AMC inexplicably relieved him of his duties on that show, Darabont moved on to this project, which is based on John Buntin's book "L.A. Noir: The Struggle for the Soul of America's Most Seductive City."
It should come as no surprise that this is a crime drama. A violent, dark crime drama, filled with violent, dark people and violent, dark plots.<
