Mob City (Dec. 4) /TNT
Setting: Los Angeles, 1946.
Think: L.A. Confidential meets more L.A. Confidential.
Plot: The city is caught between a powerful and corrupt police force and a criminal network trying to establish itself on the West Coast.
Historical titan: Mobsters Mickey Cohen and Bugsy Siegel rule L.A. with bloody fists.
Fashion: It’s stylish mobsters vs. schlubby cops — but even the schlubby cops dress fancier than your average modern executive.
Accuracy: A mob drama that mixes historical and fictional characters; based on the book L.A. Noir.
Problems of the Era: Police corruption, East Coast gangsters causing trouble.
