Exclusive First Look: In TNT's Noir Drama Mob City, 'Nobody Gets Out Alive'

When it comes to the law in 1947 Los Angeles, things are far from black and white — as evidenced in the latest promo for TNT’s well-pedigreed noir drama Mob City.

VIDEO | Frank Darabont Takes a Gritty Look at ‘Gray Hats’ in TNT’s Mob City

Adapted by Frank Darabont (The Walking Dead) from the acclaimed book L.A. Noir: The Struggle for the Soul of America’s Most Seductive City, the three-week/six-hour series boasts a cast that included Jon Bernthal (The Walking Dead), Milo Ventimiglia (Heroes), Neal McDonough (Justified), Alexa Davalos (Reunion), Jeffrey DeMunn (The Walking Dead), Gregory Itzin (24), Robert Knepper (Prison Break), Jeremy Luke (Don Jon) and Ed Burns (playing Bugsy Siegel).

This first-look promo, opening in black-and-white but quickly exploding into color (including splashes of, gulp, blood red), surveys the “high rises and low lifes” of 1940s L.A., warning mobsters such as Siegel and Mickey Cohen that while they may think they own the town, the town in fact owns them.

    Wow looks good. I’ve been waiting and waiting for this one. I didn’t realize it was just a 3 week series though :-(

      So true. This looks too amazing to only last 3 weeks. Great cast and showrunner and I love the Film Noir style…make it a series….please.

  3. Andrea says:

    I will definitely be checking it out. Did I see a brief glimpse of Simon Pegg?

  4. Nelson says:

    Weird or what! The openning camera view moving through the streets and building, i dreamed that after watching the first trailer

  5. Bobbi says:

    Will definitely be watching and I love the three two hour showings. Will be like a movie each week.

  6. Kyle C. says:

    The previously titles of L.A. Noir and especially Lost Angels were better than “Mob City” but either way this looks good

  7. Dani says:

    Looks amazing!

  8. Maryann says:

    Looks great! Does anyone know of there will be more if this gets good ratings?

  9. Joey says:

    The new promo video looks great. I can’t wait to see the show next month.

    I already wanted to watch it when I heard it was by Frank Darabont… But now that I see Simon Pegg is in it, I’m definitely watching it!!
