TNT Cancels Frank Darabont's Mob City
TNT has whacked Mob City.
Frank Darabont’s follow-up to The Walking Dead launched in November to huge buzz but disappointing ratings; roughly 2 million viewers caught the two-hour opener.
“Mob City was created as a three-week television event and we are incredibly proud of the six hours we presented of this remarkable drama,” a Turner rep said in a statement. “Although the ratings of the limited series haven’t warranted more hours we are eager to work with Frank Darabont again and were delighted to bring the vibrant world of Mob City to life.”
Set in 1940s Los Angeles, the three-week/six-hour series — which Darabont adapted from the acclaimed book L.A. Noir: The Struggle for the Soul of America’s Most Seductive City, starred 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).
