"In reality, the series is a penetrating look at the larger criminal justice system and those who operate within it, with mesmerizing performances by Kevin Bacon and Aldis Hodge anchoring the suspense".

Showtime apparently liked the pilot for "City on a Hill" because the network has ordered up 12 episodes of the drama, which is a fictional account of the so-called "Boston Miracle", when law enforcement, prosecutors, and others came together in the mid-1990s to quell a deadly spasm of street violence in the Hub. The announcement was made today by David Nevins, President and CEO of Showtime Networks Inc.

Filling out the rest of the cast: Hingham's own Kevin Chapman, Jonathan Tucker, Mark O'Brien, Jill Hennessy, Lauren E. Banks, Amanda Clayton, Jere Shea and Kevin Dunn.

CITY ON A HILL is created by Chuck MacLean (Boston Strangler) and based on an original idea by Academy Award (R) victor Ben Affleck. The series presents a fictional account of what was driving that change, centered on assistant district attorney Decourcy Ward (Hodge), who comes from Brooklyn and forms an unlikely alliance with a corrupt yet venerated Federal Bureau of Investigation veteran, Jackie Rhodes (Bacon).

CITY ON A HILL is executive produced by Affleck and Academy Award victor Matt Damon and Emmy nominee Jennifer Todd (Jason Bourne, Memento) for Pearl Street Films. MacLean wrote the pilot and executive produces; Michael Cuesta directed the pilot and executive produces. The Brooklynite teams up with corrupt but celebrated Federal Bureau of Investigation veteran Jackie Rhodes (Bacon), to tackle a case that, despite starting off typical, puts Boston's whole criminal justice system in jeopardy. Bacon will serve as co-executive producer. The series, executive produced by Ben Affleck, Matt Damon and Jennifer Todd, will premiere in 2019.
