"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. 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," said a TNT spokesperson.

About MOB CITY: Acclaimed filmmaker Frank Darabont (Walking Dead, Shawshank Redemption) brings 1940s Los Angeles to life in TNT's eagerly anticipated three-week television event, MOB CITY. Based on the real-life accounts of the cops and gangsters of the time, this is the seductive story of the violent crime underbelly of America's most glamorous city and those who wanted to control it. Starring Jon Bernthal, Ed Burns, Neal McDonough and Jeremy Luke, MOB CITY premieres December 4 on TNT.
ABOUT THE BOOK: Other cities have histories. Los Angeles has legends. Midcentury Los Angeles. A city sold to the world as "the white spot of America," a land of sunshine and orange groves, wholesome Midwestern values and Hollywood stars, protected by the world's most famous police force, the Dragnet-era LAPD. Behind this public image lies a hidden world of "pleasure girls" and crooked cops, ruthless newspaper tycoons, corrupt politicians, and East Coast gangsters on the make. Into this underworld came two men--one L.A.'s most notorious gangster, the other its most famous police chief--each prepared to battle the other for the soul of the city. A fascinating examination of Los Angeles's underbelly, the Mob, and America's most admired--and reviled--police department, L.A. Noir is an enlightening, entertaining, and richly detailed narrative about the city originally known as El Pueblo de Nuestra Senora la Reina de los Angeles, "The Town of Our Lady the Queen of the Angels."
