City On a Hill Plot
City on a Hill is set in Boston in the initial 90s when the city was widespread with fierce criminals heartened by local law enforcement organizations, in which corruption, tribalism and ‘taking it to the street’ was the standard, up until it all abruptly changed. This is a fictitious version of what was called the “Boston Miracle”.
The change agent is District Attorney Decourcy Ward (Aldis Hodge), who approaches from Brooklyn and forms an improbable association with Jackie Rhodes (Kevin Bacon), a dishonest so far respected FBI veteran who is intensely invested in upholding the status quo.
Together they take on a family of armored car thieves from Charlestown (Jonathan Tucker), (Mark O’Brien) and (James Michael Cummings) in a case that develops to include and finally turn over Boston’s citywide criminal justice structure.
David Nevins, who is the President and CEO of Showtime Networks Inc., in a recent statement said, “City On A Hill has the veneer of a classic Boston cops-and-robbers drama, but actually dives head first into challenging the very institutions it depicts,” he further added, “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.”
