DESCRIPTION:
(from Showtime's press release, August 2019) Today, SHOWTIME announced that it has picked up a second season of its acclaimed drama CITY ON A HILL. Starring Golden Globe(R) winner and Emmy(R) nominee Kevin Bacon (The Following) and Screen Actors Guild(R) award winner Aldis Hodge (Underground), the one-hour drama currently airs on Sundays at 9 p.m. ET/PT, and will have its season one finale on Sunday, August, 18. CITY ON A HILL is averaging 3.5 million viewers per week across platforms. The announcement was made today by Gary Levine and Jana Winograde, Presidents of Entertainment, Showtime Networks Inc., at the Television Critics Association's Summer Press Tour. "CITY ON A HILL is that addictive kind of meaty and messy show we love at SHOWTIME," said Levine. "With the inspired pairing of Kevin Bacon and Aldis Hodge and the inspired writing of Tom Fontana and Chuck MacLean, we believe there is a rich future for this compelling series." City On A Hill is created and executive produced by Chuck MacLean (Boston Strangler), with multiple Emmy winner Tom Fontana (Homicide: Life on the Street) serving as showrunner and executive producer. The series is set in early 1990s Boston, rife with criminals emboldened by local law enforcement agencies in which corruption and racism was the norm. In this fictional account, assistant district attorney Decourcy Ward (Hodge) arrives from Brooklyn and forms an unlikely alliance with a corrupt yet venerated FBI veteran, Jackie Rohr (Bacon). Together, they take on a family of armored car robbers from Charlestown in a case that grows to involve, and ultimately subvert, the entire criminal justice system of Boston. Produced by SHOWTIME, season one of CITY ON A HILL stars Jonathan Tucker (Kingdom), Mark O'Brien (Halt and Catch Fire), Jill Hennessy (Crossing Jordan), Lauren E. Banks (Instinct), Amanda Clayton (Tyler Perry's If Loving You Is Wrong), Kevin Chapman (BROTHERHOOD), Tony(R) Award nominee Jere Shea (Passion) and guest star Sarah Shahi (Fairly Legal).
