Showtime releases first trailer for Ben Affleck and Matt Damon’s City On A Hill

We got a bit excited when we brought you news of City On A Hill last year. Showtime’s crime drama – exec produced by Ben Affleck and Matt Damon – stars Kevin Bacon and Aldis Hodge.

The story tells is set in the early 1990s, where Boston was rife with violent criminals emboldened by local law enforcement agencies in which corruption and racism was the norm – and then it all changed in what was called the “Boston Miracle.” In this fictional account, assistant district attorney Decourcy Ward comes from Brooklyn and forms an unlikely alliance with a corrupt yet venerated FBI veteran, Jackie Rhor. Together, they take on a family of armoured car robbers in a case that grows to involve, and ultimately subvert, the entire criminal justice system of Boston.

Here’s the first trailer.

With Sky’s deal with Showtime, expect to see this in September on Sky Atlantic in the UK.
