    Showtime Orders Boston-Set Drama Pilot from Ben Affleck and Matt Damon

    Ben Affleck and Matt Damon are bringing their Boston pride to Showtime.

    The cabler has picked up a drama pilot “City on a Hill” from the Oscar winners, who will executive produce the project.

    Based on an original idea by Affleck and Chuck MacLean (“Boston Strangler”), who wrote the script, “City on a Hill” is a fictional account of what was called the “Boston Miracle.” In the early ’90s, corruption and racism was the norm in Boston, until an African-American district attorney from Brooklyn arrives in the city, advocating change. He forms an unlikely alliance with a corrupt yet venerated FBI veteran who is invested in maintaining the status quo. The two take on a family of armored car robbers in a case that eventually upends the city’s criminal justice system.
