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


Recommended Posts

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.
