TV show description:
From creator Chuck MacLean and based on an original idea by MacLean and Ben Affleck, the City on a Hill TV show is an American drama that unfolds in 1990s Boston, at the dawn of the “Boston Miracle.” Also known as “Operation Ceasefire,” the so-call miracle was named for the results of a problem-oriented policing approach that Boston implemented in the mid-90s to decrease gun violence.
In the early ’90s, violent crime was overwhelming Boston. Racist and corrupt policing only exacerbated the problem. This fictional account centers the new Assistant District Attorney Decourcy Ward (Hodge), late of Brooklyn, New York.
When DA Ward arrives in town, he ends up allying with FBI Agent Jackie Rohr (Bacon). Their partnership is something of a surprise since a little corruption never bothered Jackie. For that matter, neither did a lot.
Together, this newly minted duo targets a Charlestown family of armored car robbers. As the case expands and starts to take shape, it becomes more clear that its tentacles permeate the criminal justice system in Boston.
