CITY ON A HILL (2019) Every Sunday on from June 16th, 9 p.m. on Showtime. With 1990s Boston as the backdrop, this crime drama addresses the roles racism and corruption played in law enforcement. In order to take down a ring of armed car robbers, an unlikely alliance is formed between a revered yet corrupt veteran F.B.I. agent, Jackie Rohr, played by Kevin Bacon, and Decourcy Ward, the assistant district attorney, played by Aldis Hodge. Although the ten-episode series is fictionalized, the crime fighters’ unusual approach to subvert Boston’s criminal justice system mirrors the real-life change in police tactics that caused a steep decline of violence in the city in the late 1990s, known as the “Boston Miracle.” The show and the city are made larger-than-life with the help of a heavyweight cast that includes Michael O’Keefe, Jill Hennessy, Gloria Reuben and Kevin Dunn, and executive producers Ben Affleck and Matt Damon.
