The second current Showtime show to take place in Boston following acclaimed dramedy SMILF, City on a Hill stars Kevin Bacon (The Following), Aldis Hodge (Underground), Jonathan Tucker (Kingdom), Mark O'Brien (Halt and Catch Fire), Jill Hennessy (Crossing Jordan), Lauren E. Banks (Instinct), Amanda Clayton (Bleed for This), Kevin Chapman (Person of Interest), and Jere Shea (Southie). With a 12-episode order, CITY ON A HILL will premiere in 2019.

Based on an original idea from Affleck and exec producer Chuck MacLean, City on a Hill is a fictional account of the "Boston Miracle" police operation. It is set in the early 1990s in Boston, a time when the city was rife with violent criminals emboldened by local law enforcement agencies in which corruption and racism was the norm. The series presents a fictional account of what was driving that change, centered on assistant district attorney Decourcy Ward (Hodge), who comes from Brooklyn and forms an unlikely alliance with a corrupt yet venerated Federal Bureau of Investigation veteran, Jackie Rhodes (Bacon).

Ben Affleck, Matt Damon, Jennifer Todd, and James Mangold are executive producing. The Brooklynite teams up with corrupt but celebrated Federal Bureau of Investigation veteran Jackie Rhodes (Bacon), to tackle a case that, despite starting off typical, puts Boston's whole criminal justice system in jeopardy.

"City on a Hill has the veneer of a classic Boston cops-and-robbers drama, but actually dives head first into challenging the very institutions it depicts", Nevins said. MacLean wrote the pilot and will serve as an executive producer. Bacon will serve as co-executive producer.
