City on a Hill: Season 2

Kevin Bacon and Aldis Hodge (Hidden Figures) play partners—one's a District Attorney, the other's a corrupt FBI agent—looking to covertly overthrow Boston's criminal justice system in this '90s-set crime series.

Like HBO's The Wire (set in Baltimore) executive producer Ben Affleck has said he wants each season to focus on a different Boston neighbourhood. The events of season one was largely in bank-robbing Charlestown, while this season will focus on a federal housing project in Roxbury plagued with drug violence.
