A second season for "Mob City," Frank Darabont's ambitious L.A. noir drama, has been whacked by TNT, sources confirm.
News arrives after the event series, which starred Jon Bernthal, Milo Ventimiglia, Jeremy Luke and Neal McDonough, saw a weak launch in December, drawing a modest audience during its three-week run on TNT. Show centered on the battle between Los Angeles Police Chief William Parker and mob kingpin Mickey Cohen, and was based on John Buntin's book "L.A. Noir: The Struggle for the Soul of America's Most Seductive City."
"'Mob City' was created as a three-week television event and we are incredibly proud of the six hours we presented of this remarkable drama," said a TNT spokesperson. "Although the ratings of the limited series haven't warranted more hours we are eager to work with Frank Darabont again and were delighted to bring the vibrant world of Mob City to life."
