TNT picks up LA Noir to series

Long rumored to be a shoo-in, now its official.

Six episode order, I bet it will be a big hit for TNT and get lots more.

The series is a fast-paced crime drama set in Los Angeles during the 1940s and ’50s. It’s a world of glamorous movie stars, powerful studio heads, returning war heroes, a powerful and corrupt police force and an even more dangerous criminal network determined to make L.A. its West Coast base....

LA Noir stars Jon Bernthal as Joe Teague, an ex-Marine now working as an LAPD cop in an era rampant with police corruption. Jeffrey DeMunn plays Det. Hal Morrison, who heads up the LAPD’s new mob squad, with Jeremy Strong as Det. Mike Hendry, Morrison’s second in command. Neal McDonough is Capt. William Parker, Teague’s boss who is determined to weed out corruption and bring down Mickey Cohen. And Milo Ventimiglia plays Ned Stax, who fought alongside Teague during World War II but who now works as a lawyer with connections to the mob. The project also co-stars Ron Rifkin plays Los Angeles Mayor Fletcher Bowron, who makes it his mission to clean up corruption in city government; Pihla Viitala* as Anya, the head bartender at Bunny’s on Central Avenue, the West Coast center of the African-American jazz scene; and Alexa Davalos as Jasmine, a beautiful woman whose past has come back to haunt her.

Oh, good! I love Neal McDonough. I'm looking forward to seeing how this show works out.

I'm expecting a somewhat tamer Boardwalk Empire.

And I forgot to mention, Frank Darabont is the showrunner. That, and the cast, and the premise, spells winner to me.

Ditto. I love the premise (I'm a sucker for the '40s/'50s), Darabont is usually solid, and the cast looks great. I'm really looking forward to this.

Anything that isn't set in the present day is a welcome departure from the television norm. Let's hope this is good (and, if it is, that it lasts).

L.A. Confidential: The Series. Long overdue.

A shame that pilot version of that with Kiefer Sutherland from so many years ago didn't pan out.
