Showtime has ordered a 12-episode season of City on a Hill, a Boston-set drama starring Philly's Kevin Bacon and Underground star Aldis Hodge, for 2019, the premium cable network announced Thursday.
Created by Chuck MacLean, it's based on an idea from Ben Affleck, who'll be producing with his Good Will Hunting partner Matt Damon, and is a fictional story inspired by real-life events.
Here's how Showtime is describing City on a Hill:
Since 2013, Bacon has starred in two TV series, Fox's The Following, where for three seasons he played a former FBI agent caught in a cat-and-mouse game with a Edgar Allan Poe-obsessed serial killer; and more recently Amazon's I Love Dick, where he played the title character, a professor who becomes the object of a woman's obsession. Amazon canceled the show in January, after one season.
