Watch the trailer for new Boston-based Sky Atlantic drama, City on a Hill.

City on a Hill In the early 1990s, Boston was a city living in fear. Violent crime was commonplace, with criminals becoming more brazen amidst widescale corruption and racism within local law enforcement.

But this all changed thanks to what was later dubbed “The Boston Miracle”. In this fictionalised account of the events, Kevin Bacon stars as corrupt but venerated FBI veteran Jackie Rohr, who reluctantly teams with African American DA Decourcy Ward (Aldis Hodge). Together, their unlikely alliance subverts the entire criminal justice system of Boston.

City on a Hill airs this September on Sky Atlantic and NOW TV.
