TNT Cancels Mob City — TV Drama From Creator of The Walking Dead
Welcome to cancellation city. TNT has canceled Mob City, which was created by a producer and creator of The Walking Dead.
Mob City is based on the real-life conflict between police and the Mafia in Los Angeles in the 1940s. The series starred Edward Burns, Milo Ventimiglia, and The Walking Dead star Jon Bernthal.
There is quite a connection between Mob City and The Walking Dead. Mob City was created by Frank Darabont, who developed and executive-produced The Walking Dead's first season. Clearly, Mob City did not match the ratings magic of TWD.
"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," says a spokesperson for the network. "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."
Mob City aired six episodes. The series premiered in December 2013 to 2.3 million viewers, with the final two episodes of the season bringing in only 1.35 million viewers apiece. Sadly, we won't get another season of this gritty cop-noir show.
