The 1940s-set drama opens in post-war L.A. where the city is caught between a powerful and corrupt police force and a criminal network determined to set up shop on the West Coast.

To accomplish his mission, Parker sets up the new task force within the LAPD headed by Detective Hal Morrison (The Walking Dead's Jeffrey DeMunn) and Detective Joe Teague (Bernthal), an ex-Marine who holds his cards close to the vest. Gregory Itzin, Robert Knepper, Milo Ventimiglia and Alexa Davalos co-star. Darabont, Michael De Luca (The Social Network) and Elliot Webb (Alpha House) will executive produce.
