About City on a Hill:

The new Showtime series City on a Hill is executive produced by Tom Fontana, Ben Affleck, Matt Damon, Jennifer Todd, James Mangold, Barry Levinson, and Michael Cuesta.

According to Deadline, the series is written by Chuck MacLean (Boston Strangler) and is based on an original idea by Ben Affleck. City on a Hill is set in the early 1990s Boston when “the city was rife with violent criminals emboldened by local law enforcement agencies in which corruption and racism was the norm, until it suddenly all changed.”
