It's the end of the road for Mob City. The Los Angeles-based noir drama from Walking Dead creator Frank Darabont will not return for a second season.

AMC is at a crossroads.
Although the cable network's successes in 2013 are hard to ignore — Breaking Bad ended its landmark run to critical raves and an astounding 400-plus percent growth in total viewers, and The Walking Dead remained TV's top-rated drama with a Season 4 premiere that drew 16 million sets of eyeballs — the network faced its share of setbacks. A resurrected third season of The Killing earned better reviews, but it was canceled (again) after failing to deliver an audience (it's since been revived again by Netflix). Worse, freshman drama Low Winter Sun was utterly rejected by viewers despite being paired with Bad's successful final run.

He may have a new show on the air, but Frank Darabont hasn't completely moved on from The Walking Dead quite yet.

A deluxe if derivative wallow in crime awaits viewers of TNT's Mob City (Wednesday, 9/8c) a six-hour primer in film noir attitude from The Walking Dead's Frank Darabont that's as sleek as the brilliantine in "fixer" Milo Ventimiglia's impeccably styled hair. Saturated in neon hues and evocative shadows, this limited-run series (airing in two-hour blocks over three Wednesdays) is gorgeous to behold even when it lays on the noir trappings awfully thick.
Frank Darabont has traded zombies for mobsters.
The former Walking Dead showrunner's latest project is Mob City, based on the John Buntin book L.A. Noir: The Struggle for the Soul of America's Most Seductive City. The book focuses on the battle between gangster Mickey Cohen (Jeremy Luke) and legendary L.A. Police Chief William Parker (Neal McDonough), but the series features a younger Cohen who served as a right-hand man to infamous gangster Bugsy Siegel (Ed Burns).

The Walking Dead has gone through some growing pains over the last three seasons. Under former showrunner Frank Darabont, some viewers complained that the story was lagging, while under other former showrunner Glen Mazzara, the breakneck speed arguably gave some people whiplash. That's not to say each chapter didn't have its own merits, but under new showrunner Scott Gimple, the fourth season will take a more nuanced look at the zombie apocalypse that will really get to the root of each character...
The battle between cops and gangsters heats up in this brand new trailer for TNT's Mob City (premiering Wednesday, Dec. 4 at 9/8c). Acclaimed Walking Dead executive producer/director Frank Darabont explores the world of 1940's Los Angeles in this noir thriller, which also stars Dead alums Jon Bernthal and Jeffrey DeMunn. The series focuses on real-life accounts of the City of Angel's violent criminal underworld, featuring infamous mob figures such as Mickey Cohen and Bugsy Siegel. And judging by the number of bullet-ridden bodies and bloodied faces in the trailer, the show pulls no punches with its realism.
Frank Darabont's noir drama has a new title and its first trailer.
