What's the scoop on Nashville? Is someone really going to die? — Janet
ADAM: It sure seems that way. But don't expect to know exactly who at the end of Wednesday's midseason finale. That's because the person displaying the tell-tale signs of impending TV death — including drastic, dangerous behavior — could be a bait-and-switch.

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).

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.
