A couple of years ago, Edward Burns appeared in a TNT limited series called Mob City. It didn't perform very well in the ratings. Now, he's back on the network in a much bigger role -- as an actor, director, and writer. Will Public Morals be a success for Burns and the cable channel? Cancelled or renewed for a second season?

At the premiere of TNT’s new drama series “Public Morals” on Wednesday evening, creator and star Edward Burns was in a festive mood. It has taken the actor-filmmaker nearly two decades to get his passion project about Irish-American gangsters onto the screen.
