A couple 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? Stay tuned.
Set in in early 1960s New York City, Public Morals revolves around the professional and personal lives of the members of the NYPD's Public Morals Division.

The large cast includes Edward Burns, Michael Rapaport, Elizabeth Masucci, Katrina Bowden, Ruben Santiago-Hudson, Wass Stevens, Keith Nobbs, Austin Stowell, Patrick Murney, Lyndon Smith, Brian Wiles, and Cormac Cullinane.

TV show description:
Set in the Early 1960s New York, this crime drama revolves around the members of the Public Morals Division. It's a plainclothes unit of the NYPD whose job it is to police vice crimes such as gambling and prostitution -- laws on the books that no one wants enforced but that curb all kinds of sin and vice. These cops do what's been done for the last hundred years -- they manage it for the city. This all might come to an end when a war between »
About 10 minutes into Tuesday’s series premiere of TNT’s Public Morals, NYPD Lt. King tells a newly hired officer, “It’s our job to curb all kinds of vice. That includes prostitution, pornography, degeneracy and the blue laws. You got that, my man?”
And although the rookie cop assures the lieutenant that he does get it, he quickly learns — as do those of us at home — that the police department’s Public Morals Division doesn’t “curb” vice as much as it sweeps vice under the rug.

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.
“I’ve been trying to get something like this show made for 18 years. So the fact that I’m here tonight at the show’s premiere is the best feeling,” Burns told Variety prior to the screening at New York’s Tribeca Grand Hotel.
TNT will debut “Public Morals” on Aug. 25. Burns plays a Hell’s Kitchen-based cop in 1960s New York and also serves as writer, producer and director. Despite so many responsibilities, the native New Yorker says it was an absolute joy to be hands-on in every aspect of the show.
“With TNT giving me complete creative control of the show, and having Steven Spielberg as an executive producer, »

Thank you, Will Ferrell and Kristen Wiig, for A Deadly Adoption, the "Sabotage" video of Lifetime movies. Ever since the duo had announced they were doing this, it's been clear they set out to make a real Lifetime movie, not a parody. So A Deadly Adoption is a glorious two-hour love letter to the network's flicks and those of us who live for them. Every mega-cheese trope is here, from the opening credits (an aerial shot of a lake house!) to the final words, "Inspired by a true story." So »

Even the most extreme road-runners need their beauty products. So before the Nyrr Airbnb Brooklyn Half Marathon last weekend, we sat down with 30 Rock's favorite fictional assistant Cerie, also known as the beautiful Katrina Bowden, to take a peek at the actor's running day essentials.

A Kickstarter campaign to complete Dennis Hopper’s unreleased final film has topped its $90,000 fundraising goal in three weeks.
The funds will enable director Linda Yellen to finish the comedy “The Last Film Festival,” which was halted in 2010 when Hopper died. The funds will pay for the rights to use footage from other motion pictures, edit the movie and add special effects to complete the film’s narrative.
Yellen said she plans to release the movie in May to coincide with the fifth anniversary of Hopper’s death. She explained that other investment offers would have required cutting certain scenes, altering the film’s score and changing Hopper’s voice.
“Dennis saw a rough cut of the movie before he died and loved it,” she said. “We want everyone to see the same film that Dennis and I envisioned.”
“The Last Film Festival” tells the story of a big-shot Hollywood producer, »

Five years after the actor died of prostate cancer at the age of 74, Emmy award-winning director Linda Yellen is turning to Kickstarter to raise $90,000 -- they have raised over $47,000 with 17 days to go -- in order to put the final edits on the film and release it publicly to fans.

But for Yellen and the film’s cast, including Jacqueline Bisset, Katrina Bowden, Chris Kattan, Leelee Sobieski, and Donnell Rawlings, it’s more than a film. It’s about Hopper’s legacy. “Dennis was such a maverick and independent spirit,” Yellen tells ETonline and this Kickstarter campaign is in keeping with that mentality.
While there was never any hesitation about releasing The Last Film Festival, it was about doing it correctly. Following his death, Yellen says that »

Producers of the last film to feature Hollywood icon Dennis Hopper are turning to Kickstarter to complete the film.
The production is now looking to raise $90,000 to complete post-production and assist distribution on the feature, in which Hopper stars as a big-shot Hollywood producer whose recent flop is accepted in just one film festival – the disastrously executed O’Hi Film Festival.
The picture was written specifically for Hopper by director Linda Yellen and her writing partner Michael Leeds, who pitched the idea to the star after meeting at Sundance. Yellen produces with Bob Jorissen.
Director-producer Yellen said: “May 2015 will mark the fifth anniversary of Hopper’s death, and we wanted to release the movie to coincide »

It's been nearly five years since the death of Dennis Hopper - but there's a strand of hope for what would have been his final film.
It's been nearly five years since the death of Dennis Hopper, at the age of 74. At the time he died, he was working on what would have been his final movie, The Last Film Festival. The film was a few scenes short of completion, and starred Hopper as a Hollywood producer, whose recent movie flop gets accepted in just one film festival. And not a good one.
Called the O'Hi Film Festival, Hopper's producer and his crew then descend on the small time of O'Hi, and chaos ensues. Well, it would have done, had the film been finished. But now a new campaign has been launched to try and get The Last Film Festival finally over the line.

The Nurse may be in 3D, but that’s not how it was viewed – because if it doesn’t have piranhas, Judge Dredd or murderous miners in it, its really not worth the hassle. In Nurse – which is a much-anticipated thing people wanted to see – a murderous nurse spends her evenings offing adulterous bastard men, like some sort of kinky anti-cheating Punisher. Things get complicated when she befriends newbie colleague Danni (Katrina Bowden), who doesn’t look so kindly upon her man-murdering ways. Melodrama ensues… in 3D!
Part stylish thriller, part steamy European slasher film and all Lionsgate, Nurse takes a strong female cast, promising concept, excellent visuals and frequently clever writing and »
