Storyline

In the early 1990s, Boston was rife with violent criminals emboldened by local law enforcement agencies in which corruption and racism was the norm - and then it all changed in what was called the "Boston Miracle." In this fictional account, assistant district attorney Decourcy Ward comes from Brooklyn and forms an unlikely alliance with a corrupt yet venerated FBI veteran, Jackie Rohr. Together, they take on a family of armored car robbers in a case that grows to involve, and ultimately subvert, the entire criminal justice system of Boston. Written by SHOWTIME

Emmy nominees and maybe winners! Casting, Acting, Directing- awesome!
22 July 2019 | by Movideo-4See all my reviews

To truly make it believable the viewer has to be overwhelmingly engaged. This show is a masterclass through S1 E6, with E6 taking it a notch higher. Kevin Bacon has no shortage of virtuoso performances, once again he is hypnotic. My money is on him for the Emmy!
