In 1990s Boston, an assistant district attorney and a corrupt yet venerated FBI veteran work together to take on a case that grows to involve, and ultimately subvert, the entire criminal justice system of Boston.

Profound. Provocative. Visually stunning. I hope Oprah and her OWN network gives this a nice Emmy push come next year, because it could very well be a contender.
