Created by Charlie MacLean, City on a Hill is an American crime drama series. Ben Affleck and MacLean provided the original idea behind the series. The series premiered on 7th June 2019 online and on 2nd August 2019 on Showtime.
Set in the early ‘90s in Boston, the crime series is rife with criminals emboldened by local law enforcement agencies in which ugly heads of corruption and racism have reared.

The latter is a corrupt FBI veteran. A family of armored car robbers from Charlestown is taken on by the duo. The case grows to destabilize the entire Boston city’s criminal justice system.
