Ed Burns Frank Darabont

Walking Dead writer and director Frank Darabont is already onto his next project, and you might have assumed he'd have gone in the exact opposite direction. But Darabont sees many similarities between the AMC show and his new series Mob City.

But this time, you can sit back and relax, knowing no zombies are going to jump out at you. Fans of the Walking Dead know that the un-dead are only secondary to the human drama, and Darabont said that is what he brings to both shows.

Social media isn’t on the rise any more, it’s booming and taking over in new and creative ways, as TNT’s promotional stunt for their upcoming Mob City demonstrates. The channel will promote its “three-week television event,” by tweeting out the script for the first episode, in its entirety, 140 characters at a time.

Jon Bernthal stars in this inovative (at least in its promotion) drama.

We wouldn’t worry about spoilers though, since even followers of the show’s Twitter (@MobCityTNT) probably won’t be able to keep up with the hundreds of statuses this is bound to produce. The “adaptweetion” will go live line by line, two days before the premiere, the network has announced, via Deadline. The project, a collaboration between TNT and Deutsch NY is a 1940s period series, focusing on 1940s Los Angeles.

Neal McDonough's Willaim Parker will try to rid LA of organised crime in the series

The show - originally title Lost Angels - follows the mostly fact-based story of Los Angeles darkest periods; a time when a corrupt police force do little to curtail the gains of the violent criminal world it should be controlling, as it further cements LA as the hub of organised criminal activity on the West Coast. Arriving in the city to free it from this scourge of criminal activity is Police Chief William Parker (Neal McDonough), who has made it his mission to make Los Angeles a city where people can feel safe to walk the streets again.

Video - Ed Burns And Caitlin Fitzgerald Filmed On Location In Tribeca


Ed Burns and Caitlin Fitzgerald attend a press junket for their movie "Newlyweds" at IDPR Studios in New York. Ed talks about how the film wasn't shot on set but rather on location in Tribeca, Manhattan, in front of perplexed people. Naturally, the pair has entertaining stories about shooting in a 'live environment', such as filming in a bar that hadn't been closed especially for the filming.

Ed Burns also directed Newlyweds, as well as star in it. He will be starring in a film adaptation of I, Alex Cross, alongside Tyler Perry and Rachel Nichols. I, Alex Cross is a novel by James Patterson

Generation Kill Review


Excellent
In their seven-part Iraq War miniseries adaptation of Evan Wright's book Generation Kill, David Simon and Ed Burns roll up a quiverful of arrows to fire off at various topics, ranging from the rampaging adrenaline of young men at war to the supreme idiocy of the invasion itself. However, the bright and gleaming theme running through most of these hard-bitten episodes has the filmmakers illustrating an age-old military maxim: Soldiers are often much more likely to be killed by the decisions of their submoronic leadership than they are by actions undertaken by the enemy. When that enemy is as pathetic a force as Saddam's Republican Guard, and the American officer corps obsessed more with the idea of taking Baghdad at warp speed than properly clearing the territory they're pushing through (both points made time and again in this series), that maxim is even more true than usual.

Wright was a Rolling Stone reporter who somehow got himself embedded in the First Recon Marine unit that was frequently at the very point of the entire American military machine rolling into Iraq in 2003. In the capable hands of Simon and Burns, his story of these turbo-trained alpha-male hunter-killers becomes something unlike most any other film project about the war. It opens in the sands of Kuwait, with the platoons tussling in the sand like overgrown boys, primed with teeth-bared intensity to launch themselves at Saddam's forces; only, in the manner of Jarhead, that great battle never quite seems to come.
