Showtime has released the City on a Hill trailer and poster, which you can view below. The one-hour drama  series stars Golden Globe winner and Emmy nominee Kevin Bacon (The Following) and Screen Actors Guild Award winner Aldis Hodge (Underground). Premiering on Sunday, June 16 at 9 p.m. ET/PT, City on a Hill is currently in production on 10 episodes in New York and Boston.

City on a Hill is created and executive produced by Chuck MacLean (Boston Strangler), with multiple Emmy winner Tom Fontana (Homicide: Life on the Street) serving as showrunner and executive producer.

The series is set in early 1990s Boston, rife with violent criminals emboldened by local law enforcement agencies in which corruption and racism was the norm. In this fictional account, driving change is assistant district attorney Decourcy Ward (Hodge), who comes from Brooklyn and forms an unlikely alliance with a corrupt yet venerated FBI veteran, Jackie Rohr (Bacon). Together, they take on a family of armored car robbers from Charlestown in a case that grows to involve, and ultimately subvert, the entire criminal justice system of Boston.

Produced by Showtime, City on a Hill also stars Jonathan Tucker (Kingdom), Mark O’Brien (Halt and Catch Fire), Lauren E. Banks (Instinct), Amanda Clayton (Tyler Perry’s If Loving You Is Wrong), Tony Award nominee Jere Shea (Passion), Kevin Chapman (Brotherhood) and Jill Hennessy (Crossing Jordan). The guest stars include Sarah Shahi (Fairly Legal), Kevin Dunn (Veep), Rory Culkin, Georgina Reilly, Gloria Reuben (ER), James Remar (Dexter), Dean Winters (Law & Order: Special Victims Unit) and Samantha Soule (Godless).

In addition to McLean and Fontana, City on a Hill is executive produced by Emmy nominee Jennifer Todd (Jason Bourne, Memento), Academy Award winner Ben Affleck, Academy Award winner Matt Damon, Michael Cuesta (Homeland), Barry Levinson (Rain Man) and consulting producer James Mangold (Logan, Walk the Line). MacLean wrote the pilot and Cuesta directed it. Bacon and Jorge Zamacoma serve as co-executive producers.
