Plot Synopsis

Executive produced by Matt Damon, Ben Affleck and series creator Chuck MacLean, CITY ON A HILL is a one-hour drama series set in early 1990s Boston, where racism is endemic and crime is widespread. In this fictional account, driving change is assistant district attorney Decourcy Ward, who 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 from Charlestown in a case that grows to involve, and ultimately subvert, the entire criminal justice system of Boston. The series opens with an armored truck heist in Revere that leaves three guards missing, and Jackie and Decourcy struggle to align their moral compasses. However, the two men find themselves in a faux-alliance that may, ultimately, turn into something real. The premiere episode is available for free now on YouTube, Facebook and The episode is also available across multiple television and streaming providers' devices, websites, applications and authenticated online services and their free On Demand channels.

Decourcy considers the best course of action to finally carry out justice for the murdered guards. Jimmy is desperate to weasel his way out of the mess he's created, even if it means putting his brother's future into question. Jenny faces what has been haunting her all these years.
