Production must be imminent for “City on a Hill,” the Ben Affleck- and Matt Damon-produced Showtime pilot inspired by the “Boston Miracle” — when civil leaders helped law enforcement officers reduce street crime in the 1990s. Boston Casting sent out a call this week for cars from 1970 to 1990 for the shoot. If you have a vehicle that fits the bill, you can e-mail email@example.com.
Showtime said in its announcement that the pilot, written by Chuck MacLean, will focus on an “African-American District Attorney who comes in from Brooklyn advocating change and the unlikely alliance he forms with a corrupt yet venerated FBI veteran who is invested in maintaining the status quo. Together they take on a family of armored car robbers from Charlestown in a case that grows to encompass and eventually upend Boston’s city-wide criminal justice system.”
No word yet on stars. Damon and Affleck also produced the Syfy show “Incorporated,” but it was not picked up for a second season.
