TNT Orders Pilot for Crime Drama L.A. Noir

L.A. Noir: The Struggle for the Soul of America's Most Seductive City by John Buntin

TNT announced today (via a press release) that the cable network has ordered a pilot for L.A. Noir, based on John Buntin's 2009 book L.A. Noir: The Struggle for the Soul of America's Most Seductive City, which chronicles the epic battle between Los Angeles Police Chief William Parker and mobster Mickey Cohen, a one-time boxer who rose to the top of L.A.'s criminal world.

The series — if subsequently ordered — is expected to be a fast-paced crime drama set in Los Angeles during the 1940s and '50s. It's a world of glamorous movie stars, powerful studio heads, returning war heroes, a powerful and corrupt police force and an even more dangerous criminal network determined to make L.A. its West Coast base.

Frank Darabont (The Walking Dead, The Shawshank Redemption) will executive produce the pilot and direct his own adapted screenplay.
