TNT Orders Crime Drama Pilot Based On 'L.A. Noir'

Dave Itzkoff at the New York Times reports that Frank Darabont will write, direct and produce a pilot for the TNT channel called L.A. Noir.

TNT said in a news release that it had ordered a pilot for “L.A. Noir,” adapted from John Buntin’s book of the same title, about the real-life battle between the Los Angeles Police Department and the West Coast mob from the 1930s through the ’60s. The planned series, if it is picked up by the network, will be set in the ’40s and ’50s, and focus on the conflict between the Los Angeles police chief William Parker and the mobster Mickey Cohen.
