    Ousted from The Walking Dead, Frank Darabont returns to television with TNT who have ordered a pilot for a period drama series called L.A. Noir, based on John Buntin’s book L.A. Noir: The Struggle for the Soul of America’s Most Seductive City.

    Darabont will write and direct the pilot and will be one of the executive producers with Michael De Luca (The Social Network, Moneyball) and Elliot Webb (Tall Time Tales).

    Darabont said this through a statement from TNT:

    Reports say no, it's based on John Buntin's novel.



    The Walking Dead's Jon Bernthal, who plays Shane, linked to the lead role, once again playing a cop, his mission to bring down crimelord Mickey Cohen.


    Reports suggest that when Frank Darabont was fired from The Walking Dead, a cast member threatened to walk and asked to be released from his contract, which was granted, if that rumour is true, and the actor is indeed lined up for L.A Noir, then Bernthal will unlikely been seen after season 2 of TWD.

    Still a tinge of regret that Darabont was booted off TWD I liked the sound of some of the ideas he had for plot directions, particularly revisiting Atlanta in a flashback to the tank crew.

    Looking forward to this a lot.

    i say the name change was for the best, look at me 1st thing i thought of was the L.A Noire game seeing as its the same time period and involves mickey cohen

    now people wont think its a tv show made by rockstar :clap:

    i will give it a shot but i really hated the guy who played shane in the walking dead i dont know what it was about him i just hated him the whole time he was in the show :laugh:

    Ed Burns has been tapped to play notorious mobster Bugsy Siegel. Additionally, Robert Knepper, originally cast as a recurring, has been upped to a regular on the 1940s-set crime drama.

    I fell asleep watching it last night. Gave it another watch this evening and thought it was OK if a bit on the slow side. It's not a patch on Boardwalk Empire but it would be unfair to judge it from one episode really.

    Episode 1: A Guy Walks Into A Bar
    Episode 2: Reasons To Kill A Man


    "Here's your cheese lady"

    I really enjoyed it, some plot twists.
    Simon Pegg was great and different to anything he has done before. And per usual Robert Knepper is captivating.

    The ending will leave you thinking what?

    Joe Teague (Joe Bernthal) killed Hecky Nash (Simon Pegg) not just is Teague working for Bugsy Siegel, but the photo evidence would connect back to Jasmine (Hecky Nash's ex-girlfriend), later we find out at the end that Jasmine is Teague's ex wife!

    Being pretty much obsessed with that period of American history, I will certainly be watching this when it gets over here.

    Ep 3 & 4: Red Light / His Banana Majesty
    Ep 5
    & 6: Oxpecker / Stay Down (Finalé)

    Really enjoyed all 6 episodes.
    Interesting characters, though we only knew more about Joe Teague and Jasmine Fontaine and not so much about the others, but did not really matter. The violence and action moments were well done. There was a lack of songs in the final batch of episodes would be my only niggle to add more atmosphere to the era.

    I've got them saved up to watch in one hit some time in the next couple of weeks while I'm off work. From the little snippets I've seen so far it's definitely got an authentic feel to it as far as capturing the look of the era goes. It looks like it's going to be pretty good

    I thought this was a really good series. Lot of twists and turns, surprisingly violent and gory at times, decent story and a good cast. Some interesting set ups for a potential second season if they get one.
    I'm glad I did them in one hit, it was a lot easier to keep track of the plot. Definitely worth a look
