Frank Darabont left AMC's "The Walking Dead" in a dispute with the network last year during production of the hit zombie series' second season. But while the zombies are continuing to shuffle over there, Darabont is back with a new series, and he's got several familiar faces with him.
TNT has ordered six episodes of the currently untitled series, set in Los Angeles during the 1940s and '50s, that follows the exploits of cops and mobsters. It's based on the book "L.A. Noir: The Struggle for the Soul of America's Most Seductive City" by John Buntin, which told the story of the battle between Los Angeles Police Department chief William Parker and mobster Mickey Cohen.
