One of the most notorious behind the scene scandals of recent television history was the ousting of creator from the super succesful show he was so essential for: The Walking Dead.

Now the director of The Shawshank Redemption has a new iron in the fire... and it looks pretty good.

Premiering December 4 on TNT, Mob City centers on the violent fight the Los Angeles police department put up against the threat of notorious and ruthless mobster Mickey Cohen and his outfit in the 1940s and 1950s.

The Walking Dead's Shane, plays the morally ambivalent protagonist Joe Teague, an ex-Marine-turned-LAPD cop.

The two images, along with the teaser, are filled to the brim with atmosphere and rather beautiful hints of violence.

Let's hope Darabont here does for old-school mobsters, what he did for zombies with The Walking Dead!
