finally ordered Frank Darabont's L.A. Noir to series. I've been waiting a long time for this announcement.
As the Deadline article linked above mentioned, the series is based on John Buntin's book L.A. Noir: The Struggle for the Soul of the Nation's Most Seductive City.
I didn't see a premiere date in the article, but I hope they get this up and running soon. This should be a good one.
