The Presidents of Entertainment, Showtime Networks Inc. Gary Levine, and Jana Winograd talked about it during the Television Critics Association’s Summer Press Tour. Levine said, “CITY ON A HILL is that addictive kind of meaty and messy show we love at SHOWTIME. With the inspired pairing of Kevin Bacon and Aldis Hodge and the inspired writing of Tom Fontana and Chuck MacLean, we believe there is a rich future for this compelling series.”
