L.A. Noir is a planned upcoming television show created by Frank Darabont. It is based primarily on the book by John Buntin.

Plot: L.A. Noir is the true story of a decades-long conflict between the Los Angeles Police Department, under the determined leadership of Police Chief William Parker, and ruthless criminal elements led by Mickey Cohen, a one-time boxer who rose to the top of L.A.’s criminal world. The series is a fast-paced crime drama set in Los Angeles during the 1940s and ’50s. It’s a world of glamorous movie stars, powerful studio heads, returning war heroes, a powerful and corrupt police force and an even more dangerous criminal network determined to make L.A. its West Coast base.


Thoughts on this upcoming TV Show that might as well be exactly like the video game cept different characters?

Same here I love noir stuff and while it isn't based on the video game its within the same era of time as it is. And I loved the 1940s and 50s so I hope it will be good and whats interesting is Simon Pegg I think did a guest spot in this show.

Unless someone else can find it like Spaced because he seems to be a better searcher for stuff because I tried and so far I can't find a specific date but since its done filming I would assume sometime later this year.

Thats nice too bad this upcoming TV show has nothing to do with the video game because its based on a novel as said in the OP.

No because I know what I have read and as interesting as it would seem that it would be based on the video game of a similiar name its not. Its based on a novel.

Game was great! I'm really hoping for the series to come true. It's going to be an amazing story if they stick to the script. A great noir style, kinda like mafia.

Thanks to whoever changed the title to make the point it has no connections to the game? Even though it is its own thing it will still be interesting because it set crime drama set in the 1940s.

that's stupid. if it is in the same time period and setting as the game, then it is relevant.

Maybe because this is the Film & TV forum and not the Games forum. Just a thought...
