Group Description

Discussion group for the NBC show BOOMTOWN.

“Boomtown” tells the street-level story of the City of Angels with a unique twist -- as seen from the diverse perspectives of the city’s unsung and imperfect heroes. These are the cops, paramedics, beat reporters, members of the D.A.’s office and city officials whose stories overlap and intertwine, creating the experience that is “Boomtown.” In a style that can be described as “Rashomon” meets “Pulp Fiction,” the series employs a multiple perspective narrative technique, letting the story unravel as it is experienced from the individual perspectives of the characters -- each of whom have different sensibilities and agendas.

“Boomtown” features Donnie Wahlberg (“Band of Brothers”) as Joel Stevens, an emotionally drained, dedicated detective; Mykelti Williamson (“Forrest Gump”) who received an NAACP Image Award nomination for his performance as “Fearless” Bobby Smith, Stevens’ easy-going, daredevil partner; Neal McDonough (“Minority Report”) who picked up a TCA Award nomination for his portrayal of David McNorris, a politically savvy and ambitious Deputy D.A.; Gary Basaraba (“Brooklyn South”) as Ray Hechler, a veteran patrol officer, and Jason Gedrick (“The Last Don”), as Tom Turcotte, a beat cop struggling to prove himself, and Lana Parrilla (“Spin City”) who received an Imagen Award for Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Drama Series for her portrayal of paramedic Teresa Ortiz. This season Vanessa Williams (“Eraser”) joins the cast as Katherine Pierce, an intelligent, hardworking supervising detective.
