The July 31 third season premiere of Showtime's City On A Hill will focus on Boston’s high society Beacon Hill neighborhood where former FBI agent Jackie Rohr (Bacon) finds a new job running security for a wealthy family but eventually teams with Assistant District Attorney Decourcy Ward to help fix a broken criminal justice system, said the network.
