Graham Yost ("Speed", "Band of Brothers") created this
stylish ensemble drama that told 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. They were the cops, paramedics, beat reporters, members of the D.A.'s office and city officials whose stories overlapped and intertwined, creating the experience that was Boomtown.

Starring Donnie Wahlberg, Neal McDonough, Mykelti Williamson, Jason Gedrick, Gary Basaraba, Lana Parrilla, Nina Garbiras and Vanessa Williams.

Boomtown debuted on NBC, September 29, 2002.  After an abbreviated first season of 18 episodes, the series was canceled after airing only two episodes of the second season.  NBC, finally, aired the remaining four episodes, which had been produced prior to cancellation, the last weekend of December, 2003.

The first season has been released on DVD.  However, there has been no word, yet, about the six episodes of the second season being released on DVD.
