Starring Kevin Bacon and Aldis Hodge, Season 2 centres on a federal housing project in the Roxbury neighbourhood of Boston that is plagued with drug violence and a rightful distrust in local law enforcement.
As coalition leader Grace Campbell works tirelessly on behalf of the community, her efforts are undermined by gang activity happening right under her nose.
Enter irreverent FBI agent Jackie Rohr (Bacon), who is here to exploit Boston's defective criminal justice system in a desperate attempt to salvage his own career.
Unfortunately for Jackie, assistant district attorney Decourcy Ward (Hodge) is onto his adversary's latest misstep.
In time, the personal antagonism between these two escalates to an all-out war between the offices of the US Attorney and the Suffolk DA.
No one is safe from the collateral damage.
