Based on True Events, Mayor Nick Wasicsko took office in 1987 during Yonkers' worst crisis. As penance for previous misuse of federal housing funds, a federal court orders low-income public housing built in the city's wealthier white neighborhoods. The city threatens to tear itself apart and destroy Nick in the process, in a bitter battle fueled by fear, racism, murder and politics. From The Wire co-creator David Simon.

Congrats to HBO for investing in the mini series format! Cheers to 'Show me a hero' and 'Mildred Pierce'. Superb writting and acting!

I feel like David Simon's can't disappoint me, even if it's not that great it's still good to watch. As a side note, you have to watch this until the end.

What a beautiful show. Tense, gripping, funny, moving. It shows the addictive side of politics and it's also great in its depiction of many different stories with a very realistic touch, never pushing too much on the melodrama. Also, is there a better actor than Oscar Isaac right now?
