October 27, 2015 – The Live-Action Series Wicked City Premieres on ABC
“Feels like the very first time…”
On October 27, 2015, the live-action procedural series Wicked City premiered on ABC. Set in Los Angeles in 1982, the series follows two detectives on the trail of a pair of serial killers running loose on the Sunset Strip. However, due to poor reviews from critics and little interest from viewers, only three episodes aired before the series was pulled and cancelled, with the five remaining episodes made available on Hulu later that year. The series was created by Steven Baigelman, and starred Jeremy Sisto as Jack Roth, Taissa Farmiga as Karen McClaren, Gabriel Luna as Paco Contreras, Jaime Ray Newman as Allison Roth, Evan Ross as Diver Hawkes, Ed Westwick as Kent Grainger, Anne Winters as Vicki Roth, Karolina Wydra as Dianne Kubek, and Erika Christensen as Betty Beaumontaine.
