Former "The Walking Dead" executive producer Frank Darabont's connections to Atlanta didn't end with his unceremonious Season Two ouster as boss on the Atlanta-shot hit zombie drama last year. "The Shawshank Redemption" director has now struck a deal with Atlanta's TNT to co-produce a pilot of "L.A. Noir" for the basic cable drama network. According to TNT reps, the show will be set in Los Angeles in the 1940s and 1950s and track "the epic battle L.A. police chief William Parker and mobster Mickey Cohen." The show will be a fictionalized account of author John Buntin's critically acclaimed non-fiction account of the era, "L.A. Noir: The Struggle for the Soul of America's Most Seductive City."
