TNT's Public Morals — Featurette (Behind-the-Scenes)


added: Wed, Aug 5th '15

Unwilling to give up directing duties to another filmmaker, writer and producer Edward Burns decided to direct all 10-episodes of his 60s-set gritty cop series "Public Morals," which, of course, stars himself. Here, Burns explains why he "knows drama" in a new behind-the-scenes featurette for the upcoming TNT drama series.

The show focuses on Terry Muldoon (Burns), an Irish police officer of the New York Public Morals Division who investigates vice crimes in the city and who finds himself in a daily moral dilemma by tempting offers that can make him cross the line into corruption.

The series also stars Michael Rapaport, Elizabeth Masucci (Shame), Brian Wiles (TURN: Washington's Spies), Ruben Santiago-Hudson (Castle), Katrina Bowden (30 Rock), Matt McGorry (Orange Is the New Black), Neal McDonough (Mob City), Kevin Corrigan, Brian Dennehy and Timothy Hutton.

"Public Morals" makes its premiere on Tuesday, August 25th, on TNT.

Edward Burns writes, directs, executive produces and stars alongside Michael Rappaport and Elizabeth Masucci in this powerful police drama that will take viewers to the seedy, gritty streets and bright, seductive lights of 1960s New York. The series centers on Terry Muldoon (Burns), an officer of the Public Morals Division, which investigates vice crimes in the city. Many of Muldoon's fellow cops in the division walk a thin line between morality and crime as vice-related temptations threaten to snare even the best of officers, including Muldoon's partner, Charlie Bullman (Rapoport). As Muldoon watches the Hells Kitchen streets where he grew up devoured by an escalating war within two factions of the Irish-American Mob, he becomes more determined than ever to fight back against the city's dark underbelly so he can provide a safe place where he and his wife, Christine (Masucci), can raise their family.
