City on a Hill is a fictionalized version of what was called The Boston Miracle, a program aimed at cleaning up the crime-ridden streets of Boston back in the early 1990s. Kevin Bacon stars as a corrupt FBI agent with a reputation for breaking the rules and being a loose cannon. That description would also apply to the character Bacon played for three seasons on The Following, but Bacon told us that’s where the comparisons end, because “City on a Hill’s” Jackie Rohr is a much different kind of man.
