The City is a crime drama film pilot created in 1977, starring Robert Forster, Ward Costello, Don Johnson and guest starring Jimmy Dean and the (then unknown) Mark Hamill for what was to be a television series that never came to be. In the film, The City, it is about the day in the life of two detectives (Robert Forster as Lieutenant Matt Lewis, Ward Costello as Captain Lloyd Bryant, and later Don Johnson as Sergeant Brian Scott) in Los Angeles solving (in this particular case) a crime where a man is killed for unknown reasons, coming to find an unstable young man (Mark Hamill as Eugene Banks) with a deep hatred against a famous country singer (Jimmy Dean as Wes Collins).

The City was directed by Harvey Hart and written by John Wilder.
