NEW YORK (AP) - "Mob City" is beginning what is surely TV's first "adaptweetion."
The series, premiering on the TNT network, is tweeting the screenplay of its first episode before it airs.
The Twitter account MobCityTNT will transport followers back to the crime world of gritty 1940s-era Los Angeles, 140 characters at a time. The posts will leave off just before the end of the debut episode, with a startling development awaiting viewers Wednesday when the series debuts at 9 p.m. Eastern.
"Mob City" is from writer-director-executive producer Frank Darabont, who previously helmed "The Walking Dead." It stars former "Walking Dead" regular Jon Bernthal.
