Waterfront is a television drama set in Providence, Rhode Island that was originally scheduled to be a midseason replacement on CBS in 2007, but was shelved by the network in 2006 before any of its five completed episodes had aired. The series was produced by Warner Bros. Television.

It starred Joe Pantoliano and Billy Baldwin as the Mayor of Providence and Attorney General of Rhode Island, respectively.

Details

The focal point of this program revolves around the way government operates in the Ocean State and how it plays out in the lives of these two individuals, with the Mayor trying to deal with a corruption scandal that resulted in his ex-Deputy Mayor being indicted, his police chief under fire for letting a famous baseball player go after a DUI only to find out later after that melee that the aforementioned driver was involved in a hit-and-run, and to make matters worse, the person who witnessed the hit-and-run was found dead with a gun that was stolen from the Mayor's home.

It turns out that the Mayor's road to city hall was paved with help from the mafia and he is trying to distance himself from that after learning of the weapon that was used in the shooting. That is all the fuel an ambitious newspaper editor needs to take him down, and by any means at his disposal.

On top of all this, it turns out that the Mayor also to deal with family problems at home from his second wife, his youngest daughter and his stepdaughter, as well as his daughter from his first marriage...who is also the prosecutor in the hit-and-run case.

She also happens to be the star prosecutor in the Attorney General's office, where the person in charge of that role has already set his sights on being Rhode Island's next governor. Despite his popularity, his goal could affect the future of the Mayor's office and the Mayor himself.

All of these events, and what happens along the way, will be observed by the city's new Deputy Mayor (Larenz Tate), who puts it in the opening narration - "the biggest city in the smallest state" where the mayor is often more powerful than the governor.
