Marshall-Green the Lead in Blue Blood


“Traveler” star Logan Marshall-Green has landed the lead on NBC’s cop drama pilot “Blue Blood,” from writer Neil Tolkin and director Brett Ratner, says The Hollywood Reporter.

The network has also ordered two additional scripts from the project, produced by 20th Century Fox TV and studio-based Little Engine and Rat TV.

Based on Edward Conlon’s memoir, “Blood” is an ensemble show about NYPD rookie cops assigned to street patrol. The show centers on one of the cops, Ed (Marshall-Green), a Harvard graduate.

“Blood,” which will be filmed in New York, is being executive produced by Tolkin, Ratner and Little Engine’s Gina Matthews and Grant Scharbo.
