New TV Show - TNT's Bunker Hill

10/28/2008 04:52:00 AM
TNT is working on a new pilot starring Donnie Wahlberg and Bridget Moynahan. It's going to be produced by Jerry Bruckheimer and is supposed to be Boston-based.

"Bunker Hill" is about a cop, played by Wahlberg, who comes back to Boston to serve and protect his peeps. Moynahan, who grew up in Longmeadow, plays the police officer's sister-in-law, with whom he has a love-hate relationship.

"We're trying to do it all in Boston," Wahlberg said in a text message. "That's the goal."

Woohoo. An actual tv show filmed in Boston. I heard there's a new show called Fringe (I haven't seen it) that's set in Boston but is actually filmed in New York. That will be awesome if we can start adding TV shows to the mix in addition to all the movies that we've been filming here.

    I found this while googling "Bunker Hill". A location scout just came to my house in Somerville and wanted to film some things on my porch... I told him I wasn't interested because I figured it was some Somerville Community Television stuff... that's what people are usually scouting for. Anyhow, I was a little upset at first when I read this because I thought it said MARK Wahlberg... then I read more closely and got over it when I saw Donnie. haha

    The crew is setting up in front of the parking lot across the street from felt nightclub in china town. Some guy said thee was a guest star coming in tonight or tomorrow night to be in the show. he basically said it was tom brady, by saying moynahans babbiesdaddy was the guest star.

    by the way, if moynahan reads this by some slim chance...are you seriously googling yourself this frequently?
