Celebrate St. Patrick’s Day With a Blue Bloods Marathon on WGN America (3/17)
Los Angeles, CA, March 14, 2017— Feel the luck of the Irish as you sit around the table with the Reagans this weekend for a St. Patrick’s Day “Blue Bloods” marathon. Starting in the evening of Saturday, March 17 at 6:00 ET/5:00 CT and continuing into Sunday, March 18 at 6:00 ET/5:00 CT, WGN America will air eight hours of the fan-favorite procedural cop drama. The weekend marathon will feature the best moments from the past seven seasons.
“Blue Bloods” is part of WGN America’s exclusive Prime Crime lineup, the only cable destination for TV’s most popular procedurals including “Elementary,” “Person of Interest,” “Law & Order,” “Bones,” and “Cops.” Additionally, WGN America recently added four new scripted series, “Bellevue,” “Shoot the Messenger,” “100 Code” and “Pure,” to join the network’s lineup this year.
About “Blue Bloods”
“Blue Bloods” is a drama about a multi-generational family of cops dedicated to New York City law enforcement. Frank Reagan (Tom Selleck) is the New York Police Commissioner, and heads both the police force and the Reagan brood. He runs his department as diplomatically as he runs his family, even when dealing with the politics that plagued his unapologetically bold father, Henry (Len Cariou), during his stint as Chief. A source of pride and concern for Frank is his eldest son, Danny (Donnie Wahlberg), a seasoned detective, family man and Iraq War vet who, on occasion, uses dubious tactics to solve cases with his partner, Detective Maria Baez (Marisa Ramirez). The Reagan women in the family include Erin (Bridget Moynahan), a N.Y. Assistant D.A., who also serves as the legal compass for her siblings and father, as well as a single parent to her teenage daughter Nicky (Sami Gayle), and Linda (Amy Carlson), Danny’s supportive wife. Jamie (Will Estes) is the youngest Reagan, a Harvard Law graduate and the family’s “golden boy.” Unable to deny the family tradition, Jamie decided to give up a lucrative future in law and follow in the family footsteps as a cop. He’s found a friend and ally in Eddie (Vanessa Ray), his young and eager female partner, who keeps him on his toes, but has very different reasons than the Reagans for joining the police force.
