Donnie Wahlberg has cancelled a new season screening of his Boston's Finest reality Tv show following the death of a cop featured in the series.

Pat Rogers, who appeared in the first season of the Tv programme and several episodes of the second, was found dead this week (beg18Nov13) in a suspected suicide, and the tragedy prompted Tv bosses to call off the season two premiere event which was due to be held in Boston, Massachusetts on Tuesday night (19Nov13).

Wahlberg, who produces the show and had been due to attend the screening, later paid tribute to Rogers in a post on his Twitter.com page, writing, "I am so deeply saddened tonight. My thoughts and prayers go out to a fallen brother of The Boston Police Dept (sic)."

A message posted on the Tv show's official Facebook.com page reads, "We stand with the men and women of the Boston Police Department and send heartfelt condolences to family, friends and fellow officers."
