Tom Selleck returns to screens tonight (24th September 2010) in the new cop-show 'Blue Bloods', in which he plays New York Police Commissioner Frank Reagan, reports ABC News. Selleck's character is a popular figure with the public, but his relationship with the press and the city's mayor is volatile.
Reagan has two sons, played by Will Estes and Donnie Wahlberg, who are also on the force, and a daughter, played by Bridget Moynahan, who works in the district attorney's office. Much of the series will focus upon the power that the Reagan family have amassed within the city. The first episode, which premieres tonight on CBS, tells the story of how son Jamie, a Harvard law graduate, joins the police force against his father's wishes. In their review of the show, The New York Daily News wrote, "Tom Selleck looks right at home as the police commissioner of New York and his new show, Blue Bloods, looks right at home on New York's streets, where it's all being shot"
65-year-old Selleck is perhaps best known for his starring role as Hawaii-based private investigator Thomas Magnum on the 1980's show 'Magnum P.I'. His most recent movie was the 2010 comedy 'Killers', which starred Ashton Kutcher.
