Donnie Wahlberg: I'm not making a Boston 'COPS'

PASADENA, Calif. — Donnie Wahlberg says he doesn't think he'd be allowed back in his hometown if he made a Boston version of "COPS."

The actor is producing a nonfiction show, "Boston's Finest," that premieres next month on TNT. It follows members of the Boston police department on patrol.

He says other television producers are scouting Boston to do versions of "Jersey Shore" with drunk people who "shout clam chow-dah."

Wahlberg says that might be something fun to watch, but it wasn't the kind of show he wants to make. The "Blue Bloods" actor says there are people he grew up with who are doing heroic work that he wants to spotlight.
