Wahlberg & Moynahan to Take on “Bunker Hill”

So I was just checking out“Viewer Discretion”, Matthew Gilbert’s TV column at Boston.com, when I stumbled across some interesting TV news.  It seems that Bridget Moynahan and Donnie Wahlberg will be teaming up for a new crime drama called “Bunker Hill”.

According to Gilbert, Wahlberg will play a cop who returns to Boston to protect the streets where he grew up. And Moynahan will play his sister-in-law, with whom he has a fraught relationship.

Bunker Hill is a section of Boston.  The two stars are both from Massachusetts – Donnie from Dorchester and Bridget from Longmeadow. Me? I’m from Malden and now Newton.  Ok you don’t care, but since we were sharing hometowns I thought I’d throw it out there.

While Donnie may best be known as a New Kid, lets not forget his brilliant turn in “Band of Brothers” and the short-lived but fantastic “Boomtown”.  Bridget was most recently seen on TV in “The Nine”, but around here she’s pretty much known as the mother of Tom Brady’s baby.

I’m kind of ‘eh’ on Bridget but I’ve been a diehard fan of Donnie Wahlberg for about (OMG) 17 years now!  Damn I’m old. I’ll root for a New Kid to do well until my dying days.

I’ll be keeping my eye out for this one.

    if nothing else, it’ll get good ratings around Boston! I agree with you – I’ll always be happy for a New Kid when he’s doing well.

    I’m loving the Boston love (hometown Natick, now in Newburyport) although the Fringe settings alleged to be in Mass. are still bugging me 🙂

    I will definitely be giving this one a shot. I saw Donnie here last night and have just one word: DAMN!
