Blunt Talk

Whether he’s on the bridge of the USS Enterprise as Capt.

That’s all real life.” The rest, Robinson says, is the imagination of writers and executive producers Mark and Robb Cullen. Mr. … Continue reading

Interview: Edward Burns writes what he knows (and loves) in TNT’s Public Morals

After all, Burns is a proud Irish-American and native New Yorker, raised up on Long Island as the son of an NYPD cop and the great-grandson of a bona fide Hell’s Kitchen bruiser. Thus, the Catholic schoolboy turned respected actor/filmmaker has always had tales of Irish-American cops and criminals percolating in his mind — and spilling out into screenplays. And now he has 10 episodes, a stellar cast rich with the New York-bred talent he insisted upon … Continue reading
