CBS’s “Blue Bloods” is a drama about a multi-generational family of cops dedicated to New York City law enforcement. Frank Reagan is the New York Police Commissioner, and he heads both the police force and the Reagan brood.

He runs his department as diplomatically as he runs his family, even when dealing with the politics that plagued his unapologetically bold father Henry during his stint as chief. A source of pride and concern for Frank is his eldest son, Danny, a seasoned detective, family man and Iraq War veteran who on occasion uses dubious tactics to solve cases with his partner, Detective Maria Baez. The Reagan women in the family include Erin, a N.Y. Assistant D.A. who also serves as the legal compass for her siblings and father, as well as a single parent to her teenage daughter Nicky; and Linda, Danny’s supportive wife. Jamie is the youngest Reagan, a Harvard Law graduate and the family’s “golden boy.”

Unable to deny the family tradition, Jamie decided to give up a lucrative future in law and follow in the family footsteps as a cop. He’s found a friend and ally in Eddie, his young and eager female partner, who keeps him on his toes but has very different reasons than the Reagans for joining the police force.

“Blue Bloods” stars Tom Selleck (Frank Reagan), Donnie Wahlberg (Danny Reagan), Bridget Moynahan (Erin Reagan), Will Estes (Jamie Reagan), Len Cariou (Henry Reagan), Amy Carlson (Linda Reagan), Marisa Ramirez (Det. Maria Baez), Sami Gayle (Nicky Reagan-Boyle), and Vanessa Ray (Officer Eddie Janko).

“Blue Bloods” is produced by CBS Television Studios. It is executive produced by Leonard Goldberg, Kevin Wade, Ian Biederman, Brian Burns, Siobhan Byrne-O’Connor and Jane Raab. It was created by Mitchell Burgess and Robin Green
