ATLANTA – June 30, 2022 – UPtv, the television destination for uplifting entertainment, will begin airing the first seven seasons of the hit series Blue Bloods next month. The series will debut with a marathon during the network’s “Red, White & Blue Bloods,” July 4th celebration beginning at 5 p.m. ET and running through 3 a.m. ET. Blue Bloods’ regular time slot on UPtv will be Monday through Wednesday 8 p.m. ET – midnight ET, Thursdays 10 p.m. ET – midnight ET and Saturdays 8 p.m. ET – 3 a.m. ET. The series has been licensed from Paramount Global Content Distribution.
“As a family procedural, we’re looking forward to bringing this hit show to our viewers as we know our audience will connect with the series’ universal themes of family unity, loyalty, and law and order,”
said Hector Campos, vice president, content strategy and programming at UPtv. “Tom Selleck leads an incredible ensemble cast who prove in every episode that their dedication to the law is unwavering and is built on the foundation of their love for each other. Our programming is dedicated to relatable stories about relationships filled with love and laughter, and this series is right in the sweet spot.”
Blue Bloods is a multi-generational family cop drama dedicated to New York City law enforcement featuring Tom Selleck as Frank Reagan, the New York Police Commissioner who 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 vet who on occasion uses dubious tactics to solve cases with his partner, Detective Maria Baez. The Reagan women in the family include Erin, a New York 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. 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 female partner and now wife who keeps him on his toes, and has very different reasons than the Reagans for joining the police force.
Blue Bloods also stars Tom Selleck, Donnie Wahlberg, Bridget Moynahan, Will Estes, Len Cariou, Marisa Ramirez and Vanessa Ray.
