The Boston Police Department has the right stuff.
Detective Tim Stanton and officer Myles Lawton are ready for their close-ups on Donnie Wahlberg’s (“Blue Bloods”) unscripted police drama “Boston’s Finest,” premiering Wednesday at 9 p.m. on TNT.
“It’s a unique opportunity. People have an idea of what the Boston Police do, and they are going to get a real-life version,” said South Boston-raised Stanton, 46. “If you are expecting ‘Cops,’ you are in for a surprise.”
Stanton and Lawton, 36, are among 19 members of the Boston Police Department profiled on- and off-duty.
Stanton, a 24-year veteran of the force, came to the project having previously done “Cops” and a Spike TV program.
“We didn’t want to portray the city of Boston or the Boston Police Department as a pack of goons,” Stanton said. “There are state-of-the-art tools that are used, and a lot goes into solving crimes and cases. It is going to bring people’s views of the Boston Police Department into the 21st century.”
