I’ll be honest, I admit that at first I only watched NBC’s ‘Shades of Blue’ because it starred Sons of Anarchy’s Wendy Case, Drea De Matteo. Drea portrays a New York City Detective, Tess Nazario, who has constant husband troubles and works within a corrupt group of other New York City Detectives. I, typically, am not one for police dramas, but damn, this one I couldn’t stop watching. Which is why, I for one, am thrilled to be announcing that ‘Shades of Blue’ has been renewed for a 2nd season on NBC Networks.
Ray Liotta (Detective Matthew “Woz” Wozniak) is thrillingly incredible in the series. Let’s just get that out there. ‘Shades of Blue’ is Ray Liotta like you’ve never seen him before. I, like many of the rest of you, highly questioned Jennifer Lopez and her portrayal of Detective Harlee Santos, but she, as well, has totally blown me away in ‘Shades of Blue’. I am one-hundred-and-ten percent totally invested in this show now. I am wicked excited to see what Season 2 will bring!
The show, if you’re still unfamiliar, tells the story of a corrupt and dirty group of detectives who work in the Anti-Corruption Task Force of the NYPD. While the story closely follows Harlee and her never ending problems, we’re just now starting to get to know the other characters in the show. Check out Drea De Matteo’s interview on ‘Shades of Blue’ below, and tell us in the comments if you’re planning on tuning into Season 2 when it premieres on NBC!
