'Blood' flows to Marshall-Green


"Traveler" star Logan Marshall-Green has landed the lead on NBC's cop drama pilot "Blue Blood," from writer Neil Tolkin and director Brett Ratner.

Additionally, the network has ordered two additional scripts from the project, produced by 20th Century Fox TV and studio-based Little Engine and Rat TV.

Based on Edward Conlon's memoir, "Blood" is an ensemble show about NYPD rookie cops assigned to street patrol. The show centers on one of the cops, Ed (Marshall-Green), a Harvard graduate.

"Blood," which will be filmed in New York, is being executive produced by Tolkin, Ratner and Little Engine's Gina Matthews and Grant Scharbo.

This year on the ABC drama "Traveler," Marshall-Green played one of the two leads, Tyler Fog. His résumé also includes recurring roles on Fox's "24" and "The O.C."

On the big screen, Marshall-Green appears in "Across the Universe."
