Shades of Blue TV series

Rather than looking at new cop themed movies, I thought it would make a nice change to focus on a new TV series instead. This week I discovered 'Shades of Blue' which has just launched on US TV. Shades of Blue is an American police procedural television series created by Adi Hasak. It is set in New York City and stars Jennifer Lopez as the main character Harlee Santos, a single-mother NYPD Detective, who is forced to work in the FBI's anti-corruption task force, while dealing with her own financial problems.The series also stars Ray Liotta and let's hope it reaches the UK. Watch the trailer.....


Calling all James Bond fans and film fans in general. See the new Bond in Motion Exhibition at the London Film Museum. If you're quick, Groupon are currently running an offer for the exhibition with up to 28% off.

Bond in Motion, Covent Garden
Bond in Motion is the official exhibition of James Bond vehicles that feature in the renowned film series. It is the largest display of its kind ever staged in London. 
James Bond first hit the big screen in 1962, when Ian Fleming’s 007 was introduced to cinema audiences around the world as the double o agent in Dr No. Half a century and six Bonds later, the franchise is now one of the longest running in cinema history. In the main exhibition space the numerous vehicles on display include the archetypal Bond car, the Aston Martin DB5, Goldfinger’s majestic Rolls-Royce Phantom III and the unforgettable Lotus Esprit S1 submersible from The Spy Who Loved Me. Displayed alongside less predictable 007 modes of transport such as the Citroën 2CV and the Crocodile Submarine the exhibit also includes a variety of aircraft, boats and motorcycles.
These creative action vehicles play a pivotal role in all 23 movies and continue to propel James Bond to the cutting-edge of cinematic espionage. There are no replicas - every vehicle exhibited is an original used for filming. The majority are loaned from the archive of EON Productions who produce the movies and the Ian Fleming Foundation who have located and restored many of the vehicles.
The upper mezzanine features several examples of the creative process of the production company’s art department - never-before-seen concept art and storyboards.
Bond In Motion displays both the adrenalin-pumping high performance machinery and the unique 007 defining inventions that are essential to the continuing James Bond story.

I've finally completed my part of the editing for Teen Cops 2

Well I've finished my last read through (for now) of the new Teen Cops book and now it's over to the editors to work their magic. I won't be resting though until I check it another thousand times and then I should be set for a Kindle pre-release mid September. OK that's enough about me now and let's look at the new movie release for the week; 'The Equaliser'

Washington State Weed

Well here's something you don't read about in the news every day.....
Washington state's new recreational marijuana shops will open next week for the first time to legally sell marijuana to adults. But there's a problem: They're low on weed.
"Supply is going to be tight as this market launches," said Brian Smith, communications director for the state Liquor Control Board --the agency charged with regulating the nascent retail marijuana market. "This is an emerging market that doesn't exist anywhere in the world. It's a lot different than Colorado. And just like Colorado did when it first opened up, it had some shortages, but Washington's supply system is very robust and in a little bit of time all those suppliers will be feeding into the retail chain and there will be a lot."
The LCB will issue the first retail marijuana business licenses on Monday to about 20 outlets, Smith said. That gives the new pot shops about 24 hours to enter their cannabis inventory into the state's seed-to-sale marijuana tracking system so they can open for business on Tuesday.
"We've been looking at population and geography on where retail shops' locations," Smith told The Huffington Post. "We've moved maybe 30 forward, but not all of them are going to be ready come next week. We'd like to open several in Seattle, considering it's the big city, but it's going to be difficult come Tuesday."

Bang goes my story about drug trafficking in Washington Sate. No just kidding.
