The real stories are twofold: the sicko/crackhead crimes on which the popular cop drama is based and backstage politics.

The real stories are twofold: the sicko/crackhead crimes on which the popular cop drama is based and backstage politics. The latter featured the departure of prima donna actor David Caruso, to the regret of no one, apparently, but to the profit of the tabs that blared the snit-fit at the checkout line. A dual memoir in some ways, as Milch details the first few seasons of NYPD Blue from his perspective, including bits of Clark’s career and telling how they were spun into episodes. A quick, entertaining, and educational read that shows several sides of Milch’s character. Oh, and David Caruso is apparently a real tool. 2 people found this helpful.

Milch, a TV screenwriter and producer who has worked on NYPD Blue as well as Murder One and Hill Street Blues, befriended New York . But True Blue is a lot more than good showbiz anecdotes.

Milch, a TV screenwriter and producer who has worked on NYPD Blue as well as Murder One and Hill Street Blues, befriended New York City police detective Bill Clark when Clark was hired to help provide accuracy in NYPD Blue‘s scripts. Much of True Blue is told in Clark’s voice, as he relates details from actual cases he worked on that became plots on episodes of NYPD Blue. The book delves deeper, telling the story of how Bill Clark’s life changed as this working-class New York cop became more involved with Hollywood, eventually retiring from the force to sign on as a full-time consultant to the show.

I'm a big fan of NYPD Blue as I consider it one of - if not the - best dramas ever aired on network television. I didn't know what to expect from the book by David Milch and Detective Bill Clark but I was amazed at the result. As the two guiding forces behind the show Clark and Milch provide serious insight into its creation, some of the story lines and even the actors. Notable here is Milch's account of the turbulent David Caruso years, but even beyond that it's fascinating to read about the personality and working comments of other actors in the series, especially Dennis Franz and James McDaniel. This book was so great that I had to pace myself because I knew I would be finished before I wanted to be, a prophecy that rang true. All good things must come to an end and this was sadly the case with True Blue. I simply could not put this book down.

A dual memoir in some ways, as Milch details the first few seasons of NYPD Blue from his perspective, including bits of Clark’s career and telling how they were spun into episodes. A quick, entertaining, and educational read that shows several sides of Milch’s character. Oh, and David Caruso is apparently a real tool.

This is a very interesting book about how NYPD Blue was conceived and brought to life. Best of all is hearing about the contributions of Bill Clark, NYPD detective, who's stories of the real crimes he worked to solve often found their way into storylines.

Go behind the scenes of this legendary TV show, as told by one of the show creators David Milch and by Bill Clark, the actual NYPD detective whose stories and expertise help fashion 12 seasons of superb police drama. Interesting to read the true stories that inspired the fabulous writing, and learn about the process of making these episodes happen. My husband and I just watched the entire series over several months - about 260 episodes - this series never grows old.
