BOSTON -- or East Hollywood?
ABC's scripted film "The Makeover" is but the first of a wave of new shows set in the Hub.
In "Southie Rules" (premiering Tuesday on A&E), an extended family of yuppie-haters tries to keep the neighborhood pure without killing each other.
The docu-series "Boston's Finest" (TNT, Feb. 27) from "Blue Bloods" star and native Donnie Wahlberg spotlights several law enforcement agents.
Not to be outdone, Donnie's brother Mark is producing a pilot for another A&E reality series, "Breaking Boston," focusing on six feisty Hub women. This will never be confused with a Bravo "Real Housewives" show.
How long will this infatuation -- or ridicule -- last? Ratings will tell.
