TORONTO – The new cop series “The Bridge,” based on the insights of former Toronto police union head Craig Bromell, debuts tonight on CTV.
Aaron Douglas stars as police officer turned union head Frank Leo, who is trying to clean up the force.
Bromell says although there are some similarities between him and Douglas’s character, the show is purely fictional.
Bromell was a police officer for 19 years before becoming president of the Toronto Police Association in 1997.
He left his post in 2003.
The show is taped in Toronto but the police force in it isn’t set in a particular city.
