TNT orders ‘Boston Blue,’ ’72 Hours’

Cabler adds more to burgeoning reality slate

To complement its scripted cop series “Southland,” TNT has ordered real-life police skein “Boston Blue” as well as competition series “72 Hours.”

TBS has added two unscripted comedy skeins, “Deon Cole’s Black Box” and “Who Gets the Last Laugh?”

The TNT shows both have eight-episode orders and are targeted to bow next year.

From exec producer Donnie Wahlberg, “Boston Blue” will take a behind-the-scenes look at the Boston Police Dept.’s gang unit. Along with Wahlberg, Julie Insogna-Jarrett and Seth Jarrett will exec produce.

In “72 Hours,” contestants are dropped from a helicopter into the wilderness and given three days and a GPS tracking device to find a hidden suitcase full of cash. Along the way, they must hike across treacherous terrain and battle the elements to locate the cash before rival teams.

Show comes from Howard Schultz and Rob LaPlante.

TBS’ “Black Box” features “Conan” regular Deon Cole riffing on outrageous vid clips. Show hails from Conan O’Brien’s Conaco shingle and is exec produced by O’Brien, Cole, Jeff Ross, David Kissinger and Doug Karo.

“Last Laugh” is the latest prank show from “Punk’d” creators Ashton Kutcher and Jason Goldberg. The Warner Horizon TV/Katalyst skein challenges comedians to unleash pranks on the public while a live audience determines the winner.

Michael Wright, prexy of TNT, TBS and TCM, will announce a handful of shows in development at Turner’s Gotham upfront Wednesday
