Ion Television is adding police drama series “Rookie Blue” from the Disney-abc Television Group to its  general entertainment lineup.

“We’re excited to enter into this agreement with the Disney-abc Television Group and provide our audience with this fresh, new police drama,” said Brandon Burgess, Chairman and CEO of Ion Media Networks, in a prepared statement. “‘Rookie Blue’ fits seamlessly with our current roster of hit series and reinforces our commitment to viewers.”

Pick-up comes on the heels of a number of  programming announcements from Ion, including the acquisition of “Blue Bloods” and a co-production deal for the original series “The Listener.”  Ion has developed a portfolio of popular series picked up from broadcast and cable, including “Criminal Minds,” “Cold Case” and “Law & Order: Criminal Intent,” “Burn Notice,” “Psych” and “Leverage.”
