Saving hostages and defusing bombs is just another Tag on set for actor Hugh Dillon, who stars as Ed Lane, the alpha male of the Emergency Task Force on the CBS police drama 'Flashpoint.' And this isn't your ordinary police show, Dillon told PopEater. Turning real life police dramas into a TV show, Dillon credits the writers for the in-depth reality they bring to each episode.

"These writers go so deep. They don't just sit around and go, 'Okay, let's make some sh** up and hope it fu**ing sticks.' They actually have such real empathy for cops because they know them personally. They want to get these stories right and want to tell it with authenticity," Dillon said.
