NEW SEASON COMING THIS FALL
Continuing for a second season, Rizzoli & Isles follows Boston detective Jane Rizzoli (Angie Harmon, Law & Order) and medical examiner Dr. Maura Isles (Sasha Alexander, NCIS: Naval Criminal Investigative Service), close friends and complete opposites who, together, solve some of Boston's most notorious crimes. Jane is a blue-collar Boston native with an uncompromisingly brash and beautiful bull-in-a-china shop approach to both cases and life. Maura, raised by affluent and educated, globe-trotting parents, is a quirky combination of a science nerd and an elegantly chic girly girl. As different as they are, they've formed a perfect and unique partnership to unravel complex crimes and catch the bad guy.
In addition to Harmon and Alexander, the series stars Jordan Bridges as (Mona Lisa Smile, upcoming J. Edgar) Jane’s younger brother and a Boston patrol officer who hopes to follow in her footsteps and make detective; Lee Thompson Young (Akeelah and the Bee, FlashForward) as the likable but green Detective Barry Frost, Jane’s new partner; with Bruce McGill (Law Abiding Citizen, W.) as the seasoned and lovable Detective Vince Korsak, Rizzoli's former partner who hides his hurt that Jane is now partnered with Frost; and Lorraine Bracco (The Sopranos) as Jane’s nosy but warm-hearted mother, Angela Rizzoli.
