Rizzoli & Isles Returns

As TNT gears up for the return of Rizzoli & Isles, the network is going to get fans in the mood with a whole day devoted to cable’s #1 crime-drama.

isles01On Tuesday, June 17, TNT will present the entire fourth season of Rizzoli & Isles, beginning at 5 a.m. (ET/PT). The 16-hour marathon will lead directly into the season five premiere at 9 p.m. (ET/PT).

Based on characters created by best-selling crime novelist Tess Gerritsen and developed for television by Janet Tamaro, Rizzoli & Isles stars Angie Harmon as Jane Rizzoli, a tough-as-nails Boston police detective, and Sasha Alexander as Maura Isles, a smart, impeccably dressed medical examiner from a privileged background. Despite being complete opposites, the two women share an offbeat chemistry, an authentic and deep friendship and a unique working relationship that together, helps them to solve the most complex murder mysteries in the city of Boston.

Rizzoli & Isles also stars Jordan Bridges as Jane’s brother, Detective Frankie Rizzoli Jr.; Bruce McGill as Sgt. Detective Vince Korsak, Jane’s steady old-school Homicide Squad teammate; and Lorraine Bracco as Angela, Jane’s meddling mother.

In season five, Jane and Maura will investigate more complex and dangerous cases than ever before, including the murder of a jogging mother that leads to the search for her missing baby, the pursuit of a killer who uses online ads to lure in the perfect candidate for murder, and the investigation of a man killed in his supposedly impenetrable doomsday shelter. The team will also deal with the loss of a dear friend and colleague as they say goodbye to Detective Barry Frost (Lee Thompson Young).

Developed for television by Janet Tamaro and based on a series of novels by best-selling crime writer Tess Gerritsen, Rizzoli & Isles is produced for TNT by Warner Horizon Television and Bill Haber’s Ostar Productions. Haber, Michael Katleman and showrunner Jan Nash serve as executive producers.
