About Rizzoli & Isles
Angie Harmon (Law & Order) and Sasha Alexander (NCIS) co-star as Boston detective Jane Rizzoli and medical examiner Maura Isles, 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, 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. The drama series also features the seasoned and lovable Detective Vince Korsak (Bruce McGill), Rizzoli's former partner who hides his hurt that Jane has a new partner, the likable but green Detective Barry Frost (Lee Thompson-Young); Frankie Rizzoli Jr. (Jordan Bridges), Jane's younger brother and a Boston patrol officer who hopes to follow in her footsteps and make detective; and her nosy but warm-hearted mother Angela Rizzoli (The Sopranos' Lorraine Bracco).
RIZZOLI & ISLES is based on the crime novels by internationally best-selling author Tess Gerritsen.
