RIZZOLI & ISLES
Angie Harmon Interview, Detective Jane Rizzoli
RIZZOLI & ISLES Monday Nights at 10 EST, Season 2 Premieres July 11 on TNT

TNT Press Release: RIZZOLI & ISLES follows Boston detective Jane Rizzoli (Harmon) and medical examiner Maura Isles (Sasha Alexander), complete opposites and good friends who solve crimes and bust some of Boston’s most notorious criminals. Growing up at opposite ends of the economic spectrum, the two remain strikingly different from one another in many ways. Jane, the only female detective in Boston’s homicide division, is a tough and gutsy cop who doesn’t let her guard down (except with Maura), dodges her overprotective mother and is better at basketball than her brother. Maura, meanwhile, is usually more comfortable among the dead than the living. She is always impeccably dressed in designer duds with a steady, sometimes icy temperament. And she is working on curbing her tendency to diagnose the people she meets – including her first dates. Jane and Maura often find themselves working together as both use their brilliant minds and expertise to figure out the “who done it” as well as the “how done it” of Boston’s most complex cases. Despite their many differences, Jane and Maura are best friends, with a quirky and supportive relationship. As Tamaro explains, “That Jane and Maura are so different and yet so effective as a team makes them unusual.… There’s something rare about their relationship that I see in the world but not enough on television: two smart, strong, competent women who instinctively drop the protective shield when they’re with each other.” RIZZOLI & ISLES also stars Lorraine Bracco (The Sopranos) as Angela, Jane’s demanding and intrusive mother; Lee Thompson Young (FlashForward) as Det. Barry Frost, Jane’s somewhat green partner; Bruce McGill (Law Abiding Citizen) as Det. Vince Korsak, Jane’s seasoned former partner; and Jordan Bridges (Dawson’s Creek) as Jane’s brother, Frankie, a patrol cop who hopes one day to become a detective.
I spoke with ANGIE HARMON about RIZZOLI & ISLES. If you enjoyed the first season, just wait until next week. Season one ended so intensely that I had to ask Angie about it. It was such an honor to speak with her. Season two is equally explosive. You are not going to want to miss it. I’ve always been a fan of Angie’s work and a couple of my favorite shows that she has starred in are “Law & Order” and “Law & Order: Special Victims Unit.” Watch Angie as Detective Jane Rizzoli in the Season Two Premiere of RIZZOLI & ISLES on TNT.
