About Rizzoli and Isles
Angie Harmon stars as Jane Rizzoli, a police detective in Boston who is pulled into a case involving a serial killer that finds ways to antagonize and harm her.
A native Bostonian, Jane is tough and part of a close-knit family. Sasha Alexander stars as Maura Isles, the methodical and blunt medical examiner who is more than a little attractive. Rizzoli and Isles are bonded by their dedication to work and their strong friendship.
The drama also involves the gruff but lovable detective Vince Korsak, Jane's former partner who is a bit hurt that she has taken the likable but green Barry Frost as her new partner; Frankie Rizzoli Jr., Jane's younger brother and a Boston patrol officer who worships her and hopes to one day make detective; and the handsome FBI special agent Gabriel Dean, who may have intentions other than just helping to solve the case.
The drama is based on The Apprentice by internationally best-selling author Tess Gerritsen.
