Based on characters created by best-selling crime novelist Tess Gerritsen, 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 and strong working relationship that has helped them bust some of Boston�s most notorious criminals.
Lorraine Bracco stars as Jane�s demanding and intrusive mother, Angela. Lee Thompson Young is Detective Barry Frost, Jane�s somewhat green partner. Bruce McGill plays Detective Vince Korsak, Jane�s seasoned former partner who resents her being paired with Frost. And Jordan Bridges is Jane�s brother, Frankie Jr., a patrol cop who hopes one day to become a detective.
Jane and Maura will take on a number of intriguing cases this season, including a murder carried out during a Revolutionary War re-enactment, a killing in a professional baseball team's locker room, a complicated case involving a surrogate mother and a case involving the Salem witch trials. Jane will also face the return of serial killer Charles Hoyt (Michael Massee � Flash Forward), who takes a special joy in tormenting her.
Among the guest stars lined up for the second season of RIZZOLI & ISLES are Ernie Hudson (Oz, Ghostbusters) as Frost�s father, a Navy admiral; Matthew Del Negro (United States of Tara, Parenthood) as a mechanic who catches Maura�s eye; and Bill O�Reilly (The O�Reilly Factor) as a potential murder suspect.
