Angie Harmon to Star in Rizzoli

TNT Pilot Based on Tess Gerritson’s Novels

Angie Harmon, who played leading roles on Law & Order and Women’s Murder Club, is returning to the crime-solving world as Rizzoli, a new TNT pilot based on Tess Gerritson’s popular Jane Rizzoli mystery novels.

The pilot is being written by Janet Tamaro (Bones, Lost) and executive-produced by Tamaro and Bill Haber’s Ostar Productions (TNT’s Nightmares & Dreamscapes: From the Stories of Stephen King, TCM’s upcoming Moguls and Movie Stars: A History of Hollywood). Michael M. Robin (TNT’s The Closer) will direct and executive-produce the pilot.

Tess Gerritson has written seven books featuring Jane Rizzoli, a Boston detective. Rizzoli works closely on her cases with medical examiner Maura Isles, who will also be a part of the series. Additional casting will be announced soon.
