The sixth season of TNT’s crime procedural Rizzoli & Isles will receive its UK premiere on UKTV’s Alibi channel on Thursday August 27th at 9pm, it has been announced.
Created by Tess Gerritsen and developed for television by Janet Tamaro, Rizzoli & Isles revolves around Jane Rizzoli, a tough-as-nails Boston police detective, and 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 lets them solve complex murder mysteries in the city of Boston. The drama series is produced by Warner Horizon Television and stars Angie Harmon, Sasha Alexander, Lorraine Bracco, Jordan Bridge, Bruce McGill and Brian Goodman.
The sixth season of Rizzoli & Isles, which like season five runs an extended length of 18 episodes – thanks in large part to its strong ratings performance state-side and TNT’s desire to program year-round – will add a wide array of cases to Jane and Maura’s docket, from a high-end art heist that gives them chance to do some undercover work to an emotionally raw murder investigation targeting one of their own fellow detectives. They’ll even wade into the cutthroat world of competitive bass fishing in order to hook a cold-blooded killer. Adam Sinclair (24) will guest star in several episodes as Kent Drake, an assistant medical examiner.
