UKTV’s is (ever so slightly) tweaking their scheduling plans for their newest acquisition Rosewood, which they picked up last week in a deal with Twentieth Century Fox Television Distribution.
The company’s pay channel Alibi has announced that the first season of the Morris Chestnut starrer will now premiere on Tuesday July 26th at 8pm. (The show’s first season was initially set to premiere on the same day in the 9pm slot).
Rosewood follows Dr Beaumont Rosewood Jr, (Morris Chestnut), the most brilliant private pathologist in Miami. Using his wildly sophisticated autopsy lab, he performs for-hire autopsies to uncover clues that the Miami PD can’t see. His new partner-in-crime is Detective Villa (Jaina Lee Ortiz), a Miami PD detective with attitude and demons to spare. While she’s impressed by Rosewood’s incredible abilities, his constant optimism is more annoying than it is infectious. But somehow, week-to-week, this unlikely tag team will solve many crimes together.
Joining Rosewood in his practice are his sister and “toxicology queen,” Pippy (Gabrielle Dennis); and DNA specialist Tara Milly Izikoff aka TMI (Anna Konkle), who is Pippy’s fiancée. Plagued with his own set of medical ailments, Rosewood sees that every moment of life should be embraced and lived to the fullest. And those moments of victims’ lives that will never be are what drive him the most.The hour-long drama was created by Todd Harthan is being produced 20th Century Fox Television. The executive producers are Todd Harthan, Wyck Godfrey and Marty Bowen.
