Update: Check an early review of Rizzoli & Isles.

Take a first look at Angie Harmon and Sasha Alexander in TNT’s new original series, RIZZOLI & ISLES (working title), which is based on Tess Gerritsen’s popular mystery novels.

In RIZZOLI & ISLES, Angie Harmon plays Jane Rizzoli, a Boston detective who works closely with medical examiner Maura Isles (Sasha Alexander) to solve crimes. Lorraine Bracco (The Sopranos) plays a recurring role as Jane’s mother. Also starring in the series are Lee Thompson Young (FlashForward), who plays Jane’s current partner, Barry Frost; Bruce McGill (Law Abiding Citizen) as Det. Vince Korsak, Jane’s seasoned former partner; Jordan Bridges (Dawson’s Creek) as Jane’s brother, Frankie, a patrol cop who hopes to become a detective; and Billy Burke (The Twilight Saga) as FBI agent Gabriel Dean.

Here is another TNT series that I am looking forward to. This also looks like it could be another show featuring two strong female leads.

TNT has ordered 10 episodes of Rizzoli & Isles and plans to premiere it in 2010. You can take a look at another photo from Rizzoli & Isles below.
