Rizzoli and Isles is a 60 minute crime drama series that premiered on July 12, 2010 on TNT. It's based on the books written by Tess Gerritsen featuring the character Detective Jane Rizzoli. Jane partners with Boston, Massachusetts medical examiner Maura Isles in order to solve murders. The two are best buddies but very different. Rizzoli is a no-nonsense cop who would rather share a cigar with the boys at a ballgame than attend a fancy social event. Isles is a very classy lady. Their different personalities complement each other well however and make them a powerful crime-fighting team!

Rizzoli and Isles TriviaAngie Harmon won the National Cover-Girl Contest for Seventeen Magazine at age fifteen! She was "discoverd" for show business by David Hasselhoff during an airline flight. Her second acting gig was with David on his show, "Baywatch" in a sixth season episode titled, "Sail Away". Angie's husband, New York Giants All-Pro defensive back "Jason Sehorn" proposed to her on "The Tonight Show with Jay Leno". She accepted and then her father even came out on stage to give them his blessing!
Many of us have seen the prison scenes on television where a guard makes an incoming prisoner bend over and grab their ankles with their pants down so that the guard can ensure that they aren't using their butt to bring contraband into the prison but no one would imagine that police recruits would get the same treatment at the police academy, right? But if you look closely at the opening scenes for the Rizzoli and Isles episodes, you'll see Rizzoli's Certificate that names her as the "Honor Recruit" of her class on on it, one of those signing it was named, "Lieutenant Procto Krapchek"!
Sasha Alexander plays the role of Dr. Maura Isles on the show and occasionally we see Sharon Lawrence as Dr. Isles' mother. In real life though, Sharon Lawrence is only 12 years older than Sasha Alexander.
