About TNT's Rizzoli & Isles

One of cable's Top 3 shows for three consecutive years, Rizzoli & Isles stars Angie Harmon and Sasha Alexander as Boston's top crime-solving duo. Harmon is Jane Rizzoli, a tough-as-nails Boston police detective, and Alexander is Maura Isles, a smart, impeccably dressed medical examiner from a privileged background. Despite being complete opposites, the two women share an offbeat chemistry, an authentic and deep friendship and a unique working relationship that together, helps them to solve the most complex murder mysteries in the city of Boston. Rizzoli & Isles also stars Lorraine Bracco, Lee Thompson Young, Bruce McGill, Jordan Bridges and Brian Goodman. Developed for television by executive producer Janet Tamaro and developed characters created by best-selling crime novelist Tess Gerritsen, Rizzoli & Isles is produced for TNT by Warner Horizon Television, Janet Tamaro's Hurdler Productions and Bill Haber's Ostar Productions. Tamaro and Haber serve as executive producers.

About TNT's Perception

TNT's fascinating drama Perception features one of the most unique crime solvers on television, an eccentric neuroscience professor who is recruited by the FBI to help solve complex cases. Emmy(R) and Screen Actors Guild Award(R) winner Eric McCormack stars as Dr. Daniel Pierce, who possesses an intimate knowledge of human behavior and a masterful understanding of the way the mind works. Although Pierce's mind may be brilliant, it's also damaged as he suffers from paranoid schizophrenia. Rachael Leigh Cook co-stars as FBI agent Kate Moretti, Pierce's former student who has recruited Pierce to consult on cases. Also starring are Arjay Smith, Kelly Rowan and LeVar Burton. In addition, season two features special guest star Scott Wolf (Party of Five, V, Everwood) as Donnie, Kate's soon-to-be ex-husband. In its first season, Perception ranked as one of basic cable's Top 3 new series of the year. The series was created by executive producer Ken Biller and co-executive producer Mike Sussman, with McCormack serving as producer. Perception comes to TNT from ABC Studios.
