Kyra Sedgwick, will star in the new season of The Closer, tonight on TNT. If you have not seen Chief Brenda Lee Johnson get a confession out of a murder, you are in for a treat. Brenda Lee is a southern girl, with a very southern accent in charge of a squad of men who are not too happy to have a woman in charge. Sedgwick is wonderful in her role as the determined lady detective in charge of the Priority Homicide Division of the Las Angeles Police Department.
Rizzoli & Isles
Based on the best-selling novels by Tess Gerritsen, Rizzoli & Isles stars Angie Harmon (Law & Order) as Boston detective Jane Rizzoli and Sasha Alexander as medical examiner Maura Isles. Rizzoli is a tough cop, while Isles is always dressed in designer clothes. It sounds good. Opposites always provide tension and opportunities for good plots. The show airs tonight. I will post a review in a few days.
Who Is In Charge of Their Programing?
TNT is my TV network of choice these days. They seem to have cornered the market on the crime-comedy genre. Except for an hour on Sunday nights for Mad Men, I watch quite a few shows on TNT. These are a few of my favorites: Jada Pinkett-Smith stars as the head-strong nurse on Hawthorne. Timothy Hutton heads a crew of Robin Hood-like thieves on Leverage. A show which reminds me a lot of Oceans Eleven. I just started watching Bones. After watching a few episodes, I had to go to HULU to watch the older shows. Now I am hooked. Bones, based on the crime novels by Kathy Reichs stars Emily Deschanel (yes, she is Zooey’s sister) and David Boreanaz.
The USA network has a new original series, Covert Affairs, starring Piper Perebo as an undercover CIA Agent. Sendhil Ramamurthy (Heroes) and (Christopher Gorham (Ugly Betty) also star. White Collar may not technically be a chick flick, but you know me…if there is a hot guy, it qualifies. Take a look at gorgeous Matt Bomer and tell me I am right.
