New Release: Rizzoli & Isles Season 1 DVD

Rizzoli & Isles sceneTNT’s female cop show Rizzoli & Isles debuted on DVD on June 28, 2011, from Warner Home Video.

The TV drama ended its first season last year with high ratings, and it’s not surprising as it stars Angie Harmon, of cop TV pedigree Law & Order, and Sasha Alexander, of cop TV veteran NCIS. It also stars Jordan Bridges (TV’s Conviction), Lee Thompson Young (TV’s FlashForwad), Bruce Gill (Law Abiding Citizen) and Lorraine Bracco (TV’s Sopranos).

The television series follows, natch, Rizzoli (Harmon) and Isles (Alexander), a detective and forensics expert, as they solve crimes and try to ignore the problems in their personal lives. The show is based on the Rizzoli & Isles novels by Tess Gerritsen.
