EMMY AND GOLDEN GLOBE AWARD WINNER TOM SELLECK
AND MIMI ROGERS STAR IN "STONE COLD," A NEW TELEVISION MOVIE
THAT HAS BEGUN PRODUCTION IN HALIFAX, NOVA SCOTIA,
FOR BROADCAST ON THE CBS TELEVISION NETWORK
STONE COLD, starring Emmy and Golden Globe Award winner Tom Selleck ("Magnum P.I.") and Mimi Rogers ("The Door in the Floor"), has started production in Halifax, Nova Scotia for broadcast on the CBS Television Network. The movie, based on the best-selling Jesse Stone series of novels by Robert B. Parker, is about a hard-drinking, hard living small town police chief who, after a series of murders panic the town's residents, must pull his life together in order to track down the killer.
Jesse Stone (Tom Selleck) is a former L.A. homicide detective who left behind the big city and an ex-wife to become the police chief of the quiet New England fishing town of Paradise. Stone's old habits die hard as he continues to indulge his two favorite things -- scotch and women. When a series of murders takes place and a high school girl is raped, he's forced to face his own demons in order to solve the crimes. And, since these are the first murders to occur in Paradise, Jesse must also train his inexperienced staff of police officers to assist in the investigation to find the killers and the rapist before they can strike again.
Mimi Rogers plays Rita Fiore, an attorney who catches Stone's eye while defending one of the accused rapists.
STONE COLD is a production of Brandman Productions, Inc. in association with Sony Pictures Television, Inc. Emmy Award-nominated Michael Brandman ("The Heidi Chronicles" and "Into the Woods") and Tom Selleck are the executive producers; Emmy Award-nominated Steven Brandman ("The Heidi Chronicles") is the producer. Emmy Award-nominated Robert Harmon ("Ike: Countdown to D-Day" and "Gotti") is directing the drama from a script by John Fasano ("Saving Jessica Lynch").
