EMMY AND GOLDEN GLOBE AWARD WINNER TOM SELLECK STARS IN "JESSE STONE: NIGHT PASSAGE," A NEW TELEVISION MOVIE TO BE BROADCAST JAN. 15 ON THE CBS TELEVISION NETWORK

"Jesse Stone: Night Passage" Is The Prequel To Last Year's "Stone Cold" Also Starring Selleck

Stephen Baldwin and Stephanie March Also Star

JESSE STONE: NIGHT PASSAGE, starring Emmy and Golden Globe Award winner Tom Selleck ("Magnum P.I."), will be broadcast as the "CBS Sunday Movie," Sunday, Jan. 15 (9:00-11:00 PM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network. Selleck reprises his role as Jesse Stone in the prequel to last year's high-rated movie "Stone Cold." The movies are based on the best-selling series of books by Robert B. Parker. Stephen Baldwin ("Fallacy") and Stephanie March ("Law & Order: SVU") also star.

JESSE STONE: NIGHT PASSAGE reveals how Stone (Selleck) became the Police Chief of the small fishing town of Paradise, Mass. after being fired from the Los Angeles Police Department. An unlikely candidate, Stone is recruited by Paradise's board of selectmen in the hopes that the failed cop won't dig too deeply into the town's dirty secrets. Within moments of being hired and still drunk from the night before, Stone must investigate a domestic violence situation involving Joe Genest (Stephen Baldwin), Paradise's resident hothead, whose ties to a local bank manager, Hasty Hathaway (Saul Rubinek), expose a money laundering scheme.

Polly Shannon reprises her role as City Attorney Abby Taylor and Stephen McHattie reprises his role as Captain Healy. Viola Davis, Vito Rezza and Kohl Sudduth reprise their roles as the staff of inexperienced police officers Stone inherits with his new job. Stephanie March joins the cast as Cissy Hathaway, the attractive wife of the town's most powerful man, who has eyes for Jesse Stone.
