Set your DVRs! The fifth Jesse Stone movie, Jesse Stone: Thin Ice, is scheduled to air this Sunday, March 1st, on CBS (9 PM ET).
Yesterday, CBS released the cast and production credits for the made-for-television movie. In addition to starring Tom Selleck as Jesse Stone, returning characters include Kathy Baker as Rose Gammon and Kohl Sudduth as Luther "Suitcase" Simpson. The movie was filmed in Halifax, Nova Scotia.
In a synopsis provided by the network, Paradise (Massachusetts) Police Chief Jesse Stone finds himself in trouble with the Town Council when he inadvertently becomes involved in a shoot-out on a Boston street. His friend, State Homicide Commander Healy, is seriously wounded and Jesse comes under investigation by the Boston Police Department's Internal Affairs Division, which causes him to be away from Paradise for extended periods of time.
Thin Ice is the fifth movie in this series of telemovies based on the character created by Robert B. Parker, but the first not to be adapted from on any of the existing mystery books. The previous four movies, all highly recommended by MBN, are available on DVD from Mysteries on TV: Jesse Stone.
A sixth movie, Jesse Stone: No Remorse, wrapped up production last November. No air date has been set.
