The headline of the press release says it all: Jesse Stone Leads CBS to Sunday Win in Viewers. From 9 to 11 PM, Jesse Stone: Thin Ice, starring Tom Selleck as the Paradise (MA) police chief, was first in households and viewers in the ratings.
The reason we think this is important: it may mean more movies are on the way, and that would be wonderful news. Selleck himself said he's "perfectly willing, for the record, to do 20 or 25 of these just because the character’s so much fun."
As we reported last November, the 6th movie in the series, Jesse Stone: No Remorse, wrapped up production in Nova Scotia. The story picks up where Jesse Stone: Thin Ice ended, with Jesse having been suspended by the Paradise town council and working for the state investigating a series of murders in Boston. Selleck co-wrote the script.
No air date for Jesse Stone: No Remorse has been set by CBS, but let's hope they don't make us wait another two years before it's shown.
Four previous movies in the series are currently on DVD, and are available from Mysteries on TV: Jesse Stone.
