Mysteries on TV: Thin Ice, a Jesse Stone Mystery, Airs Tonight on CBS

Jesse Stone: Thin Ice (CBS)

This evening, Sunday December 27th, Tom Selleck reprises his role as Jesse Stone in the fifth installment of the Jesse Stone franchise Thin Ice on CBS. The made-for-television movie is based on the best-selling series of books by Robert B. Parker, and originally aired in March 2009.

In Jesse Stone: Thin Ice, Paradise (MA) 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. Jesse further alienates the Council by firing the Paradise Police Department's most prodigious ticket writer, resulting in a considerable loss of revenue for the town. His issues with the Council are further exacerbated when a celebrated out-of-towner shows up in Paradise in search of her missing child, and Jesse agrees to take her case. His continued defiance of the Council's wishes now begins to jeopardize his very job.

The sixth film of the series, No Remorse, was completed in November 2008, but (to the frustration of the series fans) CBS has yet to schedule an air date. The seventh in the series, Innocents Lost, wrapped up filming in Nova Scotia last month and is presumably currently in post-production.

The first five movies are available on DVD from Mysteries on TV: Jesse Stone.
