TNT Places Series Orders for Rizzoli & Isles and Delta Blues

TNT: We Know Drama

Last year, we reported that TNT had ordered a pilot for Rizzoli, a crime drama based on characters created by Tess Gerritsen, and a pilot for Delta, a crime drama featuring a Memphis cop who moonlights as an Elvis impersonator. Today, a TNT press release is reporting that the network has ordered a 10 episode (including the pilot) season of both series.

Both series have been renamed (Rizzoli & Isles and Delta Blues, respectively), but TNT notes these are still working titles.

About Rizzoli & Isles: Angie Harmon plays Jane Rizzoli, a Boston detective who works closely with medical examiner Maura Isles (Sasha Alexander) to solve crimes. “TNT is home to some of television’s most powerful female characters, and Rizzoli & Isles certainly fits that identity,” said Michael Wright, executive vice president, head of programming for TNT, TBS and Turner Classic Movies (TCM). “We’re delighted to be working with Angie, Sasha and the rest of the talented cast of Rizzoli & Isles as well as the show’s outstanding production team, as we bring Tess Gerritsen’s vision to television.”

About Delta Blues: Jason Lee plays Dwight Hendricks, a Memphis police officer who lives with his mother. His intimate connection with the city and its people sets him apart from his fellow officers. “With a collection of unique characters brought to life by a stunning cast, Delta Blues is truly a one-of-a-kind series,” said Wright.
