In a press release from a couple of weeks ago (that we obviously missed), CBS announced that the 6th Jesse Stone movie, No Remorse, will have its broadcast premiere on Sunday, May 9th, at 9 PM (ET/PT).
CBS has been frustratingly slow in scheduling these made-for-television movies, based on a character created by Robert B. Parker. No Remorse completed filming in November 2008, and the 7th in the series, Innocents Lost, was filmed last fall. The first five films have all been commercial and critical successes for the network, and are currently available on DVD from Mysteries on TV: Jesse Stone.
In No Remorse, Police Chief Jesse Stone (played brilliantly by Tom Selleck), who was suspended by the Paradise, Massachusetts Town Council, begins moonlighting for his friend, State Homicide Commander Healy (Stephen McHattie), by investigating a series of murders in Boston, leaving Rose Gammon (Kathy Baker) and Luther "Suitcase" Simpson (Kohl Sudduth) to handle a crime spree in Paradise on their own. Jesse pours his energy into his work in an effort to push away his twin demons: booze and women. When his investigation leads to notorious mob boss Gino Fish (William Sadler), Jesse's pursuit becomes hazardous. William Devane reprises his role as Jesse's psychiatrist, Dr. Dix, and Saul Rubinek returns as Hasty Hathaway, fresh from a stint in prison. Krista Allen joins the cast as Hathaway's ex-wife, Cissy, who never misses an opportunity to tell Jesse she's interested.
Tom Selleck received an Emmy nomination for his role in Sea Change, the 4th in the series.
No Remorse is not based on any specific Parker novel, but is an original screenplay co-written by Selleck.
