Kick-ass Angie Harmon is back in the game! After giving birth to her third child (who is almost 11 months now),  guest appearing in Samantha Who and also in Chuck (Chuck, when are you coming on TV???), she landed in the new female-cop series called “Rizzoli”. She will play the lead Boston detective, so after Women’s Murder Club’s unfortunate failure, we will get to see more of her.

“Harmon’s character, Jane Rizzoli, is based on the popular mystery novels by writer Tess Gerritsen. Rizzoli is a tough but sensitive Detective who works on her cases with fellow mystery solver Maura Isles, the resident medical examiner.”

And this is where Sasha Alexander comes in…remember her? She was Agent Caitlin “Kate” Todd on NCIS! Still doesn’t ring a bell? She was replaced by Ziva David (Cote de Pablo) just after the second season.

Michael Wright is the executive vice president and head of programming for TNT said:

“Angie Harmon is not only a terrific actress, but also a favorite of crime drama fans,” Wright said. “She will bring a combination of toughness and sensitivity to the challenging lead role. We’re thrilled to have Angie on board for what could be an outstanding addition to TNT’s collection of strong female characters.”

Let’s hope the pilot will be great  (it was written by Janet Tamaro (”Bones”) and will be directed by Michael M. Robin (executive producer of “The Closer”) and the series will be picked up!

By the way, did you see the cute Milk ad with her and her three children? 🙂
