A show about two leading actresses always turns me into the hopeful yuri fangirl! Por ejemplo Zena the Warrior Princess! She and Gabrielle had a slight titillating romp when they shared a kiss! Ooohhh!
One of the TNT promos for Rizzoli and Isles is such a tease (for me at least) having the two women lie in a bed together. Judging from the preview videos out there, these two women have definite partneromance and work together almost like a married couple! Okay my hopeful yuri goggles are looking too far ahead since both roles are supposedly straight in the novels they are based from by Tess Gerritsen.
Check out the TNT promo vid and synopsis below. Airs on Monday July 12th!
RIZZOLI & ISLES follows Boston detective Jane Rizzoli (Harmon) and medical examiner Maura Isles (Sasha Alexander), complete opposites and good friends who solve crimes and bust some of Boston’s most notorious criminals. Growing up at opposite ends of the economic spectrum, the two remain strikingly different from one another in many ways.
Jane, the only female detective in Boston’s homicide division, is a tough and gutsy cop who doesn’t let her guard down (except with Maura), dodges her overprotective mother and is better at basketball than her brother. Maura, meanwhile, is usually more comfortable among the dead than the living. She is always impeccably dressed in designer duds with a steady, sometimes icy temperament. And she is working on curbing her tendency to diagnose the people she meets – including her first dates.
Jane and Maura often find themselves working together as both use their brilliant minds and expertise to figure out the “who done it” as well as the “how done it” of Boston’s most complex cases.
