Rizzoli & Isles Spoilers

ImageFrom TVLine.com:

I love the dynamic between Rizzoli & Isles' Jane and Casey. Can you please give us some info on what's going to happen to them? –Tracie

The June 25 season premiere has a scene (or several) to make you smile... followed by one that will furrow your brow, as it does Jane's, when Casey reveals a new itinerary. "Trying to work out whatever it is [they have] — Jane's not really ready to settle down, and he kind of is — is incredibly difficult to do while he’s back in Afghanistan," says Angie Harmon. As for the new season a whole, the actress enthuses, "We've gone back a bit towards the pilot, as far as going more dramatic. The playful banter is still there, but the cases are a lot more serious — which I’m excited about."

Rizzoli & Isles Spoilers

ImageFrom TV Guide Mega Buzz:

What's Jane's history with the new guy on Rizzoli & Isles? — Rebecca
ADAM: You won't have to wait very long to find out. All will be explained via flashback in the new season's second episode, when Lt. Det. Rafael Martinez (Amaury Nolasco), the new head of the Boston PD drug unit, arrives. The case-of-the-week involves the drowning of Martinez's confidential informant. The ordeal brings back painful memories of a case Jane was involved in nearly a decade earlier. Let's just say she clearly understands what Martinez is going through.

Returning Summer Shows: Where We Left Off

ImageRizzoli & Isles (TNT)
Premieres: Tuesday, June 25 at 9/8c

Where We Left Off: A building collapses, trapping Frost, Tommy and baby T.J., and Jane and Maura go in to rescue them despite warnings that the structure will collapse more. Everyone makes it out alive, after which Maura tells her birth mother Hope that she's changed her mind and will donate her kidney to her ill half-sister Cailin on the condition that they don't tell her.

What's Next: Prison Break's Amaury Nolasco will recur as Lt. Det. Rafael Martinez, the newly appointed head of the Boston Police Department's drug unit who has a personal and professional history with Jane. Meanwhile, Maura and Cailin start to bond so much that the teen ends up staying with Maura. Oh, and remember Paddy Doyle's little black book from last season? It'll come into play when Jane has to testify against Doyle. It turns out Doyle once worked as an informant for Cavanaugh.

Working Women On Television: A Mixed Bag At Best

Image

When actress Geena Davis was watching children's shows with her daughter a few years ago, she became so troubled by the lack of female representation, she started a think tank on gender in the media. The Geena Davis Institute recently partnered with University of California, Los Angeles, professors to conduct a study analyzing gender roles and jobs on screen.

The good news? Prime-time television's pretty decent at depicting women with careers.

"We looked at something like 11,000-plus speaking characters," Davis tells NPR. The study showed that 44.3 percent of women characters in prime-time television are gainfully employed. That's respectably close to the real-life figure of 46.7 percent. And it's vastly better than children's entertainment — meaning shows and family films — in which a grossly disproportionate 81 percent of the jobs are held by men.

Television today teems with women characters holding jobs of the sort a young girl — or boy — might aspire to. Think of all the women lawyers, doctors and detectives on procedurals, like Law and Order: Special Victims Unit. Or the wisecracking female neurobiologist on The Big Bang Theory. Or Leslie Knope, the earnest small-town city councilwoman on Parks And Recreation, whose political ambitions lie short of nothing but the presidency.

As it happens, Geena Davis actually played the president of the United States on the short-lived 2005 ABC series Commander in Chief. These are the sort of female characters Davis hopes girls will see on TV, and aspire, eventually, to be.

But there's one problem, says Jennifer Newsom, who directed the 2011 documentary Miss Representation about women in the media. She points out that almost none of those characters have children. Nor do the career-obsessed heroines of her two favorite shows, Homeland and Scandal.

"Let's just forget the working mother," Newsom grouses. "Despite the fact that, of working women, 60 percent are working mothers." As part of her research, Newsom asked a Hollywood executive about this vexing absence of working moms on TV. The response, she says, was along the lines of, "Well, you know, our focus study group, they weren't comfortable with the mother [character] working so hard and blah, blah, blah."

Truth be told, it can be uncomfortable to watch a character like Nurse Jackie, a working mom, over 40, struggle on her series to hold her life, job and family together. Newsom says Nurse Jackie is even more of an outlier.

"Forty and older are actually 47 percent of our population here in the U.S., yet only 26 percent of women on TV," she observes. Of course, 40 and older in the real world tends to describe the ages of CEOs, high-level politicians and people who've poured decades into building distinguished careers.

According to the Geena Davis Institute, prime-time programs show women running companies 14 percent of the time. In real life, it's 25 percent. Glenn Close played such a character in the TV show Damages, about a woman in charge of her own high-powered law firm. Damages originally aired on FX. Its president, John Landgraf, admits the channel is mainly known for its compelling male anti-heroes.

"Frankly, the reason I mistakenly passed on Breaking Bad was that at the time, we had The Shield, Nip/Tuck and Rescue Me," he says. "And I was like, 'Well, are we going to have four shows with white male anti-heroes on the air? Is that really the whole of our brand?' "

Landgraf wanted powerful female anti-heroes anchoring their own shows. So not only did he greenlight Damages, but Dirt, a short-lived series starring Courtney Cox as the editor-in-chief of a sleazy tabloid. Neither show exactly found a Breaking Bad-like fan following.

"And it's fascinating to me," Landgraf adds, "that we just have really different, and I think, a more rigorous set of standards for female characters than we do for male characters in this society. It's much harder to buy acceptance of a female anti-hero."

Tell it to showrunner Janet Tamaro. She created Rizzoli and Isles on TNT, about a female detective and a female medical examiner that starts its fourth season in June. "I got a lot of a resistance when I wanted to write a scene with the two women in conflict," she recalls. "From both male and female executives, and everyone was squeamish about it — 'Oh no, no, no, we don't want to see women fight.' "

But Tamaro prevailed, and she scripted a spirited argument between her two leads that lasts until a colleague refers to their "cat fight," prompting them to turn on him. "Did you really just call a disagreement between two female colleagues a cat fight?" Rizzoli demands.

There's another place to look on television for strong depictions of working women, according to Geena Davis. "The most gender-balanced sector of television shows is reality shows," she says.

Look past the parade of housewives, bachelorettes and dance moms, and you'll see women flipping houses on HGTV, designing high-end suits on Project Runway, or running restaurants, like Robbie Montgomery on Welcome to Sweetie Pie's. The success of reality programs like these proves that showing women working really works. For everyone.

TNT and TBS to Become First National Entertainment Networks To Offer Live Streaming 24/7

Live Stream of TBS and TNT Feeds to Start This Summer!

TBS and TNT are about to become the first national entertainment networks in the industry to stream on-air content live across multiple platforms 24/7, including through the networks’ websites and a pair of newly created Watch TNT and Watch TBS apps. The announcement was made during TNT and TBS’s annual Upfront presentation today in New York. Live streaming is the latest phase in the rollout of TV Everywhere, the industry-wide initiative that gives subscribers to cable, satellite and telco video services access to more of their favorite shows across a wide range of digital platforms.

“Starting this summer, subscribers will be able to watch TBS and TNT live – anytime, anywhere, on multiple devices,” Steve Koonin, president of Turner Entertainment Networks, told the Upfront audience. “Tablets and smartphones become television sets, bringing new opportunities for us and for advertisers.”

TNT and TBS will begin their live streaming just as both networks are in the midst of the their summer programming, which for TNT includes returning series Rizzoli & Isles, Falling Skies, Major Crimes, Perception, Franklin & Bash and newcomers King & Maxwell, The Hero, 72 Hours and Cold Justice. TBS’s summer lineup includes the second season of the hit sitcom Sullivan & Son and the new series Deon Cole’s Black Box, and Deal With It. Also available through live streaming will be TNT’s award-winning coverage of the NBA, including the regular season, playoffs and All-Star Weekend; TBS’s regular-season and playoff coverage of Major League Baseball; and both network’s coverage of the NCAA Division I Men’s Basketball Championship.

The TNT and TBS live streams will be available through http://www.tntdrama.com and http://www.tbs.com, as well as through the networks’ newly created iPhone/iPad apps, with additional platforms added by the end of the year. The free Watch TNT and Watch TBS apps will be made available just prior to the live-streaming launch. To watch the live streams, viewers will be required to log in using their cable/satellite-provider account information.

Complete details about TNT and TBS’s live streaming plans, including the launch date, will be announced in the coming weeks.

Detective Jane Rizzoli (Angie Harmon), Rizzoli & Isles

Jane Rizzoli may not have Maura Isle's schmancy designer wardrobe, but it's not like she needs it. The ultimate crime-fighting tomboy is all about taking names — namely Charles Hoyt's — in whatever fits. However, can you really dress down Harmon's smokin'-hot looks? Or buy that Jane was "Roly-Poly Rizzoli" back in the day?
