'Tom Selleck' back on CBS as ‘Jesse Stone’ Dec. 27th


RBR/TVBR observation: Tom Selleck has aged gracefully and as ‘Jesse Stone’ brings a mix of a “Magnum PI” and a ‘Columbo’. Ok, this maybe a rebroadcast but it is worth a watch especially for Selleck fans, which we are at RBR-TVBR. 

Selleck is great on the large living room 52” screen and CBS should make more commitment to ‘Jesse Stone’ as a matter of fact CBS should block out the time to rebroadcast all five (5) installments of the ‘Jessie Stone’ franchise. This is worth a watch or better set the DVR.

Editor’s note: Selleck fans post comments below. What is your favorite ‘Tom Selleck’ role?
Ok we all love Magnum PI.  But we truly enjoy Selleck in westerns, like he is a ‘John (Duke) Wayne’ man; he rides tall in the saddle. One of our favorite westerns is: “Monte Walsh”.

Emmy and Golden Globe Award winner and Emmy nominee ‘Tom Selleck’ stars in “Jesse Stone: Thine ICE,” a television movie to be rebroadcast on Sunday, Dec. 27th.

JESSE STONE: THIN ICE, starring Emmy and Golden Globe Award winner Tom Selleck (“Magnum P.I.”) will be rebroadcast Sunday, Dec. 27 (8:00-10:00 PM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network. 

Selleck reprises his role as Jesse Stone in the fifth installment of the Jesse Stone franchise from Sony Pictures Television, which includes “Stone Cold,”  “Jesse Stone: Night Passage,” “Jesse Stone: Death in Paradise,” and “Jesse Stone: Sea Change,” the picture for which he received an Emmy Award nomination.  The movies are based on the best-selling series of books by Robert B. Parker.  (Originally broadcast 3/1/09) 

In JESSE STONE: THIN ICE, Paradise, Mass. Police Chief Jesse Stone finds himself in trouble with the Town Council when he inadvertently becomes involved in a shoot-out on a Boston street.   His friend, State Homicide Commander Healy, is seriously wounded and Jesse comes under investigation by the Boston Police Department’s Internal Affairs Division, which causes him to be away from Paradise for extended periods of time.  

Jesse further alienates the Council by firing the Paradise Police Department’s most prodigious ticket writer, resulting in a considerable loss of revenue for the town.  His issues with the Council are further exacerbated when a celebrated out-of-towner shows up in Paradise in search of her missing child, and Jesse agrees to take her case. His continued defiance of the Council’s wishes now begins to jeopardize his very job.

JESSE STONE: THIN ICE was produced by TWS Productions II and Brandman Productions, Inc. in association with Sony Pictures Television.  Emmy Award nominee Michael Brandman (“The Heidi Chronicles” and “Into the Woods”) and Tom Selleck are the executive producers; Emmy Award nominee Steven Brandman (“The Heidi Chronicles”) is the producer.  Emmy Award nominee Robert Harmon (“Ike: Countdown to D-Day” and “Gotti,” as well as the three previous Jesse Stone movies) directed from a script by Ronni Kern (“Helen of Troy”), Michael Brandman and Tom Selleck.
