September is a major month. The world’s largest fashion shows take the big stage during the same month our favorite televisions shows take the small screen. It’s no secret Empire is one of the most highly anticipated dramas returning to television. But right before Empire, FOX has granted us yet another television show to get our adrenaline pumping (to which I had the honor of attending the first episode sneak peek).
The very dreamy Morris Chestnut makes his return to network television to play Dr. Beaumont Rosewood, Jr.,Miami’s very intelligent and suave medical professional dubbed the Beethoven of private pathologists. If you love a brilliant murder mystery with twists and turns in the plot, you’ll enjoy the series from the very first episode (and it helps that Chestnut gives us eye candy all the way through). In the series, Rosewood teams up with the tough-as-nails Detective Annalise Villa (Jaina Lee Ortiz, “The After”), to uncover clues no one else sees and help the Miami PD solve the city’s most challenging cases. You can guess early on that she may be his love interest throughout the series.
Joining Rosewood in his practice are his sister and “toxicology queen,” Pippy (Gabrielle Dennis, the one who stole Derwin’s heart and became the mother of his child in “The Game”); and DNA specialist Tara Milly Izikoff aka TMI (Anna Konkle, “Man Seeking Woman,” “Betas”), who is Pippy’s fiancée. Rosewood’s mom, DONNA is television veteran Lorraine Toussaint, whom you know from “Orange is the New Black”).
Oh, did I mention Rosewood has his shirt off in the very first scene? The show will have you hooked from the opening credits.
Check out the official trailer below. Rosewood debuts on FOX this Wednesday, September 23 and 8 p.m. Follow the series on Twitter and join the discussion using #Rosewood.
