About the show: Meet the Beethoven of private pathologists... Set against the vibrant backdrop of one of the world's hottest cities - Miami - new medical procedural from executive producer Todd Harthan ("Psych," "Dominion"), ROSEWOOD is THE STORY of DR. BEAUMONT ROSEWOOD, JR. (Morris Chestnut, "Nurse Jackie," "The Best Man" franchise), the city's top private pathologist. Brilliant, cool with tons of charisma, 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. While she's impressed by Rosewood's incredible abilities, his constant optimism is more annoying than it is infectious. But somehow, week-to-week, this unlikely tag team will solve many crimes together. Joining ROSEWOOD in his practice are his sister and "toxicology queen," PIPPY (Gabrielle Dennis, "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 (Lorraine Toussaint, "Orange is the New Black"), is on the cusp of some major life changes that will affect her children profoundly.
A matriarch with a lot of strong opinions, Shirley holds family gatherings sacred and makes Rosewood's love life a regular topic of conversation. Rounding out the cast is Miami PD's CAPTAIN IRA HORNSTOCK (Domenick Lombardozzi, "The Wire") who is a great team leader but is terrible at managing his own life. Hornstock and ROSEWOOD have a complicated relationship: while he can't stand Rosewood's big personality and sunny disposition, he acknowledges Rosewood's stellar contributions to the department.
I am very grateful about the part that everyone took in Rosewood's journey, because everyone was truly an integral part; the writers who crafted great story-lines, the actors who brought these stories to life, the production crew who sustained the show's infrastructure, and the terrific fans who embraced this phenomenon and became just as much a part of Rosewood as anyone else. FOX provided a platform for a show that made strides in diversity and the images it projected, as all-inclusive. We were able to peer into the lives of characters who displayed their hopes, dreams, courage and fears. Rosewood also helped reinforce a newer definition of Family, as a group of people who most care for and support one another. The #Rosewood family, itself was an Extremely Special group of people who'll be friends forever. This is not only a part of the industry, it's a part of life. When one door closes, two more can open... Thank you all for your continued #onelove and support. See you back on the screen, soon. Big and Small. #PEACE - MC
