“Benzodiazepine & the Benjamins” (02/17/17) – The hunt for a counterfeit currency kingpin allows the team to get a glimpse into Villa’s past. Meanwhile, Rosie receives surprising news about his recent health issue in an all-new episode of “Rosewood” airing Friday, Feb. 17 (8:00-9:00 PM ET/PT) on FOX. (ROS-216) (TV-14 D, L, S, V)
Guest starring in this episode are Sam Huntington as Mitchie Mendelson, Dawn Olivieri as Agent Harrows, Felisha Terrell as Erin Given, Aaron Himelstein as Pete Harmon, Jean Paul San Pedro as Jude Manifort, Andy Milder as Howard Godfrey, Thom Rivera as Mayer Monteverde, Orson Chaplin as Victor Jones, Adam Butterfield as Bobby Gabootz, Jumard Clinton as Barista, and Martin Papazian as EMT.
From executive producer Todd Harthan, medical procedural “Rosewood” enters its second season, as it continues to follow Dr. Beaumont Rosewood, Jr. (Morris Chestnut), Miami’s top private pathologist. Brilliant, cool and with tons of charisma, Rosewood works alongside tough-as-nails Detective Annalise Villa (Jaina Lee Ortiz), to uncover clues that no one else sees, and help the Miami PD solve its most challenging cases.
Joining Rosewood in his practice are his sister and “toxicology queen,” Pippy (Gabrielle Dennis); and DNA specialist Tara Milly Izikoff aka TMI (Anna Konkle), who is Pippy’s former fiancée. Rosewood’s mom, Donna (Lorraine Toussaint), retired from her high school principal position, divorced her husband and joined her children in the lab as a sometimes-overly involved co-worker.
Rounding out the cast is Detective Ira Hornstock (Domenick Lombardozzi), who is a great team leader but is terrible at managing his own life, and East Miami Police’s newest member, Captain Ryan Slade (Eddie Cibrian, “Baby Daddy,” “CSI: Miami”), a man with a mysterious past, who will both challenge and complicate an already messy situation between Rosewood and Villa.
Plagued with his own set of medical ailments, Rosewood believes that every moment of life, no matter how small, should be embraced and lived to the fullest. This heightened awareness allows him to see details on bodies that others cannot. But what drives him most are the victims who are stripped of life’s moments.
As Season One came to a close, the decks were cleared for Rosie and Villa to finally act on their feelings. Rosie stumbled on some information that forced him to embark on his own private investigation without Villa, and what he found could change their relationship forever.
This season, Rosewood and Villa go to New York City to solve the murder of her husband, Eddie, and will take on cases involving college fraternities, plastic surgery, treasure-hunting and Santeria.
“Rosewood” is produced by Temple Hill, in association with 20th Century Fox Television. The series was created by Todd Harthan. The series is executive-produced by Harthan, Wyck Godfrey, Marty Bowen, Andy Berman and Daran Sarafian.
