About Rizzoli & Isles

Based on characters created by best-selling crime novelist Tess Gerritsen and developed for television by Janet Tamaro, Rizzoli & Isles stars Angie Harmon as Jane Rizzoli, a tough-as-nails Boston police detective, and Sasha Alexander as Maura Isles, a smart, impeccably dressed medical examiner from a privileged background. Despite being complete opposites, the two women share an offbeat chemistry and strong working relationship that has helped them bust some of Boston’s most notorious criminals.

  1. I for one, am all sorts of excited! :) I can't believe we as fans made something like this happen. LoL. Thanks to all the Rizzles Admins and Joy and everyone for making this a possibility.

  2. I'm so excited about this event!! :)

  3. even if im not able to go ,this is so important!thanks for making this possible,you are amazing:)

  4. I REALLY wish I could afford to go. Maybe, if this is successful, you'll think about trying to have one on the East coast? That would be much more affordable to me (and many others over here!)

    Please consider it. And thanks for putting this one together!

  5. Is there any possibility of an east coast Rizzles con?

  6. I agree. I'd like to see the next one on the East Coast.

  7. While I really enjoy the "relationship" between Jane and Maura, I honestly don't think the convention needs to have LGBT speakers and themes tied to it, especially given their relationship is up to everyone's interpretation. I'm as gay as they come, but I just don't think it should be included, just my honest opinion.

    I've been to 2 Xena conventions (their first and 2nd) and it was a horrible experience ruined by lesbians who asked personal and flat out rude questions of the cast and pushed their views onto everyone in attendance. I'd hate to see the same thing happen here and I can't help but feel like it's heading in that direction.
