Shadow and Act

Fox has picked up freshman series, “Rosewood,” the medical/police procedural starring Morris Chestnut, for a second season.

The series, which acts as a lead-in to Fox’s smash hit “Empire’s” on Wednesday nights, has held onto decent ratings – maybe thanks in part to “Empire” – posting a healthy debut, drawing around 7.5 million viewers. It’s premiere was Fox’s strongest new series debut performance this season, beating out both “Minority Report” and “Scream Queens” both of which were canceled.

Chestnut plays Dr. Beaumont Rosewood – a gifted, charismatic pathologist, based in  Miami. Who owns one of the most sophisticated, state-of-the-art independent labs in the country, and finds the secrets in corpses that others usually miss. Despite being constantly surrounded by death, Rosewood is obsessed with life and savors every moment. His eternal optimism frustrates the cynical female detective he often works with (played by Jaina Lee Ortiz), but she can’t argue with the results that his unique perspective provides.

Lorraine Toussaint plays Rosewood’s mother; and Nicole Ari Parker his girlfriend.

Domenick Lombardozzi, Anna Konkle and Gabrielle Dennis also star.
