Morris Chestnut Lands Lead Role in FOX Pilot “Rosewood”

FOX network has hit the jackpot with this upcoming Fall lineup. Taraji P. Henson and Terrence Howard on “Empire”, Meagan Good on Minority Report and now Morris Chestnut in “Rosewood”. Oh heart be still!

FOX has given a series order to the medical drama “Rosewood” which stars Morris Chestnut, and has set Wednesday nights at 8PM (right before “Empire”) as its time-slot.

In the show, Morris Chestnut plays the title character, Rosewood – as in Dr. Beaumont Rosewood – a gifted, charismatic pathologist, and the best at what he does in all of Miami (FL), 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.

The project hails from Todd Harthan, whose past TV credits include “Psych” and “Dominion.”

Who is tuning in to all FOX shows this Fall like me?

Beyond the words, lies a young woman... A young woman filled with drive, determination, pride, passion, and an insatiable hunger for more. A young woman who is a self-proclaimed artist, but not in the sense that she can paint a mural. She's a verbal artist who paints pictures with words. Her beauty is more than skin deep, it lies within the lines of her words. And she's making a name for herself as your new favorite writer.
