As TNT’s Rizzoli & Isles heads into its final episodes, star Sasha Alexander is checking an item off her to-do list: She directed the August 15 installment of the crime drama. But while this is her first time helming an episode of TV, Alexander is no novice: “I graduated from film school at USC, in the directing program,” she says. “I have directed some short films; I’ve produced two features.”
In this episode, her character, Maura, and detective partner Jane (Angie Harmon) investigate the death of a forensic accountant and discover an elaborate Ponzi scheme. Here, Alexander shares photos from her big debut.
