Posted: Updated:

Tom Selleck is hanging up his New York City Police Commissioner uniform on "Blue Bloods" to don a different look as super sleuth Jesse Stone in the eighth installment of the detective TV movie series, "Jesse Stone."

CBS will premiere "Jesse Stone: Benefit of the Doubt" on Sun., May 20 at 9 p.m. EST.

Selleck, who co-penned the screenplay with Michael Brandman, stars as the title character, Jesse Stone, who will find himself struggling to get his job back as the Paradise police chief, and he is forced to rely on his cop intuition to sort through a maze of misleading clues and hidden meanings as he attempts to solve a shocking and horrifying mob-related double homicide.

Kathy Baker, Kohl Sudduth, Stephen McHattie, William Devane, William Sadler, Gloria Reuben and Saul Rubinek will reprise their roles, while Robert Carradine and Jeff Geddis join the cast for the eighth film in the murder-mystery series.

The "Blue Bloods" star earned an Emmy nomination in 2007 for his work in "Jesse Stone: Sea Change."

"Blue Bloods" currently airs on Fridays at 10 p.m. EST on CBS. "Jesse Stone: Benefit of the Doubt" will premiere on Sun., May 20 at 9 p.m. EST on CBS.
