The protagonist of Rosewood, Dr. Beaumont Rosewood Jr. (Morris Chestnut), is a pathologist working with the Miami PD. He’s successful, handsome, and single. But there is a catch: he has two holes in his heart and has about ten years left to live. Is it Rosewood’s health condition that keeps him from getting emotionally attached to a woman? That might explain why he’s not in a committed relationship and why he hasn’t brought his current lady friend Dr. Kat Crawford to meet his mother, Donna (Lorraine Toussaint). P.S. Kat is the therapist of Rosewood’s partner, Detective Villa (Jaina Lee Ortz).
Kat is portrayed by Nicole Ari Parker. She’s best known for her roles in the films Boogie Nights, Soul Food, and Remember the Titans. Parker is also known for her TV roles on Murder in the First (D.A. Jacqueline Perez), Revolution (Secretary Justine Allenford), and Second Time Around (Ryan Muse), which also starred her husband Boris Kodjoe. Rosewood airs Wednesdays at 8pm on Fox.
