LOS ANGELES, Jan. 22 (UPI) -- Hollywood actor Tom Selleck is set to star in a fifth installment of his popular "Jesse Stone" television movie series, CBS announced.

Co-starring Kathy Baker, Camryn Manheim and Joanna Miles, "Jesse Stone: Thin Ice" is scheduled to air March 1.

The "Jesse Stone" movies are based on the best-selling series of books by author Robert B. Parker.

In the upcoming episode, Selleck's character -- Paradise, Mass. Police Chief Jesse Stone -- finds himself in trouble with the town council when he inadvertently becomes involved in a shoot-out on a Boston street. His friend, State Homicide Commander Healy, who is played by Stephen McHattie, is seriously wounded and Jesse comes under investigation by the Boston Police Department's Internal Affairs Division, which causes him to be away from Paradise for extended periods of time.

Jesse further alienates the council by firing the Paradise Police Department's most prodigious ticket writer, resulting in a considerable loss of revenue for the town. Life for Jesse becomes even more complicated when he agrees to help a celebrated out-of-towner, who shows up in Paradise, searching for her missing child, CBS said in a release.

Selleck is best known for his portrayal of the title character in the popular 1980s TV detective series "Magnum, P.I."
