ABC has announced the premiere date of Body of Proof, the new one-hour drama starring Dana Delany (Desperate Housewives). The series will premiere Tuesday, March 29 at 10:01pm ET/PT on ABC following the 18-episode run of current timeslot holder, Detroit 1-8-7. The series will likely be after Dancing with the Stars: The Results, should that series remain in its 9pm hour for the spring edition.
Dr. Megan Hunt (Dana Delany) is a brilliant neurosurgeon whose world is turned upside down when an accident puts an end to her time in the operating room. In her new career as a Medical Examiner, she is determined to solve the puzzle of who or what has killed the victims. Along the way, Megan finds that their lives and the lessons they hold can be applied to her own personal journey of redemption and forgiveness.
Body of Proof stars Dana Delany as Dr. Megan Hunt, Jeri Ryan as Dr. Kate Murphy, John Carroll Lynch as Detective Bud Morris, Nicholas Bishop as Peter Dunlop, Sonja Sohn as Detective Samantha Baker, Geoffrey Arend as Dr. Ethan Gross and Windell D. Middlebrooks as Dr. Curtis Brumfield.
ABC mid-season series still left to be announced are Secret Millionaire (though unofficially Sundays at 8 starting March 6), Extreme Makeover: Weight Loss Edition, Shark Tank, Jamie Oliver's Food Revolution, Wife Swap, Mr. Sunshine and Happy Endings. The latter two are comedies, while the rest are reality entries. Shark Tank will likely return in March (perhaps after the runs of either Winter Wipeout or Supernanny). Extreme Makeover: Weight Loss Edition could also be for March or perhaps later. Wife Swap will likely be used in summer or May, like it was this year. Jamie Oliver's Food Revolution still hasn't begun production, but it is slated to begin in January, though the Los Angeles public schools are in a budget crisis and looks like will not let Jamie take over their schools. At earliest we won't see the new season of this series until late spring or even summer now. Stay with us for updates on these ABC mid-season series, as everything else (The Bachelor, V, Winter Wipeout, Off the Map are all beginning in January) is set.
