In the November 29th episode of ABC's BODY OF PROOF entitled "Gross Anatomy", a murdered young woman's body turns up in place of a medical school cadaver during class, leaving Megan to rely on the aid of the star student to help solve the case.
BODY OF PROOF debuted last season to critical acclaim for Dana Delany and the rest of its talented cast, as well as for the show's taut writing, and it finished the season as TV's most-watched new series of 2010-11. In fact, it is ABC's most-watched series in the time slot in 10 years.
Brilliant and driven neurosurgeon Dr. Megan Hunt had it all, or so she thought. As the first female Head of Neurosurgery at a prominent Philadelphia university hospital, she never appreciated how the demands of her profession were taking a toll on her personal life until her husband divorced her and she lost custody of their then seven-year-old daughter. Still reeling from this emotional trauma, Megan soon suffered a physical one, a car accident that left her with a condition called paresthesia -- random attacks of numbness and cramping of her hands. Tragically, this condition failed to manifest itself until Megan's first trip back to the operating room. She lost control of her instruments and her patient died on the table. Megan's life as a neurosurgeon was over.
Five years later Megan has found a new life as a Medical Examiner. Although she's no longer in the business of fixing what's wrong with living patients, she's still instinctively drawn to finding out what killed her dead patients and uncovering who was responsible and why. As she pursues the answers, the bodies of the dead provide the clues. The body is, in effect, the proof. And with her unique blend of smarts, instinct and a warehouse of medical knowledge, she can read a body like nobody else.
BODY OF PROOF stars Dana Delany as Dr. Megan Hunt, Jeri Ryan as Dr. Kate Murphey, John Carroll Lynch as Detective Bud Morris, Nicholas Bishop as Peter Dunlop, Sonja Sohn as Detective Samantha Baker, Geoffrey Arend as Dr. Ethan Gross, Windell D. Middlebrooks as Dr. Curtis Brumfield and Mary Mouser as Lacey Fleming.
The show airs Tuesdays at 10:00 pm/et on the ABC network.
