Megan resumes her career as a medical examiner determined to solve the puzzle of who or what killed the victims. Megan’s instincts are sharp, but she’s developed a reputation for graying the lines of where her job ends and where the police department’s begins. It turns out her career isn’t the only thing that will need to be rebuilt; Megan’s family has taken a backseat to her ambition, and now she’ll discover there’s a lot of work to do when it comes to dissecting her relationships with the living.

    I can’t wait. Dana Delany is great in everything she does, so I expect it’ll be a very interesting, thought-provoking, non-fluff kind of show.

      What were the TV execs thinking by putting the season premiere of Body of Proof in the same time slot up against two of TV’s best shows – The Good Wife and Parenthood – as I can only DVR 2 shows at one time?

      I guess their goal is to get the show cancelled before it even has a chance. Oh well!
