TV show description:
Dr. Temperance “Bones” Brennan (Emily Deschanel) is a part-time novelist and a highly-skilled forensic anthropologist who works at the Jeffersonian Institute in Washington, DC.
When the standard methods of identifying a body aren’t enough, law enforcement agencies call on Brennan for her uncanny ability to read clues left behind in a victim’s bones. About the only one who can keep up with Brennan’s intelligence and laser focus is a member of the FBI’s Homicide unit, Special Agent Seeley Booth (David Boreanaz). A former sniper, street-smart Booth doesn’t trust scientists or their methods but eventually comes to respect Brennan’s abilities.
Brennan is most comfortable with her colleagues at Jefferson’s Medico-Legal Lab. Her team members include a bawdy facial reconstruction artist named Angela Montenegro (Michaela Conlin); a newbie forensic anthropologist and genius, the socially-awkward Dr. Zack Addy (Eric Millegan); an expert in insects, spores and minerals, conspiracy theorist Dr. Jack Hodgins (TJ Thyne); and a street-smart coroner, Dr. Camile “Cam” Saroyan (Tamara Taylor).
