Body of Proof is an American medical drama, crime procedural television series that premiered on March 29, 2011, on the ABC network, and aired until May 28, 2013. The series stars Dana Delany as Dr. Megan Hunt, a former brilliant neurosurgeon-turned-medical examiner who solves crimes with the help of her team.

Body of Proof follows Dr. Megan Hunt, a medical examiner who was once a top neurosurgeon until a car accident damaged her hand and halted her surgical career. Hunt, who is known for her unconventional methods of solving crimes, joins the medical examiner's office in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, after being fired from her surgical job. Hunt uses her medical expertise to solve complicated cases, working closely with detective Tommy Sullivan, played by Mark Valley.

The show's premise is a fascinating one, as it combines the traditional crime procedural with the medical drama elements, to create an original and highly entertaining series. The team that surrounds Megan Hunt adds a great deal of depth to the show, as each member of the team is unique and comes with their own set of skills to help solve the cases.

Jeri Ryan plays Dr. Kate Murphy, a medical examiner and Hunt's boss, who is initially skeptical of Hunt's unorthodox style but eventually comes to respect her and works alongside her on various cases. Geoffrey Arend plays Dr. Ethan Gross, a quirky and cynical forensic pathologist who provides comic relief with his dark humor. John Carroll Lynch portrays Detective Bud Morris, who works with Hunt and Sullivan to solve the crimes.

The series also tackles personal and emotional issues that the characters face, not just the cases they work on. For example, Hunt struggles with her relationship with her daughter Lacey, played by Mary Mouser, as she tries to balance her new job with her parental responsibilities. Meanwhile, Dr. Kate Murphy deals with her own personal demons, including her divorce and struggles with alcoholism.

Body of Proof's sets are remarkable and believable, featuring detailed autopsy rooms and examination areas, portraying the gritty reality of a medical examiner's office. The show's cinematography captures Philadelphia's unique skyline, adding to the overall quality of the show's production.

Throughout its three seasons, Body of Proof excelled at mixing different creative elements, including criminal investigations, medical examinations, and personal dramas, to create an engaging and entertaining series. The show's emphasis on teamwork, where each episode focuses on different members of the team, allowed the audience to get to know the characters in a more personal and meaningful way.

Body of Proof also featured many guest stars, including Sonja Sohn, Sam Robards, Robert Altman, and Jeffrey Nordling, among others, who added a depth of star power to this already dynamic series.

In conclusion, Body of Proof was an excellent medical drama that broke the mode with its unique approach to crime-solving. The series was a critical success, receiving positive reviews from audiences and critics alike, as well as an impressive viewership rating. Although the series was only on air for three seasons before its cancellation in 2013, the show remains a favorite of fans who appreciate its originality, tense thrillers, and the passionate performance of its talented cast.

Body of Proof is a series that is currently running and has 3 seasons (47 episodes). The series first aired on March 29, 2011.
