Watch Body of Proof
- 3 Seasons
The ABC series Body of Proof debuted during the spring of 2011. The network brought the popular drama back the following fall, and the show is renewed for another year. The series stars actress Dana Delany as Dr. Megan Hunt. Dr. Hunt is a clever medical examiner who began her career as a premier neurosurgeon. A car accident changed her life as the aftermath caused her to inadvertently kill a patient during an operation. After the patient died, Megan resigned from neurosurgery and retired from operating. During the first episode, viewers discover that Dr. Megan Hunt is a medical examiner. She works with Peter Dunlop, who is her partner and a medical investigator. The pilot episode also introduces viewers to Dr. Kate Murphy, Megan's Chief Medical Examiner, Dr. Ethan Gross, a Pathology associate, and Detective Bud Morris. Dr. Hunt is difficult to work with, but uses her medical knowledge to effectively solve murder cases. The show also focuses on Megan's personal life as she tries to reconnect with her daughter, Lacey. In fact, Dr. Hunt struggles with all of her personal and professional relationships. In the fourth episode of Body of Proof, Megan agrees to let Lacey film her while she's at work for a homework assignment in a Social Studies class. After viewing her mother at work, Lacey discovers a new respect for Megan's abilities. During season two, Megan and Lacey improve their relationship while corpses continue to land on Megan's examining table. Dr. Hunt and her team must solve the deaths of a bride, the owner of an Italian restaurant and a stay-at-home dad. Later, in the season, the team deals with a deadly virus and a serial killer. The season ends with Megan holding her wounded and possibly dying ex-husband who saved her from an attack by a serial killer. The series has taken a different approach in the way Dr. Megan Hunt solves murders. The former surgeon uses her unique perspective along with her considerable medical connections to track down the deceased person's cause of death. Dr. Hunt's stubborn nature is an asset as she is determined to find out the reason behind each corpse's demise. With a strong cast that includes Jeri Ryan as Dr. Kate Murphy, actress Joanna Cassidy as Megan's mother and John Carroll Lynch, who plays detective Bud Morris, the show's talent is extensive and has kept its viewership high. The show's murder investigations are intriguing as is Megan's personal struggles.
