The network upfronts being held in New York have yielded good news for another Star Trek vet. Today ABC revealed their fall schedule and it includes Body of Proof, a new medical show featuring Star Trek Voyager’s Borg Babe Jeri Ryan. More details and cast photo below. [UPDATE: Video previews].
Jeri Ryan returns to TV in Body of Proof
Since her stint on Star Trek Voyager came to an end, Jeri Ryan has been pretty busy, including main cast roles on Boston Public and Shark, as well as recurring roles on a number of other series, including Leverage, The OC and Law & Order: SVU. And now Ryan returns in ABC’s new medical procedural, Body of Proof. The show stars Dana Delany (Desperate Housewives), with Ryan as part of the supporting cast. Body of Proof will air Fridays at 9:00 p.m. starting this fall.
Dr. Megan Hunt (Dana Delany) was in a class of her own, a brilliant neurosurgeon at the top of her game. But her world is turned upside down when a devastating car accident puts an end to her time in the operating room. Megan resumes her career as a medical examiner, determined to solve the puzzle of who or what killed the victims. Her 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’s discovering there’s a lot of work to do when it comes to dissecting her relationships with the living.
Dana Delany stars as Dr. Megan Hunt, Jeri Ryan as Dr. Kate Murphy, Geoffrey Arend as Dr. Elliot Gross, John Carroll Lynch as Detective Bud Morris, Windell Middlebrooks as Dr. Curtis Brumfield, Nic Bishop as Peter Dunlap and Sonja Sohn as Detective Samantha Baker.
