Body of Proof is an American medical drama television series created by Chris Murphey and produced by ABC Studios which focuses on Dr. Megan Hunt, a medical examiner, and her efforts to balance the demands of her professional life - dealing with solving cases and analyzing bodies - with her personal life, as she tries to reconnect with her estranged daughter.

As a Medical Examiner Megan applies her vast medical knowledge, keen instincts and variously charming and scalpel-like personality to the task of solving the medical mysteries of the dead and bringing the people responsible for their deaths to justice.

But that's only half the show.

On its surface Body of Proof is a close-ended procedural. Each week delivers on the promise of a smart mystery ingeniously solved. But at its core, each episode is really just an excuse to visit Megan and the rest of the cast of characters.

Megan is funny and charming but also impatient and driven. She can be abrasive one moment and achingly vulnerable the next. We may not be as smart as she is, but we're not as broken as she is either.

We will root for her as she takes on not only cops and killers each week but also the wreckage of her marriage and her estrangement from her young daughter Lacey.

And we will experience right along with Megan her faltering early steps in what will be a series-long quest to find love, happiness and self-knowledge, a quest for which she often seems completely unequipped, but a quest on which she has an unlikely group of helpers: the dead.

Death is a fact of life. The irony is, death has brought new life to Megan Hunt.

As she investigates what happened to her patients, their lives and the lessons they hold become a kind of bequest to Megan, to learn from and to apply to her own life, if she has the courage to do so.

It's one thing to want to change, it's quite another to make it happen.

The series is created by Christopher Murphey and executive-produced by Murphey, Matthew Gross and Evan Katz. Body of Proof is produced by Gross Entertainment and ABC Studios.
