Fans hoping to see Jeri Ryan in the new medical mystery series Body of Proof will have to wait a while longer to see the former Seven-of-Nine.
Ryan will be playing Dr. Kate Murphy, who will be the boss of the main character Megan Hunt (Dana Delany). Hunt, once a neurosurgeon, has gone back to being a medical examiner in hopes of finding out who killed the victims in a car accident.
Body of Proof was due to air Fridays at 9 PM this fall on ABC, but will now air sometime at the midseason. The reasoning given for the move? ABC wants to give the medical series a chance in a better timeslot.
The move to mid-season gives ABC time to market the show. “& ABC has finally announced that they’ll hold Body of Proof 4 mid-season!” tweeted Ryan. “This means they can give us a real pr push for the premiere.”
