NEW TV SERIES TO FILM ENTIRELY IN RI

The Rhode Island Film & TV Office is pleased to announce that a new television series, BODY OF PROOF (formerly BODY OF EVIDENCE), has been picked up for ABC’s fall primetime schedule and will start filming episodes for its first season throughout the Ocean State in July 2010. Pre-production will commence immediately in the Warwick offices. The ABC Studios original television pilot was filmed in Rhode Island earlier this year.

BODY OF PROOF is a procedural drama that centers on a brilliant and tenacious female medical examiner whose background as a neurosurgeon gives her a unique and refreshing crime-solving perspective at the ME’s office, one that often puts her at odds with just about everyone who crosses her path.

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. Christopher Murphey wrote the pilot, which was directed by Nelson McCormick. Murphey will serve as Executive Producer along with Matt Gross. Richard Heus is co-Executive producer.

Steven Feinberg, Executive Director of the Film & TV Office said, "We are extremely proud to announce this great news. ABC Studios has chosen our beautiful state as the base of operations to film their new network television series, which will premiere on Friday nights at 9PM. As a result, more jobs will be immediately available to our local crew and talent pool. The production will quickly feed new money into our state’s small businesses and help pump up Rhode Island’s economy. This is further proof that our Ocean State has the heart, resources and foresight to compete in even the most challenging of climates…and win."
