Does President Barack Obama have something against 'Body of Proof'?
Probably not, but he has still affected the ABC series. The series was scheduled to return on Tuesday, February 12, but has been pushed back to accommodate the president's State of the Union address (which will be the first of his second term).
The delay is only a temporary one, though, as it will air in its normal time slot one week later, on February 19. This season, the third of the program, is an abbreviated one. It will be taking the time slot of 'Private Practice' when that show concludes on January 22.
When the procedural (which stars Dana Delany) returns to the air, expect some changes in how the show is presented, according to series executive producer Christopher Murphy.
"We're looking at every episode. Even though there's a serialized component, we wanted to look at them as separate movies," said Murphy, alluding to the adjusted format. "The stories are bigger, the stakes higher, it's more thrilling, it's more adventuresome."
Expect to see an increased focus on law enforcement in the new season, as well as two new cast members, as Mark Valley and Elyes Gabel join the drama.
