TNT Gives Series Order to Supernatural Drama With High-Powered Cast TVWeek
TNT announced today that it has greenlighted a supernatural drama series. The cable network announced a 10-episode order for "Proof," with a high-powered cast that includes Jennifer Beals and Matthew Modine.
Other cast members include Joe Morton ("Scandal," "Terminator 2: Judgment Day"), Callum Blue ("Dead Like Me," "Royal Pains"), Edi Gathegi ("X-Men: First Class," "Justified"), Annie Thurman ("The Hunger Games") and Sean Gleeson ("Doctors," "Cold Mountain").
Emmy winner Kyra Sedgwick is one of the show's executive producers, along with Rob Bragin ("Greek," "Murphy Brown"), who also wrote the pilot; Tom Jacobson; Jill Littman; and Emmy winner Alex Graves ("The West Wing," "Game of Thrones"), who also directed the pilot.
The show is set for a 2015 launch.
TNT says in its announcement: "In 'Proof,' Beals plays Dr. Carolyn Tyler, a brilliant surgeon with a caustic edge. Carolyn has suffered the recent, devastating loss of her teenage son, the breakup of her marriage to Dr. Len Barliss (Gleeson) and a growing estrangement from their daughter (Thurman). But Carolyn's own trauma hasn't deterred her from her charitable outreaches, which include helping disaster victims in far-flung trouble spots throughout the world.
"Despite her skeptical, hard-science attitude, Carolyn is persuaded by a cancer-stricken tech millionaire (Modine) to investigate cases of reincarnation, out-of-body experiences, hauntings and other supernatural phenomena. Her goal is to find verifiable proof to life’s greatest questions: Is death truly the end, or is there something else beyond?"
