A veteran actress is joining the cast of ABC’s new drama series "Body of Proof," where she will play the mother of Dana Delany’s character, reports TV Guide.
Joanna Cassidy, who received Emmy nominations in drama for “Six Feet Under” and in comedy for “Buffalo Bill,” will take on the role of the mother of Dr. Megan Hunt.
The show’s creator, Christopher Murphey, told the publication, "I think Megan and her mother have a wonderful backstory that we will be basically mining over the first few episodes. You’re going to be finding out a lot about Megan."
"Body of Proof" premieres Friday, Sept. 24, at 9 p.m. ET on ABC.
