The Root Recommends: 'Body of Proof'

ABC's new medical drama is sure to cure your TV boredom.


Fans who miss Sonja Sohn's character on The Wire, Detective Kima Greggs, can catch her on ABC's new medical drama, Body of Proof.

The show follows the career of Dr. Megan Hunt (Dana Delaney), a neurosurgeon who is forced to change careers after a car accident renders her incapable of performing surgery. As a medical-mysteries investigator, Hunt uses her in-depth medical knowledge to solve homicides. Sohn, in a role that suits her, plays a smart homicide detective who values Hunt's input.

Jeri Ryan, Nicholas Bishop and John Carroll Lynch also star on the show, which airs Monday at 10 p.m. ET.

Previous recommendation: Mara Hruby.
