TNT has found the lead actress for their upcoming drama pilot Proof, which is executive produced by former The Closer star Kyra Sedgwick.
Per Deadline, Jennifer Beals has nabbed the lead role in the pilot, playing the part of Dr Kathryn Russo. If picked up to series, Proof would mark the first series regular role for Beals since she toplined The Chicago Code, which lasted only one season on Fox in 2011. Her other television credits include The L Word, The Mob Doctor and Castle.
Proof follows a brilliant surgeon (Beals) who, following the death of her teenage son, begins investigating supernatural cases, including those of hauntings and reincarnation, in search of proof that death is not the end. The script was written by Rob Bragin, who serves as an executive producer alongside Sedgwick, Jill Littman and Tom Jacobson. The West Wing‘s Alex Graves is attached to direct.
