ABC.COM IS "GOING VIRAL" WITH A SPECIAL "BODY OF PROOF" WEB SERIES
ABC.com is launching a five-part web series connecting the two "Body of Proof" episodes, "Going Viral, Parts 1 & 2," the first of which airs tonight, TUESDAY, MARCH 27 (10:01-11:00 p.m., ET). On the show the team faces a city-wide outbreak of an unknown virus and no one is safe - including Megan and her team.
The web series debuts on www.ABC.com/BodyofProof at 11:00 p.m., ET, immediately following "Going Viral, Part 1," and focuses on a press conference given by Dr. Kate Murphey (Jeri Ryan). During Kate's remarks, pandemonium breaks out, and a reporter in the room is introduced, Julie Tompkins (Jolie Jenkins). Over the course of the remaining web series, we follow Julie's personal experience with the virus and gain key insights into "Going Viral, Part 2," airing next week, TUESDAY, APRIL 3 (10:01-11:00 p.m., ET).
