TNT Greenlights Supernatural Drama "Proof," Starring Jennifer Beals

New Series from Executive Producer Kyra Sedgwick Also Stars Matthew Modine and Joe Morton

TNT has greenlit the supernatural drama Proof, starring Jennifer Beals (The L Word, Flashdance), Matthew Modine (And the Band Played On, Weeds) and Joe Morton (Scandal, Terminator 2: Judgment Day). Also starring in the series are Callum Blue (Dead Like Me, Royal Pains), Edi Gathegi (X-Men: First Class, Justified), Annie Thurman (The Hunger Games), Sean Gleeson (Doctors, Cold Mountain) and newcomer Caroline Rose Kaplan.

Proof is being executive-produced by Emmy(R) winner Kyra Sedgwick (The Closer); Rob Bragin (Greek, Murphy Brown), who wrote the pilot; Tom Jacobson; Jill Littman; and Emmy winner Alex Graves (The West Wing, Game of Thrones), who directed the pilot. TNT has ordered 10 episodes of Proof, with plans to launch the series in 2015.

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?

Helping - or sometimes hindering - Carolyn in her quest are her boss, Dr. Charles Russell (Morton), the head of the hospital, and Peter Van Owen (Blue), a best-selling author who claims to be psychic. Gathegi plays Zed, a hospital intern from the Sudan who assists Carolyn, and Kaplan plays Janel Ramsey, Turing's assistant.

"Proof is a fascinating series that takes on one of our most compelling questions: What happens when we die?" said Michael Wright, president, head of programming for TNT, TBS and Turner Classic Movies (TCM). "Jennifer Beals does a terrific job bringing her complex character to life, and she's surrounded by an outstanding ensemble cast. We're especially thrilled to be collaborating once again with Kyra Sedgwick, whose work on The Closer helped pave the way for TNT's ever-growing slate of hit original series."
