ABC to premiere ‘Body of Proof’ March 29 — but Europe gets it sooner

DanaD ABC just announced that it would premiere its Dana Delany medical examiner drama “Body of Proof” on March 29, with the show grabbing a Tuesday timeslot.

The series had originally been slotted for a fall premiere at 9 p.m. Fridays, but ABC held off after the rapid cancelation of Thursday freshman “My Generation” prompted a rethink of the schedule.
