"Well, I am a huge fan of Dana Delany. I love her," Lee said. "And I know as we go into the back half of the season, they're going to have more fun with her and really push some of the more edgy elements that she brought in in the early stages of it. It is a show that we would love to work long‑term. Our affiliates love it. Gives us great lead‑in. And we're huge fans of the showrunners and Dana. So I'm hoping that that works well and we can bring it back."
Of course, Mr. Lee was enthusiastic about everything during his press conference, even ABC's failed "Charlie's Angels" reboot, so it would be wise to take his upbeat response with a grain of salt. "Body of Proof" has been given ample opportunity to find an audience. If viewers don't respond in the weeks ahead -- leading to improved ratings -- don't be surprised if the show is cut loose come May.
