Dana Delany is back as Medical Examiner Megan Hunt for a final season of the crime drama Body of Proof . which ends on a high note story-wise and even introduces much needed new characters and format to the series. Still grounded in the .murder of the week. formula, this female Quincy features the same kind of tongue-in-cheek approach to murder and crime as ABC.s Castle or TNT.s The Closer. It isn.t a realistic approach to murder, but it is entertaining. Created by Christopher Murphey (who wrote the screenplay for the 2010 remake of The Karate Kid), the series (which has been described as Quincy with better legs) continues to find its strength in the ensemble cast approach »

With January behind us, I shook out my notebook and found Jake Johnson’s hints that people wanted a Jess/Nick coupling New Girl... Netflix’s new all-episodes-now approach to House of Cards... some tweaking for Body of Proof... and good news for Cinemax’s action drama, Banshee.

Ray Richmond is contributing to Deadline’s TCA coverage.
