In what is perhaps the least surprising mid-season timeslot scheduling news, ABC has announced that its mid-season drama Body Of Proof, starring Dana Delany, will take the Tuesday 10pm timeslot beginning March 29.
Currently, Detroit 1-8-7 has the Tuesday 10pm timeslot, but will have finished its 18 episode order by then, and will be headed off to Cancellville.
Here is the official ABC press release:
NEW ABC DRAMA “BODY OF PROOF” TO DEBUT TUESDAY, MARCH 29, 2011
