“We are extremely proud of our BONES app,” said Hart Hanson, creator and executive producer of BONES. “We can finally say, ‘There’s an app for that’ when people bring up BONES at parties. Also, it will help my rage issues when I see people gazing at their smartphones or tablets in vehicles or while walking down the street because I will say to myself, ‘They are checking out the BONES app and loving it.”
In the all-new “The Daredevil in the Mold” episode of BONES, a BMX rider’s remains are discovered on the roof of a warehouse after a failed bike stunt. While BOOTH (David Boreanaz) and Brennan interrogate the victim’s fellow riders, the team works to identify the numerous fractures in the victim’s skeletal structure recreates the series of events that led to the fatal accident. Meanwhile, Sweets turns to Booth for relationship advice, and Booth makes a key decision about his relationship.
Currently in its sixth season, BONES is a darkly amusing procedural centered on a highly skilled forensic anthropologist whose expertise lies in her uncanny ability to read clues left behind in the victim’s bones. The series stars Emily Deschanel, David Boreanaz, TJ Thyne, Michaela Conlin, Tamara Taylor and John Francis Daley.
BONES is from Far Field Productions and Josephson Entertainment in association with 20th Century Fox Television. The series was created by Hart Hanson. Hanson, Stephen Nathan, Ian Toynton and Barry Josephson are executive producers.
