When Body of Proof returns for its third season on Feb. 5, it sounds like medical examiner Megan Hunt may be trading in her lab coat for something much more — ahem — revealing.
"It's a little silly in the high heels, I have to admit. I feel like I should be wearing a catsuit or something," star Dana Delany said with a laugh of the new season's increased action sequences at ABC's winter TV preview Thursday.
