Air Dates, Titles & Descriptions for 'Body of Proof' 2x15 and 2x16

At last! We have air date confirmations for the first two of Jamie's guest appearances on Body of Proof; we know he filmed at least one more episode, presumably that'll air in March. The creative team (while all lovely people) have also been very cagey about revealing whether Jamie came back to shoot any of the additional episodes that the network ordered late last year, but... they're all writers on the show, it's their job to be cagey. ;) 

Anyway, without further adieu, here's the info; the promotional photos for 2x14 were released this week, so fingers crossed we might get episode stills next week!

UPDATE: And ABC Medianet have just posted the stills for these two episodes and... Jamie's not in a single one of them. AT ALL. Sorry, I know I'm biased and all but... what the frak? That makes ZERO sense. It's more excusable that he wasn't featured in stills for the last two guest starring roles he did, having seen those episodes now... but this time we know he's got a) a multi-episode arc and b) his character is getting it on with the lead!!! Dumbfounded. Way to low-ball interest in your sweeps episodes, ABC.

  • "BODY OF PROOF" -- "Occupational Hazards" - After a car accident reveals a dead body in the trunk, the team is led to another body, leaving them with two cases to solve, while Megan is reconnected with an old acquaintance and Kate's job is threatened, on "Body of Proof," TUESDAY, FEBRUARY 21 (10:00-11:00 p.m., ET).

Jamie Bamber Cast in TNT's "Chelsea General"

Via Deadline.com, Jamie has just been cast in David E. Kelley's TNT medical drama, "Chelsea General". More from the site:

Based on CNN chief medical correspondent Dr. Sanjay Gupta’s upcoming novel Monday Mornings, the project follows the lives of five surgeons as they push the limits of their abilities and confront their personal and professional failings. Bamber will play one of them, Dr. Tyler Wilson, supernova vascular neurosurgeon who has a fling with a fellow neurosurgeon (Jennifer Finnigan). Kelley and Gupta, who is a practicing neurosurgeon, are executive producing the pilot; Kelley’s frequent collaborator Bill D’Elia is set to direct.

The very good news: the pilot is for TNT, which picks up the majority of their pilots to series. The network is willing to nurture a series that isn't exactly a ratings blockbuster (See: Southland). And cable networks, unlike the broadcast networks, won't air all the episodes they've ordered. Also, TNT must have liked what they saw in Perception. :)

On the possibly negative side: David E Kelley. Some of his work is better than others. But Sanjay Gupta's involvement makes me think they will be aiming for realism that has been lacking in some of Kelley's previous shows.

Bottom line......time to celebrate! Oh, and Jamie, Tricia and Mary all have shows in development at TNT right now? Someone is a BSG fan!

ETA: We have our first (slightly spoilery) look at the pilot script. The Hollywood exec (if you believe his blog title :), lived it and loved Jamie's character, Ty. Most importantly, it looks like he'll get the opportunity to play another flawed, complicated character. Woo!
