Written by Rob Bragin and directed by Alex Graves, Proof centers on Dr. Carolyn Tyler (Beals), a skeptical, hard-science, brilliant female surgeon with a caustic edge who has been struggling with the devastating loss of her teenage son and a growing estrangement from her surviving daughter. She is persuaded to investigate cases of reincarnation, out-of-body experiences, hauntings — all of it looking for verifiable proof to answer one of life’s greatest questions: Is death truly the end, or is there something else beyond? Sedgwick exec produces with Jill Littman, Tom Jacobson, Bragin and Graves. The L Word alumna Beals, repped by APA, Untitled and Patti Felker, also was pursued for broadcast pilots this season. She previously starred in Fox’s Chicago Code. She also co-created and is executive producing Laughs Unlimited, in development at HBO, with Oren Moverman, Tony Swofford, Lauren Schuler Doner and Adena Chawke. Read More »
