ABC Hopes Audience Interest in Doctors Is Infinite, Picks Up Shows About Them


ABC has picked up two new doctor dramas to go with the two they already have. Off the Map, about three docs working in a tropical clinic, comes from doctor-drama auteur Shonda Rhimes, the creator of Grey’s Anatomy and Private Practice, and, awesomely, co-stars Caroline Dhavernas, the protagonist of the short lived quirk-fest Wonderfalls. ABC has also picked up Body of Proof, a doctor-ish procedural drama, starring Dana Delaney as a crime-solving, abrasive medical examiner who was once a neurosurgeon. So, like, if House were on CSI and was less of a jerk.
