Body of Proof will soon make like Law & Order, ripping a fictional case straight from the controversial headlines.
Entertainment Weekly reports that the January 3 episode of this ABC drama will center around a Casey Anthony-like figure named Hillary Stone, a woman acquitted for killing her son.
“This is an important case to us because we don’t do a ton of ripped of the headlines cases,” says producer Sunil Nayar. “But it became this sensational case nationwide. There were very human elements. [In our episode] we explore what happens when the media takes over a case."
Yes, there will be media involved, specifically Marcia Gay Harden in the role of someone who sounds an awful lot like Nancy Grace. Moreover, Rita Wilson will guest star as Stone's mother.
