ABC has picked up the Grey’s Anatomy and Private Practice boss’ latest medical-themed drama, Off the Map, for fall. Additionally, the Alphabet network has ordered to series Body of Proof, a crime procedural starring former Desperate Housewives star Dana Delany.
Map — starring Without a Trace grad Enrique Murciano, current Grey’s doc Jason George, Wonderfalls‘ Caroline Dhavernas, and Rhimes fave Martin Henderson — centers on a team of medical professionals who flee the U.S. to work at a clinic on a tropical island. Jenna Bans penned the script and Betsy Beers is exec-producing alongside Rhimes. Body, meanwhile, centers on a brilliant and tenacious medical examiner (Delany) whose background as a neurosurgeon gives her a unique and refreshing crime-solving perspective at the ME’s office — one that often puts her at odds with just about everyone who crosses her path.
Map and Body join previously announced ABC pickups Detroit 187, No Ordinary Family, Generation Y, The Whole Truth, Mr. Sunshine, Better Together, and Happy Endings.
