Plot

Following the death of her teenage son, a legal separation from her husband, and a rift with her daughter, Dr. Carolyn Tyler is persuaded by Ivan Turing, a tech inventor and billionaire with cancer, to investigate supernatural cases of reincarnation, near-death experiences, and hauntings, in hopes to find evidence that death is not final.[3]

Cast

  • Jennifer Beals as Dr. Carolyn "Cat" Tyler, a cardiac surgeon at Bay Vista Hospital in Seattle[4]
  • Matthew Modine as Ivan Turing: inventor billionaire stricken with cancer[4]
  • David Sutcliffe as Dr. Leonard "Len" Barliss: Carolyn's ex-husband and a pediatric surgeon at Bay Vista
  • Edi Gathegi as Dr. Zedan Badawi: a Kenyan intern at Bay Vista who assists Carolyn[4]
  • Joe Morton as Dr. Charles Richmond: hospital administrator at Bay Vista[4]
  • Caroline Rose Kaplan as Janel Ramsey: Ivan's assistant[4]
  • Callum Blue as Peter Van Owen: best-selling author who claims to be psychic[4]
  • Annie Thurman as Sophie Barliss: Carolyn and Len's teenage daughter[4]

Reception

Proof received mixed reviews. Review aggregator site, Metacritic, gave the first season a "mixed or average" score of 59 out of 100, based on 11 critics.[5] On another review aggregator site, Rotten Tomatoes, it held a 57% rating, based on 14 reviews, with an average score of 7.1/10. The consensus reads: "Proof's intriguing premise – and Jennifer Beals' strong starring performance – can't compensate for a lack of compelling stories."[6]

Brian Lowry of Variety said the show is exploring the mysteries of the afterlife in uninspiring and banal ways.[7] Keith Uhlich writing for The Hollywood Reporter said that on paper, the show sounds like disaster, but revealed to be a beguiling object.[8]

Carolyn Tyler is a strict cardiothoracic surgeon who, at times, brings people back from the brink of death. Ivan Turing, a terminally ill billionaire, offers her his $10 billion estate in exchange for evidence of what happens after death. He then recalls her most traumatic experiences: surviving a boat capsizing in Japan and the recent death of her teenage son. Carolyn then checks in on Lilly, a young girl in the hospital who spent five days in a coma. Lilly told her parents of spending those days in "the other place" and drew pictures of people she has never met before, including her grandfather. Later, Lilly undergoes surgery for a blood clot on her brain and, afterward when asked, tells Carolyn that "they" told her not to talk about the other place. Carolyn then commits to Ivan's research.
