WORLD-RENOWNED FORENSIC ANTHROPOLOGIST
DR. TEMPERANCE BRENNAN LENDS HER EXPERTISE
TO HELP THE FBI SOLVE CRIMES
ON THE SERIES PREMIERE OF "BONES"
FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 16, ON FOX
From executive producers Barry Josephson and Hart Hanson comes BONES, an investigative drama inspired by real-life forensic anthropologist and best-selling novelist Kathy Reichs. Dr. Temperance Brennan is a highly skilled forensic anthropologist in Washington, DC. FBI Agent Seeley Booth calls on her to assist with investigations when the standard methods of identifying a body are useless � when the remains are badly decomposed, burned or destroyed beyond recognition. In the season premiere, Booth asks Brennan to help provide clues and information when skeletal remains are found at the bottom of a lake. With her team of specialists at the Jeffersonian Institute, Brennan determines the identity of the remains to be the ex-aide of a Washington, DC, congressman. A series of clues add up to murder, and Brennan wants in on the case. Although skeptical of all scientists, or "squints" as he calls them, Booth knows if he wants Brennan's expertise on the case, he's going to have to give in to her demand to a partnership with him and let her out of the lab. But Brennan may have gotten more than she bargained for when she digs under the surface to uncover who was behind the murder in the "Pilot" episode of BONES encoring Friday, Sept. 16 (8:00-9:00 PM ET/PT) on FOX.
