About the Show
BONES, a darkly amusing procedural centers on Dr. TEMPERANCE BRENNAN (Emily Deschanel), a highly skilled forensic anthropologist who works at the Jeffersonian Institute in Washington, D.C. and writes novels on the side, and her partnership with FBI Special Agent SEELEY BOOTH (David Boreanaz) of the FBI's Homicide Investigations Unit.
When the standard methods of identifying a body are useless, law enforcement calls on Brennan for her uncanny ability to read clues left behind in the victim's bones. The combination of Booth's people-smarts and Brennan's scientific acumen makes them a formidable duo, both professionally and personally.
Aside from Booth, Brennan is most comfortable with her equally brilliant colleagues at the Jeffersonian's Medico-Legal Lab. ANGELA MONTENEGRO (Michaela Conlin), an artist who specializes in reconstructing facial features and crime scenes, is Brennan's best friend. Angela is married to and has a son with DR. JACK HODGINS (TJ Thyne), affectionately known as "the slime and bug guy," a conspiracy theorist and expert on insects, spores and minerals. Dr. CAMILLE "CAM" SAROYAN (Tamara Taylor), the street-smart and centered coroner, must wrangle all the geniuses under her purview. JAMES AUBREY (John Boyd) is a young, intrepid FBI agent with a voracious appetite for solving crime, junk food and career advancement.
