TNT pilot Proof has turned the Level Five walkway of the Vancouver Public Library curtain wall into a hospital corridor at fictional Bay Vista Medical Center today. The scene: Surgeon Dr. Carolyn Tyler (Jennifer Beals) encounters a wheelchair-bound young patient in the corridor and walks back with her. Produced by Kyra Sedgewick, Proof is a supernatural medical drama about a doctor who’s asked to investigate cases of reincarnation and hauntings for proof. Despite her own recent bereavement she remains Scully-skeptical and reliant on hard science when it comes to answering the question — is there something beyond death?
Jennifer Beals and young guest star check their phones between camera setups.

Proof began filming on March 14th at UBC’s Life Sciences Centre, which is often used as a hospital set unlike the Vancouver Public Libary. and is expected to wrap this coming week.
