MAMIE GUMMER STARS IN A NEW DRAMA ABOUT FIRST-YEAR SURGICAL INTERNS AND
THE INNER WORKINGS OF DENVER MEMORIAL HOSPTIAL — Recent medical school
graduate Emily Owens (Mamie Gummer) is now a first-year surgical intern
at Denver Memorial Hospital and she is ready to leave high school
persona of geeky-girl-with-flop-sweats behind her. But Emily quickly
realizes that a hospital is a lot like high school -- cliques and all --
when she is faced with her medical school crush Will Collins (Justin
Hartley) and high school nemesis Cassandra Kopelson (Aja Naomi King).
On top of that, Emily manages to get herself in some hot water with her
attending Dr. Gina Bandari (Necar Zadegan), as well as the nurses, on
her first day. Another fellow intern, Tyra Dupre (Kelly McCreary)
latches onto Emily as a new friend, and immediately begins confiding all
her personal information, including the fact that Tyra is a lesbian,
and that she hasn’t come out to her father, who happens to be the Chief
of Surgery, Dr. Dupre (guest star Harry Lennix). Emily is also getting
to know the slightly nerdy, but smart and handsome resident Dr. Micah
Barnes (Michael Rady), who is facing some serious medical issues within
his own family. Bharat Nalluri directed the episode written by creator
and executive producer Jennie Snyder Urman (Pilot).
Emily Owens M.D. Premieres On The CW October 16th at 9/8c.
