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).
  • Soon 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.
