About EMILY OWENS MD
At long last, Emily Owens (Mamie Gummer, "The Good Wife") feels like she is an actual grown-up. She can finally put her high school days as the geeky-girl-with-flop-sweats behind her. She's graduated from medical school, and she's beginning an internship at Denver Memorial Hospital, where, not-so-coincidentally, her med-school crush Will Collins (Justin Hartley, "Smallville," "Passions") is also an intern.
So why does everyone keep warning Emily that the hospital is just like high school? She will soon finds out the hard way - her high school nemesis, the gorgeous, popular Cassandra Kopelson (newcomer Aja Naomi King), is also a new intern at Denver Memorial. Another fellow intern, Tyra Dupre (Kelly McCreary, "White Collar"), warns Emily that the cliques at the hospital are all too familiar: the jocks have become orthopedic surgeons; the mean Girls are in plastics; the rebels are in the ER, and Tyra has her own awkward place as the principal's kid - her father, Dr. Tim Dupre (Harry Lennix, "Ray"), is the chief resident. Tyra latches onto Emily as a new friend, and immediately begins confiding in her - the fact that Tyra is a lesbian, that she hasn't come out to her father, that she is interested in dating a certain nurse - nothing is too personal for Tyra to share with Emily.
