TV show description:
Emily Owens (Mamie Gummer) thought that she was done with the world of high school. After all, she graduated years ago and has now finished medical school as well. Unfortunately, her years as a geeky girl have come back to haunt her.

Emily is beginning an internship at Denver Memorial Hospital, a facility where her med-school crush Will Collins (Justin Hartley) is also an interning. Unfortunately, her high school nemesis, gorgeous and popular Cassandra Kopelson (Aja Naomi King), is also interning at Denver Memorial as well.

Another intern, Tyra Dupre (Kelly McCreary), warns Emily that the cliques at the hospital are all too familiar: the jocks have become orthopedic surgeons; the mean girls are in plastic surgery; and the rebels are in the ER. Tyra has her own awkward place as “the principal’s kid” since her father, Doctor Tim Dupre (Harry Lennix), is the chief resident. Tyra latches onto Emily as a new friend, and immediately begins confiding in her. Nothing is too personal to share with Emily — Tyra is a lesbian, that she hasn’t come out to her father yet and she’s interested in dating a certain nurse.

Emily soon realizes that the long-standing rivalry she had with Cassandra back in high school is only going to grow. Both Emily and Cassandra are competing to impress brilliant Doctor Gina Bandari (Necar Zadegan), a world-famous cardiothoracic surgeon who’s been an inspiration and role model to both of them for years.

While Emily and Cassandra vie for Doctor Bandari’s approval, they’re also competing for Will’s attention. Handsome Will and Emily were friends in medical school but Emily was always hoping for more. Will has made it clear that he likes their relationship the way it is — as just friends. Emily struggles to convince herself that being friends with Will is enough, but it bothers her to see Will and Cassandra even talking with one another.

Meanwhile, Emily is also getting to know Doctor Micah Barnes (Michael Rady), a nerdy yet smart and handsome resident. Micah is faced with serious medical issues within his own family, and Emily’s compassion proves an invaluable help. Impressed with Emily’s medical skills and warm bedside manner, Micah brings her in on a delicate surgery and talks her through the procedure, boosting her confidence and bringing them closer — both professionally and personally.

With the long hours, the heavy workload, and personal drama filling her first days as an intern, Emily still fees like she’s the new geeky kid all over again. It’s just as awkward as high school. Somehow however, she’s sure that she can make it.

Series Finale

Episode #13 — “Emily and… the Leap”
Emily’s decision about starting a relationship with Micah becomes even more complicated when Will hears about it and begins to feel jealous. Emily and Tyra treat an unruly woman, but after learning of her home hoarding situation, Emily wonders if the woman’s personality changes may be caused by her many cats. Now that Cassandra and Will have broken up, Cassandra’s strictly professional behavior distracts Will and causes him to misdiagnose their patient. Meanwhile, Micah’s sister comes to town after finding out the truth about their mother.
First aired: February 5, 2013

I’m so disappointed this show is being canceled. It is much more entertaining & realistic then NewGirl or MindyKaling.

I really like this show. It is nice tohave a show that I can actually watch with my teen grand daughter and not worry that it is going to be X rated. It is light hearted and funny and really shows how girl (women) being mean can be hurtful. This is a valuable lesson in today’s world to the younger people who may be watching.

Horrible…. Es una serie bastante entretenida, con situaciones que a veces a los adultos nos cuesta aceptar, y la actuación de Mamie Gummer EXCELENTE!!!! Digna hija de su madre…. Bueno, para mi es lamentable.

I’m so sad! This is an excellently written show which manages to walk the difficult line between comedy and drama successfully. I love Emily and Will, Dr. Bandari (who didn’t cheer when she threw away Manuel’s chart!) and Tyra, and the complexity of the characters, especially Cassandra. It’s one of the most intelligent shows on TV and it’s really a loss not have it picked up! PLEASE BRING IT BACK! It’s must-see TV and there’s precious little of that around!

Hi, I never thought of the abrupt cancellation of the series. Honestly,
our family watched all the episodes. Its for the family, we like the
character of Emily – very simple and straight forward girl.
I hope this series should be renewed. We loved it.!!
More Power!!!!

It is hard to find any current shows that cross into so many areas (i.e. some drama, comedy) without losing focus.
