Making its debut tonight on THE CW, EMILY OWENS, M.D. is a hospital procedural that combines drama and comedy to present life in the medical field as an extension of high school culture. Created by JENNIE SNYDER URMAN (whose college roommate served as inspiration for the show), the cast includes MAMIE GUMMER (in the titular role), AJA NAOMI KING, JUSTIN HARTLEY and MICHAEL RADY.
No stranger to the arts (her parents are Academy Award-winner MERYL STREEP and sculptor DON GUMMER ), MAMIE GUMMER always knew she wanted a place in the spotlight. During the Television Critics Association press conference to introduce the series, GUMMER talked about when she first realized she wanted to act. (CLICK ON THE MEDIA BAR FOR AUDIO)
