The CW is going all-doctor on Tuesdays, following “Hart of Dixie” with “Emily Owens, M.D.,” starring Mamie Gummer. The clip above makes the premise obvious: You can take a rivalry out of high school, but you can’t take high school out of a rivalry — you can just add life-or-death stakes to it all. (I dare say that one thought that crossed my mind was, “What if ‘Saved by the Bell: The Post-Grad Years’ were done as a drama?”)
Aja Naomi King will play Owens’ nemesis, Cassandra, while Justin Hartley plays heartthrob Will. Jennie Snyder Urman (“90210,” “Lipstick Jungle”) exec produces with Dan Jinks and Bharat Nalluri.
