‘Emily Owens, M.D.’ Premiere Photos: Get An Early Look At Emily’s First Day

If you’ve been dying to get a better look at Emily Owens, M.D. then you are in luck. The CW has released a series of photos from the pilot episode of their latest quirky medical drama. The series stars Mamie Gummer, daughter of Oscar Award-winning actress Meryl Streep, as Emily Owens, a young doctor who is fresh out of medical school and about to discover that hospital politics aren’t as far removed from high school politics as she thought.

In the pilot, Emily will be eager to redefine her geeky image now that she is starting her career as a first-year medical intern, but that won’t be easy to do with former high school mean girl (and Emily’s longtime adversary) Cassandra Kopelson (Aja Naomi King) stalking the halls. Cassandra isn’t the only person from Emily’s past at the hospital: her crush from medical school Will Collins (Justin Hartley) is now her co-worker as well. Having her crush and her nemesis around will complicate her first day on the job, but so will ticking off her attending, Dr. Gina Bandari (Necar Zadegan).

There are a couple of bright spots though: Emily will gain a new friend in her fellow intern, Tyra Dupre (Kelly McCreary), who just so happens to be the daughter of the Chief of Surgery Dr. Dupre (guest star Harry Lennix), and she’ll become better acquainted with the nerdy, but hot resident Dr. Micah Barnes (Michael Rady).

Check out the gallery below for a closer look at the characters and then catch the series premiere of Emily Owens, M.D. Oct. 16 at 9:00 p.m. EST on The CW.
