‘Emily Owens, M.D.’ Star Mamie Gummer Compares The Show To ‘Ally McBeal’ [AUDIO]
Tonight at 9 The CW will premiere its new “medi-drama” Emily Owens, M.D with Mamie Gummer in the title role. The show draws parallels between high school and adult life with a hospital as its backdrop, which has drawn comparisons to Grey’s Anatomy. So, does Mamie feel that’s justified?
Here’s what she had to say: “I think that that’s inevitable. I think that every medical show now is just going to be compared to either ‘Scrubs‘ or ‘Grey’s Anatomy’ or ‘E.R.‘ I think that the spin that seems more fitting is maybe like an ‘Ally McBeal.”
