When we graduate high school, one of the very best things about moving on is leaving behind all that drama. Sadly, once we become adults, we realize that the drama never really goes away, especially if you're a first year intern at Denver Memorial Hospital. Emily Barnes had hoped that once she began her internship at the prestigious hospital, her new life, free of drama, would begin. However, when she discovers that both her med school crush and high school nemesis are also in the program, Emily realizes that you never really do leave that drama behind.

About Mamie Gummer (Emily Owens):

When someone asks which actress is the greatest if our time, a few names come to mind and 9 times out of 10, one of those named will be Meryl Streep. Imagine wanting to be an actor and having the opportunity to learn from this incredible woman. Mamie Gummer happens to be the daughter of the Oscar-winning, legendary film actress and clearly, the talent lives on in this rising star. Mamie had a successful stage career (on and off Broadway) before breaking into television and films. Her film credits include The Hoax, Taking Woodstock, Stop-Loss. She also played the same role her mother once played in the films Evening and The House of the Spirits. She starred in the short-lived ABC medical drama Off the Map and had a recurring role in the hit CBS series The Good Wife.

About Justin Hartley (Will Collins):

Most will likely recognize Justin Hartley from his long-running role as Oliver Queen (a.k.a. the Green Arrow), which ran from 2006 through 2011 (72 episodes in all). Hartley got his start in the soap opera Passions, where he would meet his future wife, Lindsay (the two are no longer together). Aside from his success in Smallville, Justin also appeared in CSI: New York, Cold Case, Chuck, Gemini Division and Hart of Dixie. In addition to playing the Green Arrow, Justin also played Aquaman/Arthur Curry in the 2006 pilot Aquaman, which sadly never made it to the United States. His film credits include Red Canyon, Spring Breakdown, A Way With Murder and Scorpio Men on Prozac.

Michael Rady (Micah Barnes):

Michael Rady is relatively new to the acting world, his first role dating back to 2005, where is starred as Kostas in the popular teen movie The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants (as well as the sequel). He starred in the short-lived controversial drama Swingtown. He starred as Jonah Miller in the CW's reboot of Melrose Place and had recurring roles in Greek and The Mentalist.
