Pilot Scoop: Mamie Gummer Gets First Cut, Anthony Anderson Joins NBC Comedy and More
Mamie Gummer has landed a starring role in The CW’s medical drama pilot First Cut.
The actress — who’s currently recurring on The Good Wife – will play a new doctor who is glad to leave her nerdy past behind. Unfortunately, she discovers that life at the hospital is not that different from high school. Justin Hartley (Smallville) co-stars as a golden boy surgical intern.
Jennie Snyder Urman (90210, Gilmore Girls) penned the pilot with Dan Jinks (Pushing Diasies) exec producing.
Gummer previously starred as a doc on ABC’s short-lived Off the Map.
