Stars of "Off the Map"
Executive producers Shonda Rhimes and Betsy Beers ("Grey's Anatomy," "Private Practice") and creator Jenna Bans ("Grey's Anatomy") bring to viewers an uplifting medical drama that explores how far one has to go in order to truly heal.
Welcome to "la ciudad de las estrellas" (the city of stars), a tiny town in the South American jungle which has one understaffed, under-stocked medical clinic. That's where idealistic young Dr. Lily Brenner just landed, along with fellow doctors Mina Minard and Tommy Fuller. All of these young doctors are running away from personal demons, but they aren't the only ones with emotional baggage. Take the legendary and enigmatic Ben Keeton, who was the youngest Chief of Surgery at UCLA. He walked away from it all to found the clinic. Together with his right-hand doctor, Otis Cole, the mysterious Dr. Ryan Clark and local doctor Zita Alvarez, he'll teach the newcomers how to save lives in the most challenging environment they've ever worked in -- while taking them on adventures of a lifetime.
In this ensemble drama, six doctors who have lost their way will go to the ends of the earth to try to remember the reasons why they wanted to become doctors in the first place.
We talked with two of the stars Martin Henderson and Jason George. "Off the Map" premieres Wednesday at 10:00 pm on KATU.
