The CW is expanding its medical resume with a new dramedy from former Gilmore Girls co-producer Jennie Snyder Urman and Pushing Daisies’ Dan Jinks.
The CW hit a hot streak at the beginning of the season with new shows like Ringer and The Secret Circle, so we could see why they jumped on the pilot train with First Cut.
Does it read too close to the CW’s other medical show, Hart of Dixie? In a word, no.
Much like the network’s freshman series, Hart of Dixie, First Cut centers around a young female doctor, but that seems to be where the similarities end.
According to a report from TVLine, the official logline reads: “Glad to leave her nerdy past behind for a fresh start in the adult professional world, a newly minted doctor discovers that, sadly and comically, life at the hospital where she works is no different than high school.”
If you’ve been following Hart of Dixie, you know that Zoe Hart is a big city girl working as a small town doctor. The town she works in is as much a character as she is.
On the other hand, from the looks of First Cut‘s logline, we’ll get a first season Grey’s Anatomy feel with the CW’s staple humor mixed in — see, small town point of view vs. hospital point view — one is not like the other.
As for the captain of the new pilot, Jennie Snyder Urman’s other credits include Gilmore Girls, 90210 and Men in Trees.
Urman is responsible for writing First Cut and serves as executive producer with Dan Jinks whose credits include Pushing Daisies and Traveler.
We want to hear from you. Now that you’ve had a chance to settle into a comfortable rhythm with Hart of Dixie, will you make room for First Cut when it premieres?
