The CW, that inexhaustible source of dubiously acted teen dramas, has green-lighted HMS, a new medical drama about Harvard Medical School which is supposed to “put a younger twist on ‘Grey’s Anatomy.’” And! As if this description isn’t! Exciting! Enough! Hayden Panettiere of Heroes is signed on as a producer for the show.
So, what could they possibly include in this show? We’ve come up with a few plot ideas:
- Racy student-professor affair ends in a stormy breakup causing the student to miss the Longwood Medical Shuttle. Unforgivable.
- Lack of money causes an HMS postdoc to have to TF for Harvard College students. After the fifth pre-med comes in to complain about his test grade (but I say this with the greatest affection for pre-meds! You’re all great people!), the hapless TF threatens to overdose on Valium.
- Multiple relationships are destroyed because everyone is too busy studying. Okay, probably not. After all, since when do people actually do work on TV?
Clearly, the head writer Amy Jones should hire us to help write her script.
