Grey's Anatomy for the 1980s
CBS had high hopes for this series. It was a drama about a group of young doctors dealing with their cases, their superiors, and each other in a busy large-city hospital. Starring Patricia Kalember, late of the soap opera Loving and before the prime-time soap opera Sisters, as the title character, the show had a by then de rigeur multicultural cast thrown together and the usual mixture of serious and amusing cases-of-the-week. If the elements of the show felt slapped together and the characters seemed more like a sampler of types rather than a realistic group of people, well, it wasn't the first time....shows like this had worked in the past and would work in the future. In fact, the entire description of the show (except for the star) sound exactly like Grey's Anatomy in 2005--and that show's a smash. It helps to have a good timeslot, I guess. Kay O'Brien, on the other hand, was gone before Thanksgiving (and 3 episodes never saw the light of day).
