Jungle medicine. Map centers on three doctors, portrayed by Caroline Dhavernas, Zach Gilford and Mamie Gummer, who venture to South America to work at a clinic with less than hospitable surroundings and a natural lack of resources. "Here, it's 1952: You don't have high-tech, you don't have big pharma, you have your brain, you have your instincts," Dr. Ben (Martin Henderson) explains to the new doctors after he punches a guy in the face to act as anesthesia in the pilot's opening moments.

Grey's Anatomy Creator's 'Off the Map' Coming to ABC in January

Shonda Rhimes, the creator of  Grey's Anatomy  and Private Practice,  seems to really enjoy producing medical dramas. Her newest show,  Off the Map , will also be premiering on ABC and will be premiering on  Wednesday, January 12 at 10:00 p.m . A few people will remember that Wednesday night at 10:00 p.m. isn't a great slot, and certainly not for a new show.   I believe that  Eastwick  and  Ugly Betty  both didn't do well there .  Of course, I'm not suggesting the time slot was the only reason for their ratings.  I guess it's just difficult to premiere a mid-season show at 10:00 p.m.  On the other hand, this is a Shonda Rhimes show, and she certainly has a following of fans on this network.   Off the Map  isn't a spin-off of  Grey's Anatomy  or  Private Practice , but there are certainly people who like Rhimes' work and may tune in to see it here.

Which St. Elsewhere Doc is Heading to ABC's Off the Map?

Off the Map, ABC's new mid-season medical drama from Grey's Anatomy creator Shonda Rhimes (think Grey's in the jungle), has enlisted an alum from NBC's 1980s medical drama St. Elsewehere. Recycling crusader Ed Begley Jr., who starred as Elsewhere's Dr. Victor Ehrlich from 1982-88, will appear in the fifth episode as a dentist named Hank. When a dentist's chair arrives unexpectedly in the economically-deprived locale, what will the doctor's do? Figuring this is a Rhimes show, they'll probably have steamy sex in it. I'm just saying...
