About the Show

Off the Map is an American medical drama television series created by Jenna Bans and set in a remote South American village, where seven doctors search for reasons that brought each of them to medicine, exploring how far one has to go in order to truly heal.

The series aired in the USA on ABC from 12 January to 6 April, 2011. There are 13 hour-long episodes in one season.

Off the Map premiered in South Africa on DStv's M-Net Series channel on Wednesday 21 September 2011, at 19h30. New episodes broadcast weekly.

Synopsis

Executive producers Shonda Rhimes and Betsy Beers and creator Jenna Bans 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.

Off the Map stars Jonathan Castellanos as Charlie, Valerie Cruz as Zitajalehrena Alvarez (Zee), Caroline Dhavernas as Lily Brenner, Jason George as Otis Cole, Zach Gilford as Tommy Fuller, Mamie Gummer as Mina Minard, Martin Henderson as Ben Keeton and Rachelle Lefevre as Ryan Clark.

Off the Map is executive-produced by Shonda Rhimes and Betsy Beers, Gretchen Berg, Aaron Harberts, and created/executive-produced by Jenna Bans.

The series, which was filmed entirely on location in Hawaii, is from ABC Studios.
