Sophia Bush stars in new medical drama ‘Good Sam’ on CBS

CHARLOTTE, N.C. (QC Life) - Good Sam stars Sophia Bush and Jason Isaacs in a drama about Dr. Sam Griffith, a gifted heart surgeon who excels in her new leadership role as chief of surgery after her renowned boss falls into a coma.

When her former boss wakes up months later demanding to resume his duties, Sam is tasked with supervising this egotistical expert with a scalpel who never acknowledged her stellar talent.

Complicating matters, the caustic and arrogant Dr. Rob “Griff” Griffith also happens to be her father. As Griff defies Sam’s authority and challenges her medical expertise, the big question becomes whether this father and daughter will ever be able to mend their own relationship as expertly as they heal the hearts of their patients.

Sophia Bush has starred in a range of TV shows and films, including “One Tree Hill”, “John Tucker Must Die” and “Love, Victor”. She joined QC@3 to talk about her new role as Dr. Sam Griffith.

The CBS Original series premieres Wednesday, January 5, 10-11PM ET/PT & available to stream live & on demand on Paramount +.
