Good Sam is a new medical drama fronted by Sophia Bush.
It’s already challenging performing heart surgery but doing the operation alongside your sarcastic father, who’s also your boss, makes it even tougher. However, when her father falls into a coma, Sam takes on his job as Chief of Surgery.
While her dad remains in a coma, Sam blossoms into her new role. However, her father then wakes up and wants his old job back!
Good Sam: Cast and Plot!
“Good Sam” has quite the talented cast. Of course, Bush, who many know from her time on “One Tree Hill” and “Chicago P.D.”, is starring as a gifted surgeon, Dr. Samantha Griffith, who is trying to finally get out of her fellow surgeon father’s shadow. The father in question, Dr. Paul “Griff” Griffith, is played by Jason Isaacs, who played Lucius Malfoy in the “Harry Potter” film series and starred in other TV shows like “The OA.” Griff is an egotistical doctor with old school views, who commonly clashes with his daughter as they are forced to work together.
Good Sam focuses on Dr. Griffith (Sophia Bush), a talented heart surgeon who shines as the new Chief of Surgery after her esteemed boss and father, Dr. Rob “Griff” Griffith (Jason Isaacs) falls into a coma.
However, when he wakes up months later, he demands his original job back. He forced Sam to supervise the self-centered specialist who never recognized her expertise and talent.
It makes matters more complicated that he is also her father and constantly defies and challenges Sam’s authority and medical expertise.
