What is Good Sam about?

Good Sam is a medical that centres on Dr Sam Griffith, a talented healthcare professional who specialises in heart surgery at Lakeshore Sentinel Hospital. However, her work takes a sudden stressful turn, when her "pompous" boss, Dr Rob Griffith – who happens to be her father – falls into a coma.

Sam then steps up and finds herself flourishing as Chief of Surgery, but things get a little more complicated when her Dad wakes up and wants to return to work – meaning she'd be her father's superior. Sounds intriguing, right?

Leading the cast as Sam Griffith is Sophia Bush who viewers will recognise from her notable roles in titles such as One Tree Hill and Chicago P.D. The 39-year-old actress is also famed for her work in films including John Tucker Must Die and Incredibles 2.

Playing opposite Sophia as her father Rob is Jason Isaacs. British actor Jason, 58, is perhaps best-known for his long-running turn as Lucius Malfoy in the Harry Potter film franchise, but his success doesn't stop there. He's also known for movie roles in The Patriot, Black Hawk Down and The Death of Stalin. Jason is also known for appearing in Netflix show The OA.

As well as the two leading stars, the rest of the cast is impressive, too. Also appearing in Good Sam is Skye P. Marshall, Michael Stahl-David, David Santos and Omar Maskati.
