Life in the OR is challenging enough, but performing an operation with your surgically skilled father on the same team? That adds a whole new layer, as Dr. Sam Griffith (Sophia Bush) is about to learn. 

In Good Sam, Dr. Griffith is 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 is that the caustic and arrogant Dr. Rob "Griff" Griffith (Jason Isaacs) 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. 



Katie Wech, Jennie Snyder Urman, and Joanna Klein serve as Executive Producers for CBS Studios. Tamra Davis is an Executive Producer (pilot only) and directed the pilot from a script by Wech.
