Written by Katie Wech and directed by Tamra Davis, Good Sam centers on Sam (Bush), a talented yet stifled heart surgeon who embraces her leadership role after her renowned and pompous boss Dr. Rob “Griff” Griffith falls into a coma.

When he awakens and wants to resume surgery, however, it falls to her to supervise this overbearing blowhard who never acknowledged her talents — and also happens to be her father.

Costars include Edwin Hodge, Michael Stahl-David, Skye P. Marshall, Davi Santos, and Omar Maskati.

“What I love about how [executive producer] Jennie [Snyder Urman] and Katie have threaded the needle is that both [Sam and Griff] are right,” Bush shared during CBS’ winter TCA panel on Friday. “Both of these people have a reason to believe what they believe. And this central, at times David and Goliath, and at other times a gendered clashing of the rams highlights a generational shift between the history of the patriarchy and what might come forward if, I don’t know, more women were listened to? Or in positions of power, like Sam’s department or elected office.”

She continued, “All of those dynamics are being represented within a family drama. It feels real and it feels grounded. In all of the ways that Sam is an optimist, Griff has learned hard lessons and he’s pragmatic— perhaps to a fault. Each of them thinks the other person needs to be either less practical or less empathetic and neither of them is. Can they learn from each other as equals? We’ll see!”
