Chicago P.D.'s Sophia Bush Stars In A New Medical Drama

Actress Sophia Bush has certainly taken on a range of roles over the years. From playing high school student turned fashion designer Brooke Davis on "One Tree Hill" to her recent role in the harrowing 2021 horror film "False Positive," Bush has proven time after time she's got serious acting chops. Her most notable role, though, would have to be on "Chicago P.D." as Detective Erin Lindsey. Bush was a series regular on Seasons 1 through 4, and she appeared on multiple episodes of "One Chicago" franchise shows "Chicago Med," "Chicago Fire," and "Chicago Justice." In 2017, Bush left the NBC series citing extreme working conditions. Although she was an integral character to "Chicago P.D.," it seems Bush is moving on to bigger and better things.

Soon, Bush will exchange her police badge for a stethoscope. She is set to star in a new medical drama for CBS titled "Good Sam" as the titular Dr. Samantha Griffith. There's no doubt that "Good Sam" will hope to reach the same status as medical drama hits like "Grey's Anatomy" and "The Good Doctor," but only time will tell how viewers react.

Sophia Bush plays a new lead surgeon in Good Sam

According to CBS, Sophia Bush stars as Dr. Samantha Griffith, a surgeon at the fictional Lakeshore Sentinel Hospital who lands a new leadership role from some circumstances surrounding the lead surgeon. Dr. Griffith becomes the new top surgeon only after the previous title-holder, who also happens to be her father, falls into a coma. Tensions rise between father and daughter when he comes out of the coma and wants his old position back but finds his daughter holding on to the role.

Set to star alongside Bush is Jason Isaacs, who will be playing Dr. Griffith's pompous father and former chief of surgery. Also set to appear in the series is Skye P. Marshall as Dr. Lex Trulie, Omar Maskati as Isan, and Michael Stahl-David as Caleb (via IMDb). A trailer for the upcoming series debuted earlier this year (via YouTube), teasing all of the dramatic subplots that will unfold over the course of Season 1. Fans of Bush are likely hoping this show turns out to be a hit as this will mark her next leading role since "Chicago P.D." Luckily, viewers don't have too much longer to wait as the series is set to premiere on January 5, 2022.
