Pure Genius is a medical drama that aired on CBS from 2016-2017. The show was created by Jason Katims and starred Dermot Mulroney as Dr. Walter Wallace, a brilliant and wealthy surgeon, and Augustus Prew as James Bell, a tech billionaire who has funded a cutting-edge hospital. Odette Annable co-starred as Dr. Zoe Brockett, a young and ambitious surgeon who joins the team at Bunker Hill Hospital.

The show is set in Silicon Valley and centers around the Bunker Hill Hospital, which is unlike any other hospital in the world. James Bell has equipped Bunker Hill with the latest in medical technology, including 3D printers that can create body parts and medical robots that can perform surgeries. The hospital’s mission is to tackle some of the most difficult medical cases in the world, and they have the resources to do so.

Dr. Bell brings Dr. Walter Wallace to Bunker Hill as the chief of staff, hoping that his medical expertise combined with James Bell’s technology will revolutionize healthcare. Dr. Wallace is a skilled surgeon, but he has a controversial history in the medical community. He has been accused of practicing medicine unethically, and he lost his license as a result.

Despite his past, Dr. Wallace is determined to make a difference at Bunker Hill. He quickly forms a bond with James Bell and they become close friends. Together, they work to solve some of the most difficult medical cases in the world, often against seemingly insurmountable odds.

One of the unique aspects of Pure Genius is the focus on technology in medicine. The show depicts a world where 3D printers can create organs and where medical robots can perform surgeries with extreme precision. The medical technology portrayed in the show may seem far-fetched, but it’s actually based on current and emerging technologies.

The show also deals with ethical issues in medicine. Dr. Wallace’s past mistakes make him a controversial figure, and the other doctors at Bunker Hill are often wary of him. There are also instances where the medical technology used at Bunker Hill is called into question, and the doctors must grapple with the ethical implications of their work.

Pure Genius is also a character-driven drama. The show explores the personal lives of the doctors at Bunker Hill, including their romances, family issues, and individual struggles. Dr. Zoe Brockett, in particular, is a compelling character. She is ambitious and driven to succeed, but she also struggles with doubt and insecurity.

Overall, Pure Genius is a thought-provoking medical drama that combines cutting-edge medical technology with ethical dilemmas and compelling characters. While the show only ran for one season, it has garnered a devoted fan following and is worth checking out for anyone interested in medical dramas or the intersection of technology and healthcare.

Pure Genius is a series that is currently running and has 1 seasons (13 episodes). The series first aired on October 27, 2016.
