A high-tech medical drama about attempting the impossible.
James Bell is a billionaire tech genius who has decided to put his money to good purpose, creating a hospital where the latest technological wonders are put at the service of medicine, allowing virtual miracles of healing. Bell recruits pioneering physician Dr. Walter Wallace to lead his medical staff; but the two soon come into conflict – Bell is impatient with Wallace’s cautious approach to innovation, while Wallace distrusts Bell’s reliance on technology rather than sound medical protocol.
The first episode contained little content of concern; some graphic (though not very bloody) surgery is shown, involving open-heart surgery and the removal of a pregnant woman’s baby from her womb. Language was mild, and there were no references to sex in the first episode.
Pure Genius is a traditional “disease-of-the-week” medical drama with a science-fiction twist, involving the use of almost unbelievable technologies. While free of offensive content, the program may not be of interest to children.
Pure Genius premieres Thursday, October 27 at 10:00 p.m. ET on CBS.
