Here is more from THR
Picked up to pilot last month, Bunker Hill follows a young Silicon Valley tech titan who enlists a veteran surgeon with a controversial past in starting a hospital with a cutting-edge, “new school” approach to medicine. Prew will play the tech billionaire, James Bell. Described as having comet-like energy, James is relentless, unapologetic, maybe brilliant, maybe just nuts, but definitely magnetic and determined to revolutionize healthcare.
