TV show description:
This medical drama follows what happens when top medical professionals team up with cutting-edge tech experts as they try to push the boundaries of modern medicine and find revolutionary ways to save lives.
Doctor Walter Wallace (Dermot Mulroney) is a disgraced but brilliant surgeon who is recruited by a young Silicon Valley tech billionaire, James Bell (Augustus Prew). Bell builds the ultimate cutting-edge hospital, Bunker Hill, that treats only the most rare and insurmountable medical mysteries — at no cost to the patient.
Wallace soon learns that Bell is harboring a secret, and the good doctor begins to question just what the young founder is really trying to achieve.
Also on the team are Doctor Zoe Brockett (Odette Annable), Doctor Talaikha Channarayapatra (Reshma Shetty), Doctor Malik Verlaine (Aaron Jennings), Doctor Scott Strauss (Ward Horton), and Angie Cheng (Brenda Song).
Episode #13 — Lift Me Up
Angie tries to target her mother’s illness using radical nanobot technology, but she looks to Scott for help when her mother prefers using traditional methods. Also, when a graffiti artist with a clotting disorder falls from a bridge, Walter, Malik and Zoe attempt to use suspended animation to stop his internal bleeding. And Walter is put in an awkward position when Julianna discovers James used the unapproved GSS drug on Louis Keating.
First aired: January 26, 2017.
