Scoop: PURE GENIUS on CBS - Thursday, January 12, 2017

“Touch and Go” – James and Zoe work to help a teenage girl (Jessica Garza) with a rare skin blistering disorder, employing radical treatments to heal her skin in time for her to attend her school prom. Also, as Louis Keating’s GSS condition gets worse, James is tempted to use his experimental cure to save him. And Malik is jealous over the special connection between James and Zoe, while Zoe awkwardly meets James’ new crush, Nina (Alexis Krause), on PURE GENIUS, Thursday, Jan. 12 (10:00-11:00 PM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network.

PURE GENIUS is a cutting-edge medical drama about a young Silicon Valley tech titan who enlists an exceptional veteran surgeon with a controversial past to run a state-of-the-art hospital with an ultramodern approach to medicine. Billionaire genius James Bell built Bunker Hill Hospital determined to revolutionize health care and treat the rarest and most challenging medical mysteries, at no charge. Bell persuades maverick surgeon Dr. Walter Wallace to be his Chief of Staff; Dr. Wallace believed medicine was a human endeavor, not technological, until a eureka moment at the hospital convinced him otherwise.

Bell’s team of trailblazers includes Dr. Zoe Brockett, an exceptional, fearlessly frank physician; Dr. Talaikha Channarayapatra, an idealistic, maddeningly literal neurosurgeon who believes the hospital is a beacon for change; Dr. Malik Verlaine, a former gangbanger now spearheading efforts to provide 24/7 health monitoring in poor neighborhoods via computer; Dr. Scott Strauss, an intense neurologist with an Ivy league pedigree; and Angie Cheng, an enthusiastic 3-D printer programming whiz. At Bunker Hill, Bell pairs the most brilliant minds in medicine with the most forward thinkers in technology and cuts bureaucracy out of the equation, all in the interest of saving lives, including his own.
