TVLine Items: Jason Isaacs Is Sophia Bush's TV Dad, Elite Trailer and More

Jason Isaacs Good Sam

Sophia Bush, meet your small-screen dad: Jason Isaacs (The OA, Star Trek: Discovery) will play the Chicago P.D. vet’s father in the CBS medical drama pilot Good Sam, our sister site Deadline reports.

In the potential series, a talented yet stifled surgeon (Bush) embraces her leadership role after her renowned and pompous boss falls into a coma. When he awakens and wants to resume surgery, however, it falls to her to supervise this overbearing blowhard who never acknowledged her talents — and who also happens to be her father.

In addition to his many TV credits, which also include The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance, Awake and Brotherhood, Isaacs is known for portraying Lucius Malfoy in the Harry Potter film franchise.

To keep up with all of the 2020 pilots currently in contention at the broadcast networks, check out (and bookmark!) our handy Pilot Guide, which has been updated with Isaac’s casting.
