Global has revealed premiere dates for two new dramas that should warm up your winter.
Canadian made and still filming in the Toronto area, Good Sam premieres Wednesday, Jan. 5 at 10 p.m. ET/PT.
Starring Sophia Bush (Chicago P.D.) and Jason Isaacs (Harry Potter), the series follows Dr. Samantha Griffith (Bush), the new top surgeon at Lakeshore Sentinel Hospital, a role she’s had ever since the legendary leader of the place – her father (Isaacs) – fell into a coma.
But complications have set in: Having recovered, the elder doc wants to resume his duties. The result is a clash of family wills between old guard and new methods in a life-and-death business.
Good Sam also stars Sky P. Marshall, Michael Stahl-David, Omar Maskati, Davi Santi and Yarine Pernia.
Women of the Movement
Historical drama Women of the Movement debuts Thursday, Jan. 6 at 8 p.m. ET/PT, and continues to air for three consecutive weeks.
The six episode limited series is based on the true story of Mamie Till-Mobley (Adrienne Warren), who in 1955 risked her life to find justice after her son Emmett (Cedric Joe) was brutally murdered in the Jim Crow South.
Unwilling to let Emmett’s murder disappear from the headlines, Mamie chose to bear her pain on the world’s stage, emerging as an activist for justice and igniting the civil rights movement as we know it today.
Women of the Movement also stars Timothy Hutton, Chris Coy, Carter Jenkins, Ray Fisher and Miles Fowler.
In addition to these new shows Global hits NCIS: Hawai’i and FBI: International, and #1 new comedy Ghosts, all return in January alongside new episodes of Global’s hit series including NCIS, NCIS: Los Angeles, FBI, FBI: Most Wanted, New Amsterdam, The Equalizer and more.
