Good Question Helen - I’m not sure but I don’t think there is a delay. It is not like on-demand.

Here's a pilot script review (spoilers for the pilot).

The reviewer didn't seem too convinced.

Wow. She gave it a Pass. That is not convinced. Guess we won't be seeing Jason on our TVs this time. :bat

Hmm yet she said: FINAL RECOMMENDATION: Good Sam is a solid pilot script with a fair number of twists. The father-daughter relationship at its heart is compelling, and Sophia Bush and Jason Isaacs seem well cast. That said, it doesn't feel like it brings much new to the medical show genre overall, and feels far more soapy than we've come to expect from CBS. It's not clear to me where it could fit in their schedule.

I would not write it off yet. Really depends what CBS wants in their line up.

It also depends on how many openings there are in CBS's schedule. With Hawaii 5-0 ending its run on Friday night, that's not a good slot for a new show. Maybe his appearance on CBS All Access (ST:D) will show that he is a known and followed commodity. (Ouch. That sounds stark. :roll: )

I wonder if this will still go ahead now, with the corona situation. :scratch

I would assume, like with everything else, new shows and production start-dates of existing shows are on hold until the pandemic passes.

No matter how long it takes to get going again- TV Networks still need new shows in their pipeline. So I’m still hopeful (although not a huge fan of medical shows.)

I'm not sure. We'll have to wait and see. I think he mentioned in one of the latest interview that he was filming for 5 more weeks...?

First of all congratulations and it sounds like he is playing the Father/Surgeon character?. How does this usually work for Jason does the family all go over to the states or does he go for the filming. Must be tricky.

1. Yes, he plays the previously-comatose father/surgeon.

2. Whether or not he has to (or chooses to) relocate his family (Lily turned 19 in March; Ruby will be 16 in August) will probably depend on how the show does.
