The basic concept of the show is James Bell, super mega rich white guy in San Francisco who was adopted (and yes, that’s supposed to make you think about Steve Jobs) and has a degenerative disease has created this cool place called “Bunker Hill” where they’re at the forefront of medicine. They also treat the hospital like a startup, where the ‘best idea wins.’
