CBS's newest TV series Pure Genius is not your average medical drama. The show centers on a young Silicon Valley tech billionaire (played by Augustus Prew) who runs a technologically advanced hospital that focuses on treating rare medical mysteries at no cost to the patient. He assembles a group of genius doctors and cutting-edge, state-of-the-art equipment to help the cause, but it's his own secret illness that's fueling the fire.
Odette Annable also stars in the new series as a doctor who works in the hospital. InStyle caught up with Annable at the Television Critics Association and she told us six reasons why this show is worth watching. Pure Genius premieres tonight, Oct. 27, at 10 p.m. ET on CBS, but before tuning in, scroll down to find out what those reasons are.
