Brenda Song Reveals What Makes CBS' 'Pure Genius' Different From Any Other Show

Brenda Song Reveals What Makes CBS' 'Pure Genius' Different From Any Other Show

If you’re new to JJJ, one thing you have to know is that Brenda Song is one of our favorite actresses and most definitely one of our favorite people.

So, whenever she books a new show or has a new project, we are all ears to listen and learn about it.

Brenda currently stars on CBS’s Pure Genius (which, sadly, only has three episodes left to air) and it’s actually a really amazing show.

“I think that’s what makes our show different. We’re very focused on just how people live and focusing in on their stories,” she shares with NKD mag in the January issue.

“I wish that a place like this really existed,” Brenda added. “I hope we get there someday. To have a place where we can skip all that bureaucracy and that red tape and just get the best care possible would be incredible.”

Brenda is no stranger to the hospital scene — after her mom’s cancer battle (three time breast cancer survivor) — and the tears you’ll see on the show from the cast, are real.

“We [the cast] all know what it’s like in hospital situations. I think that’s why everyone was so emotional when we shot some of the scenes, but it was a really beautiful thing.”

The new episode of Pure Genius airs TONIGHT, @ 10PM ET/PT on CBS. Watch it!

Talking about the surgeries you see on the series, Brenda says there’s no way you’ll ever see her doing that!

“I’m super squeamish haha I can’t even watch the ‘surgeries’ we do on our show!” she shared.

Brenda adds, “The only thing I could probably be is a psychiatrist. I love psychology and human behavior.”

Brenda Song Dishes On New Show 'Pure Genius' Ahead of Premiere

Brenda Song Dishes On New Show 'Pure Genius' Ahead of Premiere

Brenda Song‘s brand new show Pure Genius makes its’ debut tonight on CBS.

In the series, the Disney alum stars as Angie, one of the many tech and medical professionals who help to run Bunker Hill, a state-of-the-art facility which treats rare medical conditions.

JJJ spoke to Brenda ahead of the premiere and got to learn all about the show, her character and more. Check it:

JJJ: What makes this series different from the other medical dramas?
Brenda Song
: Well, it’s created by Jason Katims. He created shows like Friday Night Lights, Parenthood and About a Boy. Jason is known for creating such strong well rounded characters. He builds his stories around the characters and does so with such grace and precision. It’s more than just a medical show — it’s a show about people…who happen to practice medicine.

JJJ: Tell us about Angie Cheng. What does she bring to the table that the others don’t? What are some personal things that you have brought to the character?
BS
: Angie is the tech aspect of Bunker Hill. [It's] Her job to find, use or even create new technologies to help the doctors aide in the care of the patients. Angie and James [Bell, played by Augustus Pew] represent the digital age that is upon us (laughs). I think that with every character that you play, you always bring a little of yourself. With Angie I think there’s a bit of Brenda’s dry sarcastic sense of humor for sure.
