Summer TV: NBC Slates Saving Hope Premiere, Love in the Wild and American Ninja Warrior

Erica DuranceNBC is readying for summer with some fresh fare.

The network has announced launch dates for the debut of Saving Hope, starring Erica Durance and Michael Shanks, and the returns of Love in the Wild and American Ninja Warrior.

The Canadian co-production Saving Hope will premiere Thursday, June 7, at 10/9c after the two-hour debut of the reality dating series Love in the Wild at 8 pm.

The new drama stars Smallville alumnae Durance as a surgeon whose comatose fiancé (played by Stargate SG-1‘s Shanks) wanders the hospital as a spirit. The cast also includes Daniel Gillies (The Vampire Diaries) as a newly arrived hot shot doc. (You can check out a video preview of the series here.)

Following its supersized Season 2 premiere, Love in the Wild moves to its regular Thursdays-at-9 timeslot beginning June 14.

Meanwhile, the preliminary finals and the grand finale of G4’s American Ninja Warrior kick off on NBC with a special two-hour episode on May 21 at 9.

    The preview looks good. Maybe I can add that to my summer TV schedule. The only other summer shows I love are Pretty Little Liars and True Blood

    Alumnae is plural, alumna is singular. Sorry for being not only Captain Grammar, but Captain Latin Grammar.

  12. Joy says:

    I gotta say I am really looking forward to Saving Hope. So glad that Erica Durance and Michael Shanks are coming back on TV.

  13. Drew says:

    Here’s a nutty idea: let’s swap the genders of the main characters of A Gifted Man and then shop it as a brand new series. At the very least, we could get NBC to air it in the summer.

    erica durance!! am i so glad to see her on tv again. i love her…though i can’t seem to picture her as a doctor. she really left a mark as daily planet’s intrepid reporter, lois lane. :)) she’ll always be lois lane to me..she did an excellent portrayal of that character. can’t wait to see her treat patients now.
