Fall TV: NBC Picks Up Jekyll & Hyde-Like Medical Drama and Revengeful Sudser

NBC has added to its new drama roster for the 2012-13 TV season by ordering Do No Harm and Infamous (fka Notorious) to series.

Do No Harm is a high-concept medical drama revolving around a brilliant neurosurgeon (Rescue Me‘s Steven Pasquale) who wrestles with a dangerous Jekyll & Hyde-like alter-ego that threatens to wreak havoc on his personal and professional life. The cast also includes Alana de la Garza (Law & Order), Phylicia Rashad (The Cosby Show) and Mousa Kraish.

Infamous, meanwhile, is described as an opulent soap in which a female detective (Californication‘s Meagan Good) returns undercover to the wealthy family she grew up in – as the maid’s daughter – to solve the murder of the notorious heiress who was once her closest friend. Victor Garber (Alias), Neil Jackson (Make It or Break It), Katherine LaNasa (Big Love) and Laz Alonso (Breakout Kings) round out that cast.

In addition to a slew of new comedy orders, NBC’s previously greenlit for fall Hannibal, based on the Thomas Harris’ novels and starring Hugh Dancy as FBI agent Will Graham, the J.J. Abrams-Eric Kripke thriller Revolution and Chicago Fire.

Among returning series, NBC thus far has officially renewed Smash, Grimm, 30 Rock (for a final season), Parenthood and Law & Order: SVU.

    yay!!!! I love Steven Pasquale! so glad that sean garrity will be back on TV!!! :)

  2. Infamous sounds VERY similar to Revenge, doesn’t it Matt? Will be interesting to see if they can maintain the same delicate balance.

    Do No Harm could be interesting. A bit of ‘A Gifted Man’ meets Jekyll & Hyde

  3. Petra says:

    STEEEEEEEEEEEVE! So happy to have him back on my TV.

    Infamous sounds a little Revenge, a little Veronica Mars. Count. Me. In.

  5. Kate says:

    Hoping Victor Garber gets to play someone badass! I miss Spy Daddy!

  6. Jules says:

    Sorry but saw the original(UK) with James Nesbitt…it’s was fantastic!
    I’m not interested seeing a predictable US copy…and even if like Pasquale in Rescue me..he’s not a good choice for a leading role for this…

  7. YowzaPowza says:

    Happy to see Meagan Good starring in her own show. This will surely need to differentiate itself from Revenge. We really don’t need two.

  8. Paul says:

    Do No Harm actually seems a lot like Awake to me. Except, the main character is a doctor not a cop. Does this mean that “County,” the other medical drama is not getting picked up?

  9. Linderella says:

    This is first I’ve read that Parenthood has been reviewed which is great news! I’m still holding out hope Awake will be renewed even if it comes mid-season. Right now it’s the best thing NBC has on the air and Jason Isaacs is absolutely awesome!

    I will have to check out Do No Harm for the cast alone as someone who watched Rescue Me and Law & Order religiously. LOVE, LOVE, LOVE Steven Pasquale. Hope he gets to do a little comedy in the role as he is so great at it.

  11. mia says:

    Infamous sounds really promising. And Phylicia Riccard!!!! I’ll tune in just for her!… Even if that Jekyll/Hyde show sounds like Ringer :P

  12. LOVE Steve and still miss Rescue Me. It may take a little time to adjust to him being a brilliant neurosurgeon but I’m sure he’ll be outstanding.

  13. Pati D says:

    If Infamous doesn’t distinguish it self from Revenge, it might go down in flames. It sounds a tad similar to Revenge.

  14. guest says:

    Is that Ella Rae Peck in the picture for Infamous? Please tell me she’s done sucking the life out of Gossip Girl!

  15. GH says:

    They are filming here in Philadelphia by the Franklin Institute this week -9/20/12-9/21/12
