Sources tell TVLine exclusively that the Dana Delany-led ABC crime drama, which Lynch has been with since the pilot, didn’t pick up his option for Season 3.
But when a medical examiner-drama door closes, a medical drama window opens. We hear that Lynch is joining NBC’s new procedural Do No Harm as a series regular. The actor had appeared in the pilot as a guest star.
Harm, which stars Rescue Me’s Steven Pasquale, Alana de la Garza (Law & Order), Phylicia Rashad and Mousa Kraish, centers on a neurosurgeon (Pasquale) whose dangerous alter-ego is poised to seriously mess with his life. Lynch plays the NA sponsor to Pasquale’s character.
