Order Of Midseason NBC Drama ‘Do No Harm’ Trimmed By One Episode

NBC Sets ’30 Rock’ Finale, ‘Do No Harm’ Premiere Date; ‘Do No Harm’ Gets Thursday 10 PM Slot; ‘Rock Center’ Moves To Fridays

NBC’s midseason drama Do No Harm has underwent a minor order reduction from 13 to 12 episodes, including the pilot. The trim is said to be for scheduling reasons, which means that NBC brass already have an idea where the medical drama with a Jeckyll & Hyde twist will air. (NBC recently announced the bulk of its midseason schedule, which didn’t feature Do No Harm.) Written by David Schulner and produced by Universal TV and Peter Traugott, Do No Harm stars Steven Pasquale as a brilliant neurosurgeon who wrestles with his dangerous alter-ego that threatens to wreak havoc on his personal and professional life. NBC already is readying another medical drama contender for next season with off-cycle pilot After Hours starring Eoin Macken, Jill Flint, Freddy Rodriguez, Brigid Brannagh and Ken Leung.
