NBC Pulls the Plug on DO NO HARM After 2 Episodes

Related: DO NO HARM, NBC

NBC has officially cancelled its freshman Jekyll/Hyde drama DO NO HARM, Entertainment Weekly has learned.

The series only first aired on January 31 - but its first outing was remarkably dismal. The debut episode ranked as the second-lowest midseason premiere in television history (at least since Nielsen was founded), and last night's episode only brought in 2.2 million viewers, EW confirms.

In DO NO HARM, Dr. Jason Cole (Steven Pasquale, "Rescue Me") is a highly respected neurosurgeon who has it all - a lucrative career, confident charm, the gift of compassion. But he also has a deep, dark secret. One morning when he wakes up disoriented in a wrecked hotel room amidst several near-naked women he's never seen before, he knows one thing: it's happening again. Every night at the same hour, something inside Jason changes, leaving him almost unrecognizable - seductive, devious, borderline sociopathic. This new man is his dangerous alternate personality who goes by the name of 'Ian Price.' For years he's battled Ian, keeping him in check with a powerful experimental sedative. But now his - their - body has developed a resistance to the serum, setting Ian free once again. And to make matters worse, after being suppressed for so long, Ian is hell-bent on taking Revengeon his oppressor. With everyone Jason cares about at risk - patients, friends, coworkers and even the woman he loves - he's got to stop Ian once and for all. Will they find some common ground, or will they bring each other down? Hell hath no fury like an alter ego scorned.

The series also starred Alana De La Garza ("Law & Order"), Michael Esper ("A Beautiful Mind"), Ruta Gedmintas ("The Borgias"), Lin-Manuel Miranda ("House"), Phylicia Rashad ("The Cosby Show"), John Carroll Lynch ("The Drew Carey Show") and Samm Levine ("Freaks and Geeks"). "Do No Harm" is produced by Universal Television and TBD Entertainment. The executive producer/writer is David Schulner ("Desperate Housewives," "The Event"). Peter Traugott ("Ringer") and Rachel Kaplan ("Ringer") also are executive producers.
