In tonight's pilot episode, renowned neurosurgeon Dr. Jason Cole (Pasquale) has it all - including a dark secret. Every night at 8:25pm, Jason's body is overtaken by a dangerous alternate personality who goes by the name "Ian Price" (also Pasquale). For years, Jason has been able to restrain Ian with the help of an intense pharmaceutical cocktail - that is, until today. Now Ian is free and hell-bent on seeking revenge, which could jeopardize Jason's life, career, and budding romance with Dr. Lena Solis (Alana De La Garza).
About 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 Revenge on 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.
