UPDATED: NBC has picked up two more drama pilots to series: David Schulner’s Jekyll & Hyde-esque medical drama Do No Harm and sudser Notorious, which will now be called Infamous. It is an interesting pairing as Do No Harm was picked up with the very first batch of NBC pilots and has been a strong frontrunner from the get-go. Meanwhile, Notorious was the last drama pilot ordered on any network but was a late bloomer, building momentum from the moment it was delivered.
Do No Harm, from Universal TV and Peter Traugott’s studio-based company, stars Steven Pasquale as a brilliant neurosurgeon wrestling with his dangerous alter-ego that threatens to wreak havoc on his personal and professional life.
Infamous, from Universal TV and BermanBraun, is an opulent soap in which a female detective (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. Liz Heldens wrote the pilot, which was directed by Peter Horton. Do No Harm and Infamous join previously ordered new dramas Chicago Fire and Revolution.
