TV show description:      
This TV series is a modern interpretation of the classic Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde novel by Robert Louis Stevenson.

Doctor Jason Cole (Steven Pasquale) is a highly respected neurosurgeon who seems to have it all — a lucrative career, confident charm and the gift of compassion. Unfortunately, he also has a deep, dark secret.

Every night at 8:25pm, something inside Jason changes. It leaves him almost unrecognizable — seductive, devious, and borderline sociopathic. This new man is his dangerous alternate personality who goes by the name Ian Price and is in control for 12 hours.

For years, Jason has battled Ian, keeping him in check with a powerful experimental sedative. Now, his (their) body has developed a resistance to the serum, setting Ian free once again.

To make matters worse, after being suppressed for so long, Ian is hell-bent on taking revenge on his oppressor. With Jason’s career and everyone he cares about at risk — his patients, friends, coworkers and Doctor Lena Solis (Alana De La Garza), the sweet woman he loves — Jason knows he must stop Ian once and for all.

Doctor Vanessa Young (Phylicia Rashad) is the head of the neurosurgery department, a strong and determined woman who leads by example. Doctor Ruben Marcado (Lin-Manuel Miranda) is a clinical pharmacologist who helps suppress Jason’s alter ego and Josh Stern (Samm Levin) is Jason’s administrative assistant. Olivia Flynn (Ruta Gedmintas) is Jason’s former love interest who also has a son.

Series Finale:     
Episode #13 — This Is How It Ends
While undergoing a complicated brain operation, Jason finally learns the truth about Ian Price.
First aired: September 7, 2013.

    I really enjoyed these two episodes, very disappointed that it got cancelled! I would much rather watch a good show such as this over any reality shows which it seems that that this is the ONLY thing on TV these days. Please bring it back, at least let us see the rest of the episodes and give this show a fighting chance!

    I really liked this show and was intrigued with all the ways that Jason and Ian could duke it out with each other. I was SO disappointed that they cut us off after two episodes!! Plus I’ve always liked Steven Pasquale (White Sean in the Rescue Me series) and he played both personalities extremely well.

    I was just getting into it. It was unique, interesting, unusual. Did they not have enough imagination to know what to write next?

    I really liked this show. I was very disappointed when it was cancelled. You only showed 2 episodes, why even show them it seems it was cancelled before it even started. It was new and original. The cast was good with deep intense issues. I was excited to see how the story would unfold. Please bring it back. I want to see more.

    Air the first season and let the viewers decide!!!!!!!! Stop taking shows away that are good and subjecting us to reality tv crap! Air the episodes that were taped.

    I really liked DO NO HARM. I have had 2 great series cancelled in the past 6 months. It is starting to make me mad that the only options I have on tv are reality shows and shopping networks….This show would have caught on. It was never given a chance.

    I’m at the point where I don’t even bother turning on the tv unless there is a game or dvd device hooked to it. Why bother?! Now that the powers that be have cancelled damn near every good show and left more fortor for the mindless masses to drool in front of in their stead. I wish someone would get a clue. Sometimes it takes more than a couple airings for peaple to get into a show. And if you are going to cancel the show, DO NOT KEEP SHOWING TEASERS FOR UPCOMING EPISODES PLEASE!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Please give the viewers an ending

    I loved this show and was so bummed to hear it got cancelled. I think many shows are not given a real chance to gain any popularity. Sometimes it is the shows it is put up against. Maybe it is me, because I also loved Mob Doctor and it was cancelled too.

  11. CWade says

    I am so upset! I was really interested in the series, “Do No Harm,” and was shocked to discover it had been cancelled! I would like it to come back. Maybe it was aired at the wrong time or on the wrong day to compete with other shows. I would watch it if it came back. If not on NBC, then on another TV station.

    Seriously…what’s the world coming to? I concur with all the comments here, this show could of been something, why not air the remaining shows? People find your voice and get after the ones in charge, this is very upsetting, the decision maker needs to catch a serious beat down lol. He or they need to feel the anguish I feel trying to put logic to their actions, completely absurd and just another sign of the world crumbling around us.
