'Do No Harm' creator: 'Don't tax yourselves too much - have fun'

NBC's new drama "Do No Harm" focuses on a neurosurgeon (Steven Pasquale) who has a Jeykll-and-Hyde personality brought on by a (fictitious) condition similar to dissociative identity disorder.

But the show's creator, David Schulner, would prefer you focus more on the Jekyll-and-Hyde part and less on the medical condition.

"I think you go along for the ride," Schulner ("The Event," "Kings") said Sunday (Jan. 6) at the TCA winter press tour. "Don't tax yourselves too much -- tune in, have fun. It's a high-concept premise, but it's a very grounded world. That's what we're going for."

Pasquale's good-guy character, Dr. Jason Cole, is an excellent surgeon who has controlled his alter ego with drugs in the past. The drugs have stopped working, however, and the dark side, who goes by the name Ian Price, shows up every night at 8:25.

When Ian does take over, though, you won't see much physical change.

Do No Harm Offers a Modern Twist on Jekyll and Hyde

Steven Pasquale will be pulling double duty this winter on NBC's Do No Harm.

Pasquale plays Dr. Jason Cole, a highly respected neurosurgeon tormented by his dark side. In this case, his dark side is his alternate personality Ian Price, a devious and wild sociopath hell-bent on destroying the lives of others. Yes, it's the story of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde, but with its modern-day setting, it's more like "House meets Dexter," executive producer David Schulner told reporters Sunday at NBC's winter TV previews.

James Cromwell Moving from American Horror Story: Asylum to Do No Harm

James Cromwell has been utterly despicable in "American Horror Story: Asylum," and we love him for it. Now that he's signed on as a guest star in NBC's upcoming "Do No Harm," we have to wonder if he'll be turning back into the nice guy we usually see him portray.

TV Guide reports that Cromwell's character - a "renowned," but as yet unnamed, surgeon - will join Steven Pasquale's mysteriously afflicted brain doc Jason Cole (who turns into the Mr. Hyde-like Ian Price at the stroke of 9 each night) for an unspecified number of episodes.

Violence On TV: Can It Bridge The Cable-Broadcast Divide?

By Carson Blackwelder

Television Contributor

***

Some of the most popular shows on TV are obsessed with violence — but the catch is that almost all of these shows are on cable rather than broadcast television.

This fall, AMC’s The Walking Dead dominated the ratings, besting even ABC’s Modern Family and NBC’s The Voice by becoming TV’s highest-rated scripted program in the key adult demo.

The Walking Dead doesn’t hide the fact that it’s one of the most gruesome series on TV, and cable is full of similar programs providing scares, thrills and reasons to cover your eyes on a weekly basis. HBO’s Game of Thrones, AMC’s Breaking Bad and FX’s American Horror Story: Asylum are just some recent examples.

Although cable is capable of pulling off such gore, the question remains, can the trend successfully transfer over to broadcast (ABC, CBS, Fox,

Broadcast Networks Fall Sked: New and Old Genre Offerings

With the broadcast networks done shoring up their fall schedule, let’s take a look at what genre fans (and the gays) have to look forward to:

While the global conspiracy themed series have fared poorly over the last few years, it’s not stopped the networks from trying them again and again. The problem for most of them is the ability to maintain the quality of the pilot. Expensive series like this sometimes suffer when the week-to-week production kicks in as well as the cost cutting. Still, NBC will give it try again, and hope everyone does not remember The Event from 2010.

From the fertile imaginations of J.J. Abrams comes Revolution. Our entire way of life depends on electricity. So what would happen if it just stopped working? Well, one day, like a switch turned off, the world is suddenly thrust back into the dark ages. Planes fall from the sky,
