This was a sci-fi show about a guy and his son having super human healing powers. They got this power from being too close to a van that had some kind of chemical in it and it exploded, causing the guy to be badly burned and having to go to the hospital. The burns soon just healed magically.. Written by Jeff Cloward

Scott Bakula Pre-Quantum Leap Days
20 March 2002 | by See all my reviews

When a truck carrying a sample of alien gas is ran off the road, the container springs a leak. A man and his son is exposed to the gas in an attempt to rescue the driver and a scientist. Discovering the gas has a strange effect on him. He and his son can heal instantly, now wanted by the elderly crime lord who wanted the gas for just that reason. They must discover a way to keep ahead of him and his men. Their only weakness is long term exposure to complete darkness will kill them. This was only a pilot for a series that never made it. Just Like "Exo-Man" and "The Man With The Power". A darn shame, because it's one funny and cool movie that shows the range of Scott Bakula as an actor.
