'Do No Harm' And 'Infamous' Get Series Order From NBC

NBC has given a series order to two new shows: "Do No Harm," a "Dr. Jekyll And Mr. Hyde"-inspired medical drama, and "Notorious," which will be renamed "Infamous," according to The Hollywood Reporter.

"Do No Harm" stars Steven Pasquale -- who recently appeared on NBC's freshman comedy "Up All Night" as Luke, Ava's boss Yvonne's right hand man -- as a brain surgeon who struggles to control his dangerous alter-ego.

Phylicia Rashad, of "Cosby Show" fame, is set to co-star in the drama. The series will be written by David Schulner, the writer of NBC's short-lived sci-fi thriller "The Event."

"Infamous" is set to star Laz Alonso and Meagan Good. The show has been described as an "opulent soap" in which Good's character, a detective, goes undercover to investigate her former best friend's murder. The twist? She's investigating the wealthy family whose home she was raised in (as the housekeeper's daughter).

The shows join the two other drama pilots that have been picked up by NBC so far this season, Dick Wolf's "Chicago Fire" and J.J. Abrams' "Revolution."
