NBC takes 'Do No Harm' off its line-up.

Well, that was quick! NBC has canceled its new thriller Do No Harm, starring Broadway vet Steven Pasquale, after just two episodes, according to The Hollywood Reporter. The series tumbled out the gate, scoring the lowest-rated premiere for a scripted series in the history of the Big Four networks (NBC, ABC, CBS and FOX) when it first aired on January 31.

Inspired by the classic Dr. Jekyll & Mr. Hyde story, Do No Harm followed neurosurgeon Jeffrey Kohn (Pasquale), a man who struggles to keep his alter-ego, Ian Price, under control before he tears his life apart. Every night at the same hour, something inside Jason changes, turning him into a seductive, devious, borderline sociopathic. 

The series also starred Tony winner Phylicia Rashad, The Lyons star Michael Esper, Alana De La Garza, Mousa Kraish and Ruta Gedmintas. Tony winner Lin-Manuel Miranda will also set to have a recurring role. The pilot episode was directed by Tony winner Michael Mayer.

In lieu of new episodes of Dr. Kohn's adventures, NBC will air Law & Order: SVU re-runs.
