Dr. Jason Cole (StevenÂ Pasquale)Â seems to not have a weakness. The handsomeÂ surgeon has risen to the top of his field and has full reign of the hospital he currently practices at, when he’s not lounging in his lavish home orÂ speeding away in his fancy car. He has the life of comfort that many dream of and aspire toward but only few ever get a hint of, whichÂ should make him as content as one person could be. However, onÂ Do No HarmÂ (which you watch the full pilot of hereÂ or here), he has one major problem that impacts every aspect of his life.
Dr. Jason Cole isn’t always Dr. Jason Cole. Every day from 8:25 p.m. to 8:25 a.m., he becomes another person — dangerous Ian Price, an alter ego that he’s controlled for years through medication. However, his body has developed a tolerance to theÂ serum and Ian has been coming out more frequently andÂ staying for longer periods of time. During the time he’s out, Ian becomes dedicated to carrying out revenge on Jason for keeping himÂ sedated forÂ so long, including exacting vengeance on the latter’s friends, family, and co-workers.
Jason might have a vast medical knowledge that has propelled him to the career he enjoys today, but right now, he has to put that knowledge to use in order to preserve the life he has and protect everyone he holds dear. Including himself.
In addition to Pasquale,Â Do No HarmÂ starsÂ Alana De La GarzaÂ as Dr. Lena Solis,Â John Carroll LynchÂ as Will Hayes,Â Lin-Manuel MirandaÂ as Dr. Eli Malak,Â Michael EsperÂ as Dr. Kenneth Jordan,Â Phylicia RashadÂ as Dr. Vanessa Young, Samm LevineÂ as Josh Stern,Â andÂ Ruta GedmintasÂ as Olivia Flynn.
TheÂ series premiere ofÂ Do No Harm airs Thursday, January 31st at 10:00 on NBC.
