Canceled 'Zero Hour' and 'Do No Harm' to air this summer

Two cancelled dramas will have second lives of sorts on the summer schedule.

Anthony Edwards

ABC’s “Zero Hour” and NBC’s “Do No Harm” will both have burnoff Saturday slots.

“Zero Hour” only aired three episodes before getting dropped. Ten more episodes are in the can. It will return June 15 at 8 p.m. with two back-to-back episodes.

“Zero Hour” will then air in the 8 p.m. hour until a two-hour finale is aired Aug. 3. It was created by Lorenzo di Bonaventure, Paul Scheuring and Dan McDermott, and written by Scheuring, Pierre Morel, di Bonaventura and McDermott.

It starred Anthony Edwards (“ER,” “Revenge of the Nerds”), Scott Michael Foster Addison Timlin and Jacinda Barrett. Edwards played the publisher of a paranormal-skeptics magazine trying to save his abducted wife (Barrett) and also discovers he must save the world from a coming catastrophe.

There are 11 unaired episodes of “Do No Harm,” which was scrapped after two airings.

The “Jekyll & Hyde”-ish medical drama will return June 29 and air at 10 p.m.

“Do No Harm” starred Steven Pasquale (“Rescue Me”) as a man with an alter ego. The show debuted Jan. 31, 2013 on NBC after the “30 Rock” one- hour finale.

I think do not harm will succeed, loved the show, they just aired at wrong time, it competed against shows that we were already involved with. I'm glad they came to their senses.

I just don`t understand why they can`t just air the damn things - even at a later hour, just so people can see the conclusion rather than wait months ><

Zero Houre had a good idea, a weak writing and even weaker cast (especially the lead role - Anthony Edwards). The other one, I haven't seen.

Personally i thought Zero Hour was utter tripe and Do No Harm was OK.

Glad that we can watch all episodes after all, I thought both shows had potential ! Zero Hour was nothing short of great I think !!
