Rescue Me alum Steven Pasquale has landed the dual lead role in NBC’s Jekyll & Hyde-style medical drama Do No Harm. The project, written by David Schulner, centers on Jeffrey Kohl (Pasquale), a brilliant neurosurgeon who wrestles with his dangerous alter-ego Ian Price that threatens to wreak havoc on his personal and processional life. Pasquale, repped by ICM and Emily Gerson-Saines, is best known for his role as young firefighter Sean Garrity on the FX drama Rescue Me. He recently starred in the USA Network pilot Over/Under. While USA has not officially pulled the plug on the project, I’ve learned that Do No Harm has Pasquale in first position.
Mimi Kennedy is set to co-star opposite Judy Greer in ABC’s single-camera comedy pilot American Judy, which centers on a cosmopolitan woman (Greer) who gets married and becomes a fish out of water in the suburbs having to juggle stepkids, her mother-in-law (Kennedy) and the ex wife of her husband, who also happens to be the town sheriff. Deborah Kaplan and Harry Elfont wrote the pilot, which is produced by ABC Studios. Kennedy, who recently co-starred in Woody Allen’s Midnight In Paris, will next be seen in playing Jason Segel’s mother in Judd Apatow’s Five Year Engagement. She is co-managed by Justice & Ponder and Wagner Talent.
