"Do No Harm," the pilot that was seen shooting around the city (we caught them at the school district building) recently, was picked up by NBC.

The show is a Jekyll and Hyde-esque medical drama, starring Steven Pasquale ("Rescue Me," "Up All Night"), as a brilliant surgeon with a dangerous alter-ego. The show co-stars Phylicia Rashad ("The Cosby Show") and Alana De La Garza ("Law & Order," "CSI: Miami"). 

Sharon Pinkenson, executive director of the Greater Philadelphia Film Office, said the plan was always to continue shooting the show in Philly. "It's a dream come true to have two series in town. It's Christmas," Pinkenson said. The second show Pinkenson referred to is "Political Animals," a USA drama starring Sigourney Weaver and Carla Gugino that premieres July 15 at 10 p.m. "The upfronts aren't until Monday so the network is excited about the show and so are we. It's all about jobs, jobs, jobs."

NBC has not announced a premiere date for "Do No Harm," but we'll keep you posted.
