Do No Harm - Casting News - Phylicia Rashad joins Pilot

Add Phylicia Rashad to the list of classic sitcom stars looking to make a comeback next season. But in this case, Rashad is making a move to drama, joining the cast of the NBC pilot Do No Harm.

In the thriller, a modern day take on "Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde," Rashad will play Dr. Vanessa Young, the Chief of Surgery and the boss to brilliant neurosurgeon Jeffrey Kohl (Steven Pasquale). Kohl has a secret: He's managed to keep his dangerous alter ego, Ian Price, in check. But when he develops immunity to medicine that had kept Ian under wraps, his evil side aims to destroy the good side's career and personal life.

A powerful and intimidating figure, Vanessa is Jeffrey's greatest champion but is also deeply confrontational and calls things like she sees them. Rashad joins a cast that also includes Alana De La Garza, Ruta Gedmintas, Mousa Kraish and Michael Esper.
