LOS ANGELES (AP) -- NBC is pulling the drama series "Do No Harm" after two low-rated episodes.

The show is a take on the story of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde, and stars Steven Pasquale of "Rescue Me." He plays a respected neurosurgeon who turns into a dangerous alter ego each night. Other cast members include Alana De La Garza and Phylicia Rashad.

"Do No Harm" started with a historically small audience for a major network debut and then dropped further in its second Thursday airing.

NBC will replace "Do No Harm" with reruns of "Law & Order: Special Victims Unit" for the next two weeks.
