anne heche save me nbc NBC midseason shows: Dane Cook and Anne Heche plus dramas 'Infamous' and 'Do No Harm'NBC is putting six new scripted shows on the air in the fall, and it’s also got six series in the wings for midseason. You can take a peek at five of them below.

The sixth, “Hannibal,” might be the most anticipated of the midseason lot, but we can’t show you any of that yet — because it hasn’t started filming. The show is based on Thomas Harris’ novels and centering on Dr. Hannibal Lecter (yet to be cast) and his relationship with FBI profiler Will Graham (Hugh Dancy).

The midseason comedies:

‘Next Caller’

Comedian Dane Cook plays a satellite radio host whose boss (Jeffrey Tambor) hires a female co-host (Collette Wolfe, “Cougar Town”) without telling him.

‘Save Me’

Anne Heche stars as a hard-drinking woman who has a near-death experience and wakes up believing she’s found God, or God has found her. Her husband (Michael Landes) is less certain.

‘1600 Penn’

Josh Gad (“The Book of Mormon,” “Save Me”) is the son of the president (Bill Pullman). He is not exactly primed to follow in his dad’s footsteps.

And the dramas:

‘Do No Harm’

It’s a Jeykll-and-Hyde story about a neurosurgeon (“Rescue Me’s” Steven Pasquale) who has held his alter ego in check for years with drugs. It looks like the meds aren’t working anymore.


Detective Joanna Locasto (Meagan Good) is recruited by an FBI agent (Laz Alonso) to investigate the murder of an heiress whom Joanna knew as a kid — when her mom worked as the super-wealthy Bowers family’s housekeeper.
