Shanks’s Saving Hope Picked Up by NBC

Saving Hope, a medical drama starring Michael Shanks and Erica Durance, has been picked up by prime-time US network NBC. Its 13 episodes will air on both NBC and the Canadian CTV this summer. Filming starts March 12 in Toronto. It’s not clear if the pilot episode will be used as already filmed, or re-shot in some way.

This marks the first time Michael will appear as a co-star in a regular series airing on a major US network!  We wish him every success and we’re sure we speak for all of his fans in looking forward to seeing him on our TV screens again.
