It’s official! NBC has picked up Michael Shanks’ new series, Saving Hope! According to Gateworld.net, NBC has ordered thirteen episodes. This sadly has become a standard for new series rather than a twenty episode season, and it may indicate that NBC has its qualms about the potential of the show. I am equally skeptical that NBC is going to give Saving Hope a fair chance to prove itself. They don’t exactly have an exemplary track record with fans, thanks to the SyFy Channel.
In Saving Hope, Shanks’ character of Dr. Charlie Harris become a patient in his own hospital. While his body is stuck in a coma, Harris’s spirit wanders the halls where his fiancée and fellow surgeon, Alex Reid (Erica Durance), also works.

Saving Hope will premiere this Summer on NBC, and at the same time it will also air on CTV in Canada. The exact date has not been released, but we can expect NBC to start running promotional ads soon.
