Do No Harm
After airing just two episodes, NBC has cancelled its midseason drama "Do No Harm". The network's new comedy "1600 Penn" is also looking on very shaky ground.

'Harm' had the lowest ratings EVER for an in-season scripted series premiere on a major network last week with just a 0.9 rating in adults 18-49. It dropped to an even worse 0.7 in its second week. [Source: Deadline]

The Man in the High Castle
Syfy will adapt Philip K. Dick's book "The Man in the High Castle" into a four-part miniseries, with Ridley Scott attached to exec produce.

The story is set in 1962 and depicts a world where Nazi Germany and Japan were the victors in WWII and occupy the United States. Frank Spotnitz will pen and executive produce. [Source: Variety]

Australian actress Adelaide Kane ("Neighbours") has landed the lead in the CW drama pilot "Reign".

The story chronicles the rise to power of Mary Queen of Scots (Kane) when she arrives in France as a 15-year-old, betrothed to Prince Francis, and with her three best friends as ladies-in-waiting. [Source: Deadline]
