NBC announced yesterday a new lineup of pilots, including an as-yet-unnamed comedy by Will & Grace alumna Kari Lizer about two wackily different female friends; a Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde–like medical drama called Do No Harm; Midnight Sun, a thriller centered around an Alaskan commune; and a Western titled The Frontier, which makes it NBC’s third such series commissioned this season, according to Deadline, and means that more or less every network now has a Western in the pipeline.
